Do you see children or adults?
Both! The clinic offers treatment for children and adults who are experiencing difficulties. The clinic has a specific focus on treating adult survivors of abuse and/or neglect, but offers treatment for a variety of difficulties.
Do I need a referral to see a psychologist?
You do not need a referral if you are paying private fees (no Medicare rebates).
If you wish to claim Medicare rebates for your sessions, you will need a valid referral from a GP or psychiatrist under the Better Access to Mental Health Plan or the Enhanced Primary Care Plan.
How Do I pay?
Payment is due in full at the end of each session, either in cash or using the clinic’s EFTPOS facilities. For your convenience, HICAPS and Medicare Easyclaim facilities are available to allow you to claim your Medicare or private health insurance rebates at the time of payment.
What should I bring to my first session?
If you haven’t returned your Client Intake and Informed Consent forms to the clinic prior to your first appointment, please bring these with you.
If you are claiming a Medicare rebate, please bring your valid GP referral to your first session.
What should I expect from my first session?
Your first session will typically involve discussion of your history and current issues of concern so that your treating psychologist can develop an intervention plan with you.
