Even capable people need a hand sometimes
We all have frailties and strengths. Sometimes they are hidden and sometimes glaring, feeding depression, anxiety, stress, overwhelm or just plain persistent unhappiness. Therapy can help us understand and manage the interplay between our frailties and strengths so that we feel more in charge, more useful, and more joyful in our lives.
If you are feeling unhappy, overwhelmed, stressed, irritable, intolerant and reactive, or if you are unable to focus or think clearly or creatively, therapy might help you regain perspective, be kinder to yourself, getting depressed, anxious or sick, performing poorly or disrupting relationships.
We want to help you:
• live a more inspired and joyful life
• take charge of what matters
• feel nourished and supported
• enjoy and savour relationships
• manage mental and physical health concerns skillfully
• regain professional performance

• Private Health Funds ‘extras’ cover apply to most psychology services.
• Medicare rebates, are available if you have seen your GP an the GP has given you a referral to a psychologist as a part of a GP Mental Health Care Plan.
While not required-may be useful where there is a related medical and/or psychiatric condition, referrals are necessary to obtain Medicare rebates as part of a mental health care plan when seeing a psychologist or mental health social worker.
What is a mental health plan?
Your GP may provide you with a mental health plan after assessing your needs. The mental health plan enables you to claim a rebate of up to $124.50 for 10 sessions with a psychologist. Your GP will give you a copy of the plan to bring with you, or send it straight to us.
It will include the Doctor’s provider number, and date of referral which we put on your invoice so you can claim from Medicare. We will advise you when you have reached your first 6 sessions and need another referral from your doctor.
Number of sessions
Varies from one to many depending on the nature of the consultation, and type, intensity and complexity of issues. Four to eight is average for those not requiring longer-term support or deeper exploration.
All of our consultants follow the strict guidelines set by law for psychologists about confidentiality, privacy, professional conduct, ethics and responsibility.
Please note if you are out of Adelaide you can organise coaching by skype or email us for recommendations to psychologists in other states.
