Self Referral: Clients can be self referred and may be able to obtain a rebate from their private health fund.
GP Referral: A GP referral with a mental health care plan allows a Medicare rebate to be paid at the time of the consultation. This rebate reduces the out of pocket expense for consultations. The practice does not bulk bill .
Third Party: Our Psychologists see clients referred by third parties including MAIB, Workers Compensation, Veterans Affairs and Comcare.
Speak to one of our administration staff for further information about your referral.
Appointments are 50 minutes. Prior to your initial appointment you will be sent a client registration form and you will be given information about fees, your rights, and an explanation about confidentiality. You are welcome to bring a support person along.
Appointments for Children: It is our practice to see a parent, guardian or carer prior to the appointment with a child. This allows the psychologist to gather as much background history as possible, along with relevant reports or assessment relating to the child.
We ask that you give us 24 hours notice of cancellation and rescheduling of appointments. This helps us make appointments available for other clients. A cancellation fee may be applied if less than 24 hours notice is given.
For urgent mental health support, please contact your local GP, Lifeline, Mental Health Helpline or present to Emergency Department
