Psychological Counselling

Marcus utilises a holistic approach to therapy and incorporates appropriate treatment approaches from a range of therapeutic models (Behavioural, Cognitive, Humanistic) to meet the client’s needs.

Individual counselling is available in-person, at Marcus' office, or online via zoom for those clients in rural or regional areas who are unable to access psychological services locally. Email and phone counselling is not offered by Three Lions Psychology & Consulting.

Clients do not need a referral from a GP to engage in psychological counselling with Three Lions Psychology & Consulting; however, if clients have a referral from a GP, they are eligible to receive a Medicare rebate for a portion of the session fee. Bulk-billing is not available at Three Lions Psychology and Consulting.

Marcus can work with clients on a range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationships
  • Stress
  • Lifestyle Issues
  • Communication
  • Pre & Post Injury Issues 
  • Anger Management

The Counselling Session

The duration of most counselling sessions is 50 minutes. Developing the therapeutic relationship is the foundation of good counselling. The first session focuses on developing the therapeutic relationship and discussing the following:

  • What are the issues that the client wants to discuss?
  • What are the client’s initial goals for counselling?

Follow-up sessions focus on working together to achieve the clients counselling goals.
