Why do people choose to visit a psychologist?

There are lots of reasons why people might choose to work with a psychologist. Often, they may have been struggling with challenges, such as worries, low mood, and stress, and have recognised that they need some help to get on top of these issues. For other people, they may have experienced a traumatic event and are wanting to make sense of their trauma and reduce the impact it has on their lives. Psychologists can also help people with personal growth such as exploring their personal values, establishing and tracking progress on wellbeing goals, and developing skills for life such as assertive communication, mindfulness, stress management and resilience strategies.

How many sessions will I need?

The work we will do together is personalised and tailored to meet your needs, therefore the number of sessions varies. The number of sessions will also depend on how you apply the strategies and skills you are learning in-between your sessions.

How long are sessions?

Standard sessions are 50 minutes. Shorter sessions (30 minutes) are available and may be more suitable for some children. Your psychologist will discuss with you whether a shorter session may be preferrable.

Can our sessions be online or over the phone?

Yes! When you first connect with the practice we will discuss whether face-to-face or telehealth is the most suitable option for you to receive your sessions. You can also use a combination of formats (some sessions at face-to-face and some via telehealth).

How much do sessions cost?

Standard appointments cost $200 and short sessions cost $120.

Are any rebates available?

There are a number of potential rebates available when seeing a psychologist. If you have a referral from your GP and a Mental Health Care Plan, you are eligible for up to 10 Medicare rebated sessions. Please note there is still an out-of-pocket cost for Medicare rebated sessions, and the full session fee must be paid at the time of the session.

Other options for fee support include private health insurance, NDIS (self- and plan-managed clients) and insurance schemes such as workers compensation or CTP insurance claims.
