FAQs

There are many factors that will determine how many sessions you will need. At your first appointment, your psychologist will discuss your current needs, goals, and your treatment approach and give you an indication of how many sessions they recommend for you.
Our fees remain well below the recommended Australian Psychological Society guidelines. Services delivered through the NDIS, WorkCover QLD, NIISQ or CTP insurance are charged to the third party in line with their current pricing guide or table of costs, with no out-of-pocket costs for the client.
Medicare rebates may be available through the “Better Access” initiative which may require you to have a referral from your GP, Paediatrician, or Psychiatrist.

Contact us for more information regarding costs.

It’s completely natural to feel a little overwhelmed or nervous before your first session. Your psychologist will be sensitive to this and do their best to make the process as comfortable as possible for you.

Much of your first session will be getting to know you and understanding your history and any issues you may be experiencing. This may involve asking you personal questions or require you to fill out some questionnaires.

Your psychologist will work with you to create a plan for treatment and answer any questions you may have.

  • Georgia had a passion for the Real estate industry, and it was her goal to gain her Real Estate Licence, but she wasn’t able to afford a laptop, or the course required to get her licence.

  • Tracy had unsuccessfully engaged with other supports before, resulting in her being extremely wary and nervous.
