IS CINEMATHERAPY RECOGNISED BY THE AASW?
No, it is not at the moment. However, the practice of Cinematherapy is used by many mental health practitioners as seen on the website link: Professional Directory (cinematherapy.com). Also, I don't only provide Cinematherapy in my practice, and you have other options if you prefer.
What will I benefit from film therapy in a counselling context rather than doing it myself?
There are self-help books that you can use on your own, and this is very much your choice. However, like with many things, being able to have a sounding board and safe space to express your feelings, thoughts and experiences is a really beneficial thing as well.
Can I claim your services through Medicare?
My services cannot be access through Medicare rebate currently.
Do we have to do Film Therapy?
No, I am trained in other counselling modalities and we can do 1 hour sessions that do not involve Cinematherapy.
