WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT

The Steps To An Appointment

We are often told that the most difficult step in seeing a psychologist is the first call to the practice. Whether you are having to draw on all of your will power or you have simply reached a point where something has to change for change to happen, be assured that we know that seeking help isn't always an easy task and we will aim to support you in the process to the best of our ability.

We welcome all clients regardless of whether they are referred by a GP or other referral source or have initiated contact without a referral. We though encourage our clients to seek financial assistance where possible.  For example, some clients receive a Mental Health Care Plan from their GP, which attracts a medicare rebate. Other clients make contact via referrals through their Employer's Employee Assistance Program; or other agencies, such as Work Cover, DVA, VVCS or Insurance Agencies.  We would be happy to talk with you about what may suit your situation best.

Please call or email Kasia Marneros to discuss your first appointment.
