General

We provide therapeutic support for individuals and for relationships involving 2 or more people, depending on the nature of the dynamic. 

Individual sessions last between 50 and 55 minutes, and relationship therapy sessions last between 65 and 70 minutes.

Not at all! Everyone at Unison Counselling is fully trained in their relevant field of therapy and would be happy to support anyone regardless of identity or relationship style. 

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it! Our admin team would be happy to organize a call with a potential therapist to see if we’re a good fit. 

Unison therapists are unable to provide any last-minute crisis support or after-hours support. For requests that are outside of our professional training or experience, we will be happy to refer you on to the best possible fit. Please see our booking page for 24/7 crisis hotline information. 

Yes we do! Unison is now happy to offer in-person sessions at our office location in Windsor, Melbourne. There is an additional $20 service fee for in-person sessions and the sliding scale still applies.

Many people report that they find telehealth unexpectedly easy to adjust to. There are many benefits to seeing your therapist from home, where you can relax in your own familiar environment and have your creature comforts nearby. We love to meet your pets, so feel free to have them around for cuddles. 

Fees & Finance

We have a sliding scale fee structure that allows us to charge a rate that fits your personal financial situation (which you can see here). We never ask for proof of a person’s situation unless they are attending one of our limited concession slots for therapy. In that situation, all we ask for is a copy of a healthcare or concession card. Note – our concession spots are full at this time – we are adding new requests to a waitlist. 

Let us know! We will happily adjust your rate if things change for you either way.

We do qualify for some private health fund rebates, please speak to your health fund to see what you may qualify for. 

Our invoices have a 7-day processing window and we are unable to see a client for their next session until the current session’s payment is processed. Please reach out to our admin team if you have any issues and we will work with you. 

Any cancellations or changes made more than 24 hours in advance are free and easy to do via your Halaxy portal or by writing to our admin team. For cancellations, changes, or no-shows within 24 hours of the appointment you will be charged the full-fee for the session. 

Yes, we do! Please reach out for further information and to set up an appointment. 

We offer a number of ways to make payments for your invoice. Our practice uses Square and Tyro to process online payments via the emailed invoice. We also accept Afterpay to help make the payment process easier.
