## WORKING WITH JOEY

 

  • How can I speak with Joey? Book a Free 15-min video call to discuss how you can work 1:1 with Joey.  Make sure you are familiar with the Beautiful Balance Program (and our Client Agreements).
  • Do I need a referral? No.  However, you will need one if you are eligible for (and claiming) an Australian Medicare rebate for your 1:1 sessions (see below).
  • Can I claim on Medicare or my health fund? Yes for your 1:1 sessions only.  Medicare rebates are available with a referral for Allied Health appointments from your local doctor within Australia. Print this link to take with you to your GP to discuss further. Check with your private health fund about whether it provides a rebate for audiology management.
  • Should I bring any previous tests with me to the appointment? This is up to you.  
  • Will any testing be conducted at the appointment? Positional vertigo may be assessed.  We may do this over a call if you are living remotely.
  • What are inner ear exercises? These are simple exercises that help the inner ears and balance organs relearn various movements.  These may be done with stillness while sitting, standing or lying!  These are not mechanical or robotic; nor are they quick and repetitive.
  • What is a vestibular audiologist? Someone with specialised study and detailed knowledge of the inner ear, in particular of the vestibular, or balance, organs.  A vestibular audiologist can help us understand the recovery/adaptation mechanisms of dizziness, vertigo, nausea, tinnitus and hearing.
  • What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is a skill that can be practised and taught. It requires three parts: observation of something specific; openness and non-judgement toward what is seen; and cultivating a curiosity each moment.  When working with Joey 1:1 you will learn how to apply these skills directly to your body, your symptoms and your life. You will go beyond what is taught in a group class or workshop.  
  • What can I expect working 1:1 with Joey?  When working with Joey, you will embark on a personal journey over roughly 4-6 months.  Using a daily practice of 15-mins, you will learn new skills and tools that bring you closer to your whole-hearted self.  You will be supported to ignite self-compassion and forgiveness for yourself, so that you can feel confident and calm daily.  You will learn to focus with artful grace and be the person you desire to be.  In specific, gentle steps.
