Counselling and Psychology

  • Practitioner(s)  :   Virginia Golding,  Jodie Haig

Psychologists and mental health clinicians treat a wide range of mental health presentations, and provide an effective non-medical way to address mental health issues.  Where appropriate, a variety of medications can assist in the treatment of mental health problems.  Your regular GP is best suited to discuss these options with you.   Medical therapy and psychological strategies complement each other, and combining the two is often very helpful in treatment.

Medicare rebates are available to eligible patients referred for psychological treatments on a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan.  The Book Allied Health section of this website provides further information about appointments and fees for this service.
