Assertiveness Program


Dr Melissa runs a skill- based assertiveness program both in person and online to assist in clients in the development of healthier communication and relationships with others. 


The course consists of six individual, one on one sessions, tailored to the client’s needs in the areas of:

  • What is Assertive Communication?
  • Individual Barriers to Assertiveness
  • Consequences of Non-Assertive Behaviour
  • Healthy Boundaries in Relationships
  • Recognising Co-Dependency in Relationships
  • The How To of Thinking and Behaving Assertively
  • Saying No
  • Assertiveness with Difficult Personalities
  • Responding Assertively to Criticism
  • Relaxation Strategies for Keeping Calm and Associated Anxiety
  • Moving on with a New Mindset 


    The total out of pocket (gap) fee for the six session program for persons with a Mental Health Care Plan is approximately $820.

    Please note the upfront fee of $1602 is payable either upfront or in two instalments (of which $820 is rebated by Medicare throughout the duration of the course should a valid mental health care plan be in place).

    Private health rebates may also apply.
