Should I see a Psychologist?

Many people can benefit from seeing a Psychologist.  People seek psychological therapy for a number of reasons and for a variety of problems.  These can range from experiencing day-to-day stress and relationship difficulties, facing some changes/adjustments, experiencing difficulties with mood (e.g. sadness or anxiety), or struggling with the impact of adverse life events or traumas (recent or childhood).

If you recognise that there is something in your life that is creating unhappiness or distress, or you are experiencing difficulties that are impacting on your functioning at work, school, socially or at home, you are likely to benefit from seeking psychological assistance.

Do I need a referral?

No referral is needed, simply call in to schedule your first appointment. However, it is strongly suggested that you discuss your eligibility for a Mental Health Care Plan with your GP. With a GP referral, you may be eligible for Medicare rebates.

 

What happens at my first appointment?

The first 1-2 appointments will mainly focus on gathering information about your concerns and problems, and gaining an awareness of other aspects of your life.  This is so the treating Psychologist can develop a better understanding of your challenges, and what factors may be underlying your current issues.  From this information, the Psychologist will be able to propose the most appropriate treatment plan, including the nature of therapy, recommended frequency of sessions, and whether therapy is likely to be short or long term. The length of treatment will vary from person to person, depending on the complexity of problems.

 

How often will I have sessions and for how long?

The length of treatment will vary from person to person, depending on the complexity of problems.  After the first 1-2 appointments, the Psychologist will be able to propose the most appropriate treatment plan, including the nature of therapy, recommended frequency of sessions, and whether therapy is likely to be short or long term.
