Terms & Conditions

Privacy Agreement

As psychologists we are required to:

  • Keep information about you private; open a client file for notes and information about the content / progress of counseling.
  • Seek additional assistance for you; or, contact relevant authorities if I think there is a risk of you harming yourself or others.
  • Submit information / notes if subpoenaed by court.

I may also:

  • Contact other workers that you have seen, like your doctor or another counsellor
  • Discuss your situation with a supervisor to prepare for your sessions

Medicare Rebate:

For a Medicare rebate you require a mental healthcare treatment plan. Also, your referring medical practitioner must receive updates from the psychologist to approve the continuation of treatment before the additional sessions can be claimed though Medicare.
