The parish provides free short term counselling to members of the Our Lady of the Assumption community (parish and school) and their families.
This can be for any issue where people need help or support over one or two sessions.
Counselling is provided by AnneMaree Eddy, Psychologist.
Psychological services are offered for more serious issues. AnneMaree also runs a private practice (from the parish offices) and is available to anyone in need.
Where possible, obtaining a referral from a GP allows her services to be bulk-billed per session, otherwise a fee of $90 per session is charged.
Neurofeedback is also part of the service offered by AnneMaree.
Please note: All counselling is currently taking place over the phone or via video consultations due to COVID-19. If any parishioner would like to schedule an appointment, please contact AnneMaree Eddy directly on: 0403 284 536, and leave a message indicating that you’re a parishioner.
