Referral Pathways

GP Referrals

Medicare rebates v To see one of our psychiatrists, you must obtain a referral from your GP or Paediatrician.

Private Referrals
You can choose to book with one of our psychologists without a referral or claiming for rebates.If you have private health insurance you may be eligible to claim rebates for your psychological sessions.

We provide both early intervention to workers who are struggling to maintain their roles, and rehabilitation for workers who have left the workplace. We can commence therapy once we have received your WorkCover medical certificate signed by your GP. Our aim is to get you into therapy as soon as possible as this provides you with the best clinical outcomes.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Research shows everyone benefits from an immediate set of 4-6 psychology sessions after being involved in a serious accident. We provide evidence-based therapy for people who are left feeling anxious, traumatised, dealing with ongoing pain and/or managing significant injuries from being involved in a motor vehicle accident. If you have an approved insurance claim, we are able to bill your insurer for your psychology sessions.
