Frequently asked questions
What is the process?

Assessment

An initial assessment is a 60-90 minute session focused on gaining an in depth understanding of your difficulties and clarifying your goals.

Treatment

Following an assessment session we will discuss a treatment plan which will outline what therapeutic approaches may be helpful for you and how many sessions may be required. Therapy sessions are 50-60 minutes and may be booked weekly, fortnightly or less depending on the goals identified. Therapy is a collaborative process which we will review regularly to ensure we are on track towards your goals.

Will my information be confidential?

The information you provide is governed by the Privacy Act (1993) and the Health Information Privacy Code. This means your case will not be discussed with any other party without your written permission to do so. Confidentiality may be broken if you are at serious or imminent risk to the safety of yourself or others and we cannot gain your agreement to a safety plan.  In these circumstances we will discuss with you what information needs to be shared, with whom and for what purpose.  If you have any concerns or questions about confidentiality please do not hesitate to ask us.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions required will depend on your individual needs. Therapy may be short term (3-6 sessions) or longer term (12+ sessions). We will discuss what is right for you at your initial assessment session.

Am I eligible for funding?

GP

It may be helpful to discuss treatment options with your GP. Depending on the severity of your mental health difficulties you may be referred to a community mental health team for support. In some cases your GP may be able to obtain funding for a limited number of sessions with a Clinical Psychologist.

Health Insurance

What is involved in therapy?

Therapy sessions are around 50-60 minutes.  Once goals have been identified following your initial assessment session, therapy sessions will help guide you towards achieving your goals.  There are many different therapeutic approaches and you can decide what is right for you with your therapist.  Therapy requires time and commitment. A positive relationship with your therapist where you feel heard, accepted and respected is important. This will allow you to be open and develop the trust and courage you need to confront difficulties and make needed changes.  In most cases attending therapy sessions themselves is not enough; you will need to actively apply skills and strategies learnt in the sessions in your daily life. We will help you with this by assigning you tasks and challenges to carry out between sessions.

Can a Clinical Psychologist prescribe medication?

Clinical Psychologists are not medical doctors and do not prescribe medication however they may work alongside your GP or Psychiatrist if medication is indicated to support your treatment. A Clinical Psychologist specialises in the use of evidence based talking therapies to help you to understand your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences. They will support you to develop insight and strategies to help you reach your goals.
