That’s where therapy with a psychologist or registered counsellor is scientifically proven to help you feel better. Counselling gives you the tools, support, and insights you need to feel better.

No matter what you’re dealing with, your background, or your situation, we’re here to get to know and deploy our advanced training and wealth of experience. Our goal is to steadfastly support you to significantly enhance your quality of life.

Psychologist, Counsellor or Psychotherapist?


We get it, it’s confusing! Let’s look at some key considerations.

Standard of Care – counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists are all highly trained professionals. Your standard is related to their experience and specific training. We will match you with a clinician with the right experience.

Medicare & Private Health Rebates
Want to claim back from Medicare? You will need to see a Psychologist or Mental-Health Social Worker. But you will also need to see your GP for a mental health care plan (a special referral).

If you don’t want to involve your doctor for a diagnosis you can book with any of our clinicians, including Counsellors or Psychotherapist and also Psychologists. Many private health funds will still cover services, but please check with yours.

Rest assured that all of our clinicians are fully qualified, registered with a  professional body and insured to help with your concerns. We are here to help you find a great match.

About Pyschology – Your Questions Answered

  • How to choose a psychologist

    First, we find out about your main concerns.

    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 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 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.
  • Do psychologists recommend medication?

    No, psychologists cannot prescribe medication. If you feel you require pharmaceutical support in addition to talk therapy you will need to consult with your GP or a psychiatrist.

  • What happens on your first visit to a psychologist?

    Your first appointment will be like an introductory session. It’s an important opportunity for you to explain what has been going on for you. It’s also a chance for you to check out whether you connect with the Psychologist at this first meeting. The psychologist will ask you questions to make sure she has a clear understanding of what is bringing you to counselling and what you are wanting to achieve from your sessions. This will help them determine the best approach for your treatment.

  • Are psychologist appointments covered by Medicare?

    Yes, providing you have a current Mental Health Care Plan in place from your GP you can claim a rebate through Medicare. It is important to note that there will still be an out of pocket payment as we do not offer bulk billing within our network. If you need a free service you can contact Lifeline for more information, or contact your local community mental health care team through your local hospital. You can also ask your Doctor for a bulk billing Psychology practice.

  • 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 Sydney Psychologist or Counsellor will work with your Psychiatrist or GP to provide joint care.

  • What is a psychologist?
    A mental health professional who holds expertise in the human mind and our behaviours. Psychologists are trained to understand all aspects of psychological functioning and the theoretical approaches that inform psychological research. In Australia, psychologists must hold board-approved education and be registered with a professional body to practice.
  • How to find a good psychologist
    Start by deciding if you want online or in-person counselling. If the latter, you can search by city or region. If the former, you have a much wider pool of choices. To narrow the field and find the right psychologist for you: Use the services of a professional network. Associated Counsellors & Psychologists provides a unique matching service that pairs clients with a suitable mental health professional, for instance. Ask for recommendations from friends. Ensure the psychologists you’re considering are registered with a professional body. Be clear about what you’d like to achieve so the psychologists can assess whether they’re the right person to help. To learn more about finding a good psychologist, or rather, the right one for you, please take a look at our concise guide.
  • 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.

Counsellor Reviews

I've always struggled with anxiety but this year it has really been off the charts. Like to the point I am barely functioning. Messaged this site and got a call back the same day with some psychologists who are all pretty close to my job. The lady who called was really nice and patient.

Niahm S. Pyschologist Service Sydney December 9, 2021

I had a couple of recommendations for good psychologists from friends, but I feel weird about seeing someone who's already working with people close to me. Maybe it's a bit paranoid of me, but I really just wanted a clean slate. Spoke to someone from this site. They asked a few questions about why I needed help and put me in touch with the right psychologists. It was pretty easy and straightforward.

Tom W. Pyschologist Service Sydney December 9, 2021

It's really tricky to find a good psychologist for someone with an eating disorder. I've been in and out of therapy my whole life and have a love-hate relationship with it. You really have to find the right person. From my initial call with a rep from this site, I really felt compassion and understanding and they really took the time to connect me with someone with a lot of experience in dealing with people like me. Glad I made the effort to give therapy another go.

Eilana N. Pyschologist Service Sydney December 9, 2021

Started therapy for the first time and found my guy through this website. Wish I had done this a long time ago.

Hugh L. Pyschologist Service Sydney December 9, 2021

I went through a nightmarish breakup and was desperate to talk to someone. I was extremely skeptical of doing online therapy (pretty much the only option because we are locked down here). Got booked in the next day for a session. Super grateful to this service.
