About Nathan

Although unable to conduct in-person sessions currently, Nathan can continue to offer telehealth sessions via video and audio call.  With a Mental Health Care Plan, these sessions are covered under new, time-limited COVID-19 Medicare items which are eligible for the same rebates as Better Access items. Privately paying therapy and supervision sessions are also available by videoconference or phone.

Nathan (he/his) is a clinical psychologist originally from the UK, where he completed his doctoral training in London in 2015. Nathan has experience of providing a range of psychological therapies and interventions to people with common mental health conditions, as well as in specialist areas such as acquired brain injury and developmental disabilities.

Nathan draws primarily on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in his therapeutic work. He uses an individualised approach with people to develop a different perspective on their experience and focus on learning new skills to take powerful steps toward a richer, more satisfying life. He tries to make his sessions fun, interactive and playful at the same time as investing in fostering a deep, trusting connection with clients so they feel safe and understood.

The beauty of embracing ACT within therapy is its applicability to any and all life circumstances, such as lacking a sense of purpose or meaning, stress, anxiety, depression, problem anger, grief and loss, parenting and relationship issues, trauma and addiction.

Nathan is also committed to being an inclusive practitioner, serving the needs of people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, sexual preferences and gender identities.

In his spare time, you will find Nathan taking good care of himself, spending time in nature with his wife, listening to 1970’s funk and disco, doing yoga and generally committing to living a valued life.

Rebates & Referrals

Medicare rebates are available, however a GP referral is necessary. To obtain a Medicare rebate you will need to obtain a Mental Health Care Plan and referral from your GP.

If you haven’t yet obtained a referral, we may be able to recommend General Practitioners in the local area whom we already work with.

Rebate Eligibility

Please check with your private health insurance fund to see if counselling is covered. This especially applies to Skype and phone counselling which are only eligible for Medicare rebates if you live in certain rural or remote areas.
