How long are the consultations?
We offer standard (30 minutes) and longer duration (45-50 minute) sessions including the initial assessment. Each individual's needs will be carefully assessed to determine the most appropriate session duration at each stage of the treatment.
How many sessions will I need to attend?
At your first session your psychologist will listen carefully to your story. Together you will create a plan to help you achieve your goals. Treatment duration depends on the number, complexity, and chronicity of the presenting problems.
What if I'm finding it hard to seek help?
We understand it's not easy to reach out. We make it easy - you can book and register online yourself. We will guide you through the process with care and understanding.
Can I get a rebate?
Medicare rebates are available for a range of psychological services. We provide online claiming of Medicare rebates. Any out-of-pocket expenses will count towards the Medicare Safety Net. The Medicare Safety Net is designed to protect high users of health services from large out-of-pocket expenses.
Most private health insurers offer rebates on psychological services. Rebates vary based on your level of cover. Check with your fund to see if you are covered.
You may use a combination of Medicare and private rebates to help fund your treatment – for example, you may claim a rebate for the first session using your private health cover and then claim subsequent sessions through Medicare.
