Services - Chronic Conditions

One on One Sessions via Telehealth 
Online Socializing

I enjoy working one on one with clients to reach their personal goals and desired outcomes. I provide one on one Clinical Psychology sessions via Telehealth Australia wide. These sessions are conducted via our secure online system. 
 

These sessions are generally 50 minutes.

Unfortunately Direen Psychology is not a bulk billing practice. Psychological consultation fees are guided by the Australian Psychological Society (APS). The APS standard consultation fee at present is $300 - I offer consultations for less than the recommended rate, please contact to request specific consultation fees.

 

I am a Medicare provider, which enables you to claim a rebate back on your session, should you have a mental health care plan from your GP.  If you are not eligible for Medicare rebate, you may still be able to claim through your Private Health Fund.

 

Cancellation Policy

Full fee for less than 24 hours notice if the appointment cannot be filled by someone on the waiting list. 

Online Programs and Resources 

Personally and professionally, I have noticed an increased demand for support for people suffering with CFS/ME.  This has prompted me to create alternative methods of assistance and support that can be easily accessed no matter your current health or financial situation. I offer a tiered approach to online programs through free guides and resources, subscription based support and online courses. CFS Safety Net is a free online CFS/ME support group for current and past clients, including: 

  • Live welcome call with Jane

  • Monthly live Q&As with Jane

  • Helpful resources including tip sheets, questionnaires, brochures and more

  • Live informational videos

  • Access to Jane, a clinical psychologist, for any questions and support within the Facebook group

  • Support from a community of like-minded people suffering from CFS/ME

  • VIP access to any offers from Direen Health

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a complex and disabling neurological illness that affects many parts of the body, including the brain and muscles, as well as the digestive, immune and cardiac systems, among others. CFS/ME has a significant impact on people’s physical health, mental health, employment, sense of identity, finances, friendships, relationships, confidence, self-esteem, trust in their body and mind, daily functioning, cognitions, and I could go on!

Recent research indicates that the best way to improve functioning and aid recovery of CFS/ME is with self-care strategies. Some people will require further specialist care and treatment, however the following foundational strategies remain an integral part of recovery for these individuals as well. Concepts of vital importance include mindset strategies and education to promote psychological flexibility and acceptance, pacing, energy tolerance envelopes, push/crash cycles, limitation awareness, sleep hygiene, finding a baseline, reflective movement, purposeful rest, scheduling and structure, educating family and friends, managing relationships, building a support team, pain management, and advocacy. Of course, it is common for people with CFS/ME to experience co-morbid or secondary depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and more. These conditions can also be addressed within 1:1 sessions.

The following information outlines the services provided for individuals, and families of
individuals, with CFS/ME.
