Group Therapy

Anxiety & Depression Self Management Group

The Anxiety & Depression Self Management group (ADSM) is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy principles and consists of 10 sessions. It aims to assist adults with anxiety and depression to manage symptoms and prevent relapse.

The introductory session is free and provides an overview of depression and anxiety, how these conditions work, and how treatment works. Following sessions are bulk-billed (with referral under a Mental Health Treatment Plan) and cover practical tools to assist with managing the symptoms of anxiety and depression, which fall broadly into the domains of thinking differently, doing differently, and managing problems. The following sessions run on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. Accessing Medicare funding for group sessions does not affect your ability to claim Medicare rebates for individual counselling.

The process of obtaining a referral to access bulk billing will be covered in the first session. For those without a Mental Health Treatment Plan, private attendance is welcomed at a rate of $30 per session.

The next commencement date will be made known here and the sessions run at our premises at 103 Beach St, Frankston. Sessions run for 90 mins. Expressions of interest is welcome.
