Deborah Jackson

Registered Psychologist & Trauma Therapist


Do you do sessions via Skype?

Yes.  I regularly hold sessions via Skype, Facetime and Zoom.

How much do sessions cost?

Your trauma informed therapy session will cost $250 for the hour we spend together.

Note – The Australian Psychological Society recommends a fee of $267 for a 45-60 min session.

What does private billing mean?

Your therapy session with me is a private consultation.  You will need to pay the session fee at the end of the session.

Currently, I do not participate in any schemes such as Medicare, NDIS, Dept of Veteran’s  Affairs, EAP, Wokcover and so forth.

This allow me to focus my time and energy on therapy and to do this within my own scope of practice, not that required by these various organisations.

Can I claim a rebate on my private health?

Yes. In general, if you are covered for Psychology in your extras, you can claim a rebate from your health fund (if you are seeing me via Skype or outside of Australia, check the conditions with your fund).

This is a therapy driven practice

My work is completely focussed on providing therapy, therapeutic tools and information and training and supervising therapists.

I do not write reports or undertake any medico-legal work.

If you think you might require a report for your workplace, insurance company, educational institution, court case or any other medico-legal context, please seek a Psychologist who provides this service.

On the rare occasion that a copy of your session notes is court subpoenaed, I will forward a copy of your session notes as directed by the court only.  Please be aware, my notes are purely to support your therapuetic process with me.

Are you taking on new clients?

I am currently do have some limited capacity for one-on-one client sessions.

I do have a therapy space / counselling room available on the southern end of the Gold Coast.

If we choose to meet for face-to-face sessions, please be aware that this can change to online sessions at any time, for reasons that relate to public health or to my schedule should I be travelling for work or personal retreat.

The best way to work with me this year will be through the Rewire for Life group program.  You can register here to discuss inclusion in the first round.

Where are you located?

I’m at Elanora, on the southern end of the beautiful Gold Coast.  Perfect spot for a beach break to integrate after a session.

What is the Rewire 4 Life program?

It is a group program that provides a trauma specific learning environment to support healing from complex and relational trauma.
