QUIET MINDS PSYCHOLOGY
Treatment for insomnia and other sleep problems
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 and anxiety
* 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 $190 during business hours and $220 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 20 sessions per calendar year if you have a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP or a referral from your psychiatrist. Quiet Minds Psychology is not a bulk billing practice. 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) during business hours and after hours. I am not currently seeing clients on Saturdays.
Interested in improving your sleep? Get in touch with me by calling 0410 022428 or emailing . 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.
Quiet Minds Psychology will be closed from Wednesday 31st March, re-opening on Tuesday 13th April. Any enquiries received during that time will receive a response upon our return.
