Is Ginger Cat Counselling for me?

Everyone is welcome at Ginger Cat Counselling.  I work with:

Meet Anine (they/them)

Hi, I’m Anine Cummins. I’m gender non-conforming, a proud member of the LGBTIQ+ community and I’ve successfully overcome trauma.


I work with clients every day on self-acceptance and practical solutions to difficult emotional problems.


My lived experience, qualifications and expertise make me an empathetic and insightful counsellor. I’m so looking forward to working with you.

How I can help you

The world can be a difficult place to live in, and we all need help sometimes. No one way of doing things works for everyone. We will work together to find the right way for you.


These are some of the techniques we can use together:

Why online counselling?

Online counselling has been shown to be just as effective as face to face, and is more convenient and comfortable. You don’t have to travel to appointments (and you can wear your PJs)!


I use Coviu for our video calls – the secure, high quality program created by the CSIRO and used by the Australian Government.


Any concerns?  It is my job to make you feel safe and comfortable.  Please feel free to see if it’s for you by booking an initial session.


Sessions are $150 ($220 for couples).
If you can’t afford that fee, please don’t feel like this isn’t for you. Everyone should be able to access the healthcare they need. Let’s have a chat to see if we can work something out.

I know everyone has different schedules, so I offer appointments after as well as during business hours.  Each session lasts for one hour.

Check the booking calendar to see when sessions are available, and please contact me if none of them work for you.


I use programs that are fully secure with 256bit encryption, the same level that banks use.  The programs I use cannot see the video nor any of the information I store on you.  See their privacy policies here and here.

You don’t need to visit a doctor or get any kind of referral to see me.  Just book an appointment and we can start!

I am based in Melbourne, Australia, and operate online.

Yes, we will have our sessions online via Coviu, the secure video telehealth program created by the CSIRO.

If needed, we can do sessions via telephone instead.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have about this.

Having a good relationship with your counsellor is vitally important, so you need to try people out before you commit.

It’s important to trust your gut, and to keep looking until you find someone you feel really comfortable with.  I won’t be offended if I’m not for you!

While my preference is being able to see you, I’m happy to work with whatever makes you comfortable. 

Everyone is welcome here – cat loving is totally optional!

All sessions are pre-paid, I will send you an invoice or you can register your credit card if you would like it to be paid automatically.

There are no refunds, but if you give me 24 hours notice we can reschedule the session.

Ginger Cat Counselling

I just wanted to say the way you clearly outline what you do, how you operate and the boundaries of the relationship as well as the effort for privacy with Coviu and recording of private information was the start of me feeling safe and trusting you.  You are clearly intelligent and very competent and skilled as a counsellor. I respect you a lot and like you as a person.
