Making an Appointment
Individuals, couples or families needing assistance can ring the Centre and make an appointment for themselves or a family member with one of our Psychologists or Counsellors. A medical referral is not required when you come as a private client.
However, your GP may recommend counselling at the Centre. In most cases your GP will prepare a Mental Health Care Plan which will allow you to claim a rebate from Medicare, unlesss you are already covered by WorkCover or some other insurance. Relationship counselling is not covered by Medicare.
You may also be referred for an appointment through your workplace Employee Assistance Program. Ask your Human Services Manager about this option.
