An overview from the Australian Psychological Society (APS) about Psychology and a Psychologist's role.
Relevant information to know before arriving to your appointment.
How to go about arranging an appointment.
Please be aware that current Covid-19 regulations are still in operation here in Tasmania.
Please note that during face-to-face appointments social distancing of 1.5 metres will still occur. Given the size of our office and waiting area out the front please refrain from bringing any other people along to your appointment as is possible. Perinatal clients may certainly still bring along their child/children.
We have a hand washing basin and hand santiser available in our rooms.
Please ask to arrange an appointment at another time should you be experiencing any cold or flu like symptoms. If you need to reschedule your appointment please do so no later than 24 hours before your appointment time in order to avoid any late cancellation fees.
A GP referral and Mental Health Care Plan are required for clients to receive Medicare rebates. Referrals without a Mental Health Care Plan (and self-referrals) do not attract Medicare funding.
We welcome referrals from all sources, not only your GP. For example, if you are experiencing some anxiety in relation to your pregnancy or parenting, your obstetrician, midwife or child health nurse may refer you to us. We will discuss with you whether or not an additional GP referral is also required, but we’re happy to arrange an appointment without one.
We gladly welcome clients who self-refer. This simply means you may contact us directly to schedule an appointment without a referral from a GP (or other professional). As with all private fee paying clients, self-referred clients are asked to pay for their session on the day of consultation. Please note Medicare does not provide rebates for self-referred clients, however clients should check their private health fund for rebate information.
