Prior to commencing therapy I like to meet with the parents/guardians of the familiy so I can work holistically and to introduce you to the way that I work. Sessions may be arranged solely for children, or for the family altogether.
Sessions are $146 payable at the time of consultation.
I receive lots of enquiries from Art Therapists and other professionals who would like to set up a practice similar to mine. Some people are wanting to work in schools, other people want to learn more about how it all works. These sessions are tailored to suit your needs. Sessions can be in person, over the phone or on Skype.
Sessions are up to 60 minutes, and cost $130 payable at the time of consultation.
& Court Fees
Sometimes people request reports about the progress of you, or your child. With your permission I am happy to write reports.
The Australian Association of Social Workers sets the fees for Assessment and report writing (subject to GST) $228 per hour.
In addition to this I am able to provide:
Consultancy $265 per hour
Report update $228 per hour
Attendance at court or legal briefings $357 per hour
Would you like me to come to your school?
Setting up an Art Therapy program in a school is a very effective way of providing social and emotional support to students. To get started, all we need is a private space, consent from parents and some art materials. There are a number of clever ways that the programs can be funded. Please contact Kristy for more information.
With a Mental Health Care Plan there is no cost for parents or schools. If funding is to be drawn from IMA or other funding, sessions are charged at a negotiated rate, and schools just need to provide a safe, private space, and art materials.
Kristy currently conducts a visiting service at Springfield Central State School and Amberley District State School.
