Individual therapy is generally conducted face-to-face in our consultation rooms in Canberra City and Deakin.  PsychSessions clinicians provide support and aim to help individuals struggling with various mental health conditions by assisting them to build insight, facilitate change, and manage symptoms.  In some instances, individual therapy may be conducted by telehealth or telephone (for example for those living in regional, rural, and remote areas, or those impacted by quarantine or self-isolation guidelines).
