Christene Nissen & Associates offers a range of counselling services to support you through life’s hard times. When you need to talk, I’ll listen. Our services are directed by your needs and we aim to make you feel comfortable and at ease. There are many things I can help you with.
We provide a strong mental health delivery through a cost effective, accountable and efficacious private service ranging from one-on-one counselling and couples counselling, to group education programs and Employee Assistant Program (EAP) services. I also offer corporate mediation and school based training for teachers.
Christene is a registered Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provider, Manager Support Provider (MSP), Critical Incident Manager (CIM) and a registered supervisor.
From the Kingaroy base Christene is able to provide an outreach nationwide front line counselling, crisis intervention and support service to major organisations across Australia. In addition to our Kingaroy clinic, we also have a clinic that is available by appointment at the Hillcrest Private Hospital - Rockhampton, Capricorn Coast Hospital – Yeppoon, and Monto in the North Burnett.
No referral is required to see Christene. Eligible member rebates for Medibank Private and Australian Unity Health clients. Referrals are also accepted through a GP Mental Health Care Plan from your GP to see one of our Associate Psychologists.
A referral from a medical practitioner is not required for face-to-face counselling with our service. There are no waiting queues and generally you will be able to secure your face-to-face appointment very quickly.
I offer counselling in a safe environment where I will support you with your relationship problems and how to develop skills to face your challenges. Relationship counselling helps to build clarity and understanding.
Confidential mediation is offered within the workplace setting for employees experiencing conflict. Third party mediation provides a non-threatening professional setting to step employees through the mediation process.
Programs are offered in schools to strengthen teacher’s skills with supporting children who require specialised assistance. All programs are based on the Prevention and Developmental Model of Counselling.
When working with children, I engage them in sand box therapy and art as a form of Narrative Therapy. I have had 18 years working with children and adolescents.
I offer Group Counselling for parenting, loss and grief, couples and cancer suffers. You will experience personal growth through the use of interpersonal interaction with others.
Christene provides counselling services under the Employee Assistance Program at a number of organisations.
