What is telehealth?

Telehealth refers to therapy conducted online, either via video or phone call. It has also been referred to as online therapy, video therapy, or phone therapy.

Speak with one of our warm, compassionate, and experienced psychologists via video or phone call. 

All our psychologists are clinically trained and are experienced in providing therapy via telehealth. Clients usually find that the telehealth format is very similar to in-person appointments (particularly with video sessions).

Do you have accept mental health care/treatment plans for telehealth appointments?

We accept the mental health care/treatment plan and can provide rebates for up to 20 sessions in the calendar year (2021). Telehealth sessions are currently also eligible for the standard rebate (with a valid MHTP).

Who is suitable for telehealth sessions?

Most clients are suitable for telehealth sessions. Telehealth can be offered for clients seeking help for anxiety, stress, panic, mood disorders, anger, emotion regulation difficulties, relationship difficulties, social difficulties, family issues, work and academic related issues, self-esteem, perfectionism, post-natal anxiety and depression, grief, and personality disorders. 

What is required for telehealth sessions?

  • You will need a private space from which you can do the call. 

  • You will need a computer/laptop/tablet and connection to the internet. Mobile phones can also be used, however, due to the small screen size we recommend using a larger device. 

Can I see my psychologist in person?

The vast majority of our psychologists are available in-person, as well as via telehealth. It will say on the team profile whether the therapist is a "telehealth therapist" (i.e. they only see clients via telehealth).
