Pre-booking Six Appointments
It is recommended all new clients pre-book six appointments (usually two weeks apart) at the time of booking their first appointment (whether online or over the phone).

When booking a session you will be asked to agree to Pure Empowerment Psychology’s terms and conditions of service. It is important that you read and agree with the terms and conditions before proceeding to make a booking. If you are unsure whether Pure Empowerment Psychology is the right service for you please contact us on 0413 819 558 for a confidential discussion. We provide services advertised on the Pure Empowerment Psychology home page.

Your first session is an opportunity for you to talk about what brings you to therapy. Our clinicians will ask you some questions to get to know you, your circumstances and other relevant factors. Our clinicians understand the first session can be an anxious time for some clients. Towards the end of the session, they will talk with you about what they think is going on and how they can help you in your upcoming sessions.

Online Psychology Sessions
Pure Empowerment Psychology also offers an online psychology service. The clinic uses telehealth via Power Diary. You will receive all the information you need to attend your video session.
Please note that if you don’t make any further appointments with Pure Empowerment Psychology after one month of your last appointment your file with us may be closed. If you are seeing a psychologist under a MHCP this means your GP will be notified of the closure and you will need to see him/her in relation to further psychological support. Therapy at Pure Empowerment Psychology usually requires a commitment to regular appointments when booking your first appointment. If you are not ready to make therapy a priority at this time that is okay. Now may not be the time for you.
Newsletter/ This Way Up/ Novo Psych/ Updates
Pure Empowerment Psychology may email you a newsletter, a free course called This Way Up or a screening assessment from Novo Psych as part of the service. We may contact you regarding our services. We may also send you email/ text updates. If you do not wish to receive this information, please let us know.
