I am Dr Cathie Stevens, a registered clinical psychologist (AHPRA registration number PSY0001627036) with a passion for helping those experiencing acute or chronic sleep difficulties and sleep disorders. I have completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, with my doctoral research investigating sleep in people with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. I have experience working with a diverse range of people and have worked in community settings, public mental health, and private practice.
What I Offer
I utilise a range of techniques including cognitive-behavioural therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and psychotherapy to treat a wide range of sleep problems and sleep disorders in adults, including:
* Sleep difficulties occurring with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, grief and loss, and trauma
* Circadian rhythm disorders
* Planned withdrawal and support for withdrawal from sleeping medication
* Shift-work adjustment
* Excessive daytime sleepiness
* Nightmares, sleepwalking
* Difficulties with CPAP compliance
Each session runs for 50 minutes and costs $180 during business hours and $195 for after hours sessions (5pm onwards). You do not need a referral to see me. However Medicare rebates (currently $128.40 per session) are available for up to 10 sessions per calendar year if you have a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP or a referral from your psychiatrist. You may be entitled to private health insurance rebates, but check with your insurer first. I have appointments available in person at my Hawthorn office or via telehealth (Zoom or Skype) during business hours and after hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I am not currently seeing clients on Saturdays.
Interested in improving your sleep? Get in touch with me by calling 0410 022428 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, complete the form below and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note: I am in my Hawthorn office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but will try to respond to messages Monday to Thursday if able. I do not work on Fridays.
