Please be assured that we are still open to provide support during this difficult time. However, we have had to slightly change how we deliver our services. As of the 30th of March 2020, all sessions will be conducted through a Telehealth format (phone or video conference). We have already had some clients utilising this option with great success.
If you are referred to us with a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP and also meet the eligibility criteria the sessions will be bulk billed until the 30th of September.
If you would like more information or to book a session please give us a call on (02) 9831 5955
Below are some of our frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions, please contact us.
What is a psychologist?
A psychologist is a professional trained in the science of how people think, feel, behave and learn.
Registered psychologists are required to have a minimum of six years of university training and supervised experience, and to engage in ongoing education to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
What does a psychologist do?
What is therapy and how will it help me?
Based on learning and understanding your experience, your psychologist will suggest a strategy to support progress towards the agreed goals.
Typically, this involves devising personal coping methods that target current problems and learning longer term strategies to help maintain the improvements achieved, with the goal being to help you make the changes you want.
Do I need a referral to see a psychologist?
However, if you wish to claim a rebate from Medicare then you will need a referral and a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP.
Other options to see a psychologist are to pay privately with no rebate or through your private health fund.
