How to get an appointment.
Due to Covid -19, I am currently only offering one day face to face appointments (Thursday) and the rest of the week Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom or Phone consultations.
My services can be accessed via:
~~self referrals, where you can call or email me to make an appointment or:
~~through a GP, where he/she can fax or email a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP).
Please note that a GP-MHCP gives you access to medicare rebates for 10 sessions in a calendar year. Most Private Health Funds will pay a rebate after the first 10 sessions have been used.
Currently all Telehealth appointments are covered by Medicare if you have a GP-MHCP. Since extended restriction due to Covid-19 the government has increased the number of sessions to 20 for 2021
Generally, I will call you and organise an appointment if I receive a MHCP, email or text.
If you have not heard from us within a fortnight, please call or text us to follow up.
