I am now offering psychological Support via online Video Conference. City, Regional and Rural clients can now access psychological services with me via face-to-face Skype or Zoom Video Conference from their own homes or offices. In late 2017 the Australian Government recognised the need for online psychology services with the expansion of the Better Access initiative to include telehealth psychology services (as outlined in the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).
A 12-month trial of online counselling (using Skype video conference) has convinced me that the quality of 'in-person' therapy can be achieved via the internet. Using today's technology and encrypted secure services, such as Skype and Zoom video conferencing, online sessions are a discrete method of counselling and offers clients greater accessibility and convenience.
Call me directly or email me for a confidential chat to see if face-to-face Skype Video conference sessions are right for you.
Following the bushfires of 2019-20, the Government has introduced 10 Medicare rebatable services available in each calendar year for two years (2020 and 2021), referred to as the Bushfire Recovery Access Initiative, for those affected by bushfires.
The Government has also removed the necessity for a referral from a GP to ensure easy access to mental health professionals for those affected. Please note: Clients who are eligible under this initiative and wish to work with me, will not be charged my usual out-of-pocket fee.
