Couples Therapy

Relationship counseling is the process of counselling the partners in a relationship to identify, recognise and acknowledge the themes of their relationship and their individual contribution to any recurring difficulties

Transactional Analysis

TA is a therapeutic framework in which social and intra-personal transactions are analyzed to determine the ego structure (Parent, Adult, Child) as a basis to understanding behaviours and creating the conditions for positive change.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy involves the use of an altered state of consciousness, or trance state, to temporarily deactivate the conscious, rational aspect of the brain to allow the subconscious part, which influences mental and physical functions, to be more receptive to therapeutic interventions.

As part of providing a psychological service to you, Charles Lucas needs to collect and record personal information from you that is relevant to your situation such as, your name, contact information, medical history and other relevant information as part of the provision of psychological services to you. This collection of personal information will be a necessary part of the psychological assessment and treatment that is conducted.

Purpose of collecting and holding information

Your personal information is gathered as part of your assessment and treatment and is kept securely, and in the interests of your privacy, used only by your psychologist and the authorised personnel of the Practice (as necessary). Your personal information is retained in order to document what happens during sessions and enables the psychologist to provide a relevant and informed psychological service to you. A more detailed description is provided in the Practice's "Privacy Policy for the Management of Personal Information". The Privacy Policy contains information about how to access and seek correction of your personal information if required, and how to lodge a complaint about the management of your personal information.

Access to client information

You are entitled at any stage to access your personal information subject to exceptions in the relevant legislation. Charles can discuss the different possible forms of access with you.

Disclosure of personal information

All personal information gathered by Charles Lucas during the provision of the psychological service will remain confidential except when:

  • It is subpoenaed by a court or,
  • failure to disclose the information would in the reasonable belief of Charles Lucas place you, or another person, at serious risk to life, health or safety, or your prior approval has been obtained to,
  •  provide a written report to another professional or agency.
  • discuss the material with another person (parent, employer, health provider)
  • disclose the information in another way, or,
  • you would reasonably expect your personal information to be disclosed to another professional or agency (GP) and disclosure of your personal information to that third party is for a purpose which is directly related to the primary purpose for which your personal information was collected, or,
  • disclosure is otherwise required or authorised by law.

Fees

The consultation is usually around 50 minutes in duration and Medicare rebates are available if you have been referred by your GP and have a Mental Health Care Plan in place. If payment is covered by a third party payer then the organisation will be billed separately. Charles Lucas uses Healthkit to manage the fees and this software, supported by the Federal Government, encrypts all information regarding credit/debit card details so you can be assured of security in regard to this information, and indeed, any other information you provide.
