Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral to see a psychologist or counsellor?

No referral is needed.

Can I use private health insurance?

Yes, it is likely you can for a psychologist, but not for a counsellor. Check prior to your first appointment.  We cannot guarantee “what” is covered on your policy.  Please ask!

What is a mental health plan?

A mental health plan is special referral provided by your GP or psychiatrist to a psychologist for the provision of counselling to treat specified mental health conditions. Only the listed conditions are eligible.  A mental health plan can only be made out to an individual, not a couple, nor a family.

How many sessions of therapy does a mental health plan allow?

Your GP determines the number of sessions in the letter sent to the psychologist. The maximum limit is 6 visits in the first referral, an additional 4 visits after one mental health review, then 6 if special exceptional circumstances have occurred.  Usually this means that there are up to 16 sessions in the calendar year, if the GP recommends this is required for the condition being treated.

Do you offer bulk billing / hardship rates?

Psychologists/counsellors will consider hardship rates when client is experiencing financial hardship. Clients are encouraged to discuss a payment strategy to be able to afford the “type” of counselling and therapist with sufficient skills to treat the referred condition.

Bulk Billing occurs when a psychologist has a referral from a GP or doctor (psychiatrist or paediatric doctor) and the psychologist decides to reduce their rates to the amount rebated by Medicare. This means that there will be no gap payment, nor additional costs.

Ask the psychologist or counsellor you have booked for a reduced rate.  We require that you discuss this directly with each person offering counselling, as each therapist has different rates and booking requirements.  If you haven’t asked, then you won’t know what is possible!

I'm confused! Help!

That's why we offer a  Come and have a chat to us and we will work through the best psychologist or counsellor for you, confidentially and without obligation. It is confusing for the doctors and psychologists as each year the rules and amount of sessions vary. Sometimes it is not clear how to provide the best service to you, that is why we have created a Free Check Up!
