Our Services

Psychological therapy for private patients

You do not need a GP Mental health care plan (MHCP) or GP referral to attend our practice. If you are attending our practice as a private patient and seeing one of our registered or Clinical psychologists, you may be eligible for a rebate under a GP MHCP. A GP MHCP currently covers up to 20 sessions per calendar year.

Comprehensive Assessments

Assessment is a way for psychologists to use clinical tools and psychometric instruments to answer specific referral questions, understand you, inform a diagnosis, help plan the most effective treatments or offer recommendations best suited to your needs.

For example, psychological assessment may look at personality characteristics, emotional states, and coping mechanisms. Neuropsychological assessment typically includes these components of a psychological assessment and evaluation of multiple areas of thinking, memory and executive functions. Participating in an assessment can happen for a variety of reasons, and each assessment is tailored for the individual needs of the person undergoing evaluation. Depending on your reasons for seeking an assessment, different tools may be used.

Sometimes assessment is requested by a third party, such as an employer or independent agency. Throughout the assessment process you have the right to inquire about the nature or purpose of all procedures and understand how the information you provide may be used. You also have the right to know the test results, interpretations, and recommendations from your assessment.

For children and adolescent assessments, please note that both parents/carers must consent to the assessment unless we have been provided with documentation to advise otherwise.
