  • What should I expect for my first visit?
    During your initial session with a psychologist, they will take time to get to know you better and understand the factors that have led you to seek support. Their primary focus is to ensure you feel comfortable and well-informed about the therapeutic process. Typically, they will initiate the session with some general conversation to help you settle into the therapeutic environment. Additionally, the first session offers an excellent opportunity to discuss your goals. Many individuals may feel stuck in their problems, and setting clear goals is essential for the therapeutic process. Take some time to reflect on what you would like to achieve and what changes you'd like to make in your life. Sharing these goals with your psychologist can help ensure that you get the maximum benefit from your therapy sessions. All sessions are 50 minutes.
  • How much does a session cost?
    Please note, we are not a bulk-billing clinic. Please speak to your GP if you require bulk billed services.
  • Do I need a MHCP from my GP?

To receive a rebate for your sessions, you will need a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) from your GP prior to attending your first appointment.
