How to choose a psychologist
Many people call us asking us how to choose the best Psychologist or Counsellor. When you call we will ask you about the issues that are bringing you to counselling.
We can tell to you about the different Psychologists and Counsellors available and the type of approach they each use in their work. We can also tell you about the therapists particular areas of expertise. For example you may be looking for someone with strong experience in trauma, or depression or anxiety or another specific issue.
– Psychological therapy can vary from practical short term treatments, to longer term treatment to address longer standing issues. You may have heard of therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Psychodynamic therapy.
– If you have a preference for working with a particular model of change, we can tell you which of our Psychologists or Counsellors works in your chosen modality. We can also explain the different therapies to you so you can make a better choice.
– Finally, if you are still not sure on who you wish to see, we can send you a selection of biographies with information on the Clinical Psychologists and Counsellors for you to choose from.
How much does it cost to see a Psychologist?
The price of consultations varies depending on the Psychologist or Counsellors qualifications and experience as well as their location. Generally it starts from $150 per consult.
We are not a bulk billing practice. Your GP may be able to recommend someone to you in your area who does not charge a gap.
Do I need a referral to see a Psychologist?
If you want to claim through Medicare, you will need a Mental Health Care plan referral from your Doctor. You will also need to request a Registered Psychologist or Clinical Psychologist when you call.
Our Counsellors are not eligible for Medicare rebates though private health rebates may apply. Couples counselling is not eligible for Medicare Rebates, but again private health rebates may apply.
Should I see a Psychiatrist or Psychologist?
A Psychiatrist is a Medical Doctor with further specialist training who can prescribe medication. A Psychologist can not prescribe medication, but can help you with therapy. If you require or want to consider medication, your Psychologist or Counsellor will work with your Psychiatrist or GP to provide joint care.
We think your therapist or psychologist should believe in establishing a warm and genuine therapeutic relationship with you. In fact, the quality of the relationship with your therapist is one of the most important factors of successful treatment.
Our therapists are carefully selected caring professionals who share the belief that a good therapeutic relationship can help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself and free yourself from emotional turmoil.
Therapy can help you to to experience and explore previously intolerable feelings and can develop your capacity to be more emotionally accessible and responsive to others. Limiting thought patterns and unproductive behaviours may be uncovered and explored. You begin to function as the author in your own life.
