I’m an Australian-trained General Practitioner with Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. I am also Board Certified in Lifestyle Medicine. In addition to this, I continue to partake in regular professional development in various aspects of healthcare so I can offer my patients a progressive and evidence-based approach.
With each coaching session, you’ll gain more self-awareness, allowing you to act with purpose in all areas of your life. In an organisational setting, coaching can lead to increased levels of motivation, greater empathy, and a culture that engenders collaboration and innovation.
According to the International Coach Federation (ICF, 2009)
Before your first session, I offer a free phone consultation – this gives us the chance to chat and assess if we are the right fit for each other. The call lasts from 15 to 20 minutes.
After this initial call, we can set up a time for your first session. I offer both traditional Personalised Coaching online or in-person, as well as Walk and Talk Sessions in South East Melbourne and Bayside. Sessions are ongoing, and I’ll often offer techniques for you to use in between sessions. Sessions are 60 minutes in length.
Coaching focuses on the present. Through understanding our behaviours, habits, and perspectives, as well as gaining clarity over our present circumstances, we can shape our experience of reality, and therefore, better shape our future. Coaching is unique in that it is participatory, which is why it often elicits positive results quickly. Coaches often have professional backgrounds.
Therapy is a different yet equally valuable tool for personal growth. However, the focus is on looking at how past experiences have led to our present circumstances and how we experience our current reality. As a qualified therapist with a medical background, I provide both services to my patients. In fact, depending on what you need during each session, I may focus on mental health wellbeing during some sessions, and draw upon coaching, motivational therapy, and Lifestyle Medicine modalities during others.
My fee is $275 (excl. GST) per hour.
No, the Medicare rebate is only available for mental health services.
