"I could not have asked for a better psychologist. Ida was very generous with her time and did not rush Zara. Zara ended up needing extra time for breaks when doing the assessment and it was no problem for Ida.”
"I loved that she could do the assessment in our home as it meant my daughter felt comfortable. Ida report was very extensive and impressive to many that have read it since. Was extremely helpful to the school, tutor and speech therapist. I would have great pleasure in recommending Ida to anyone looking to confirm a possible reading disability.”
"Highly recommended! Ida was wonderful to work with. She is a great listener who is truly interested in providing the best possible service. She was very accommodating in where and when the work could be done, and she provided valuable insights with her solution-focused recommendations”
"Excellent service and would recommend for any business. These people are a must for anyone looking to get their team motivated and back on track.”
No, however should you be eligible (speak with your GP/Psychiatrist/Paediatrician) and wish to claim a rebate from Medicare, you will need to obtain a referral letter and Mental Health Care Plan from any one of these practitioners and provide this at the initial appointment.
Psychological counselling services qualify for a Medicare rebate if you bring a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician to the first session. Your Private Health Fund “extras cover” may also cover you for counselling* but you cannot claim from both Medicare and your Private Health Fund for these services. Medicare often pays a higher rebate that what may be claimable from your Private Health Fund.
Assessments are not covered by Medicare. Your Private Health Fund “extras cover” may cover you for assessments*
(* Please check with your Private Health Fund directly).
With a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) you are able to access a Medicare rebate for Counselling services. Please take note of the following point:

An Assessment refers to testing and other forms of information gathering done to help answer client questions about possible learning disabilities, attention problems, behavioural problems, school/work difficulties, or other cognitive concerns. Initially, the Psychologist will meet with you to discuss your current issues and collect any relevant historical information. The Psychologist will determine the appropriate testing suite to be performed. This approach will scientifically assess the client’s condition. Completing the assessment suite with you or your child may take up to 3 hours at a time, or may be undertaken over a number of appointments (conditions apply).
After completing the testing, the Psychologist will prepare a written report with the results and tailored recommendations, and meet with you to discuss the assessed outcomes.
The number of sessions you have with your Psychologist will vary for each individual. Some issues may only require brief interventions while others may be more complex and require more time. As you work with your Psychologist over the first three to four sessions you will develop a plan with them to give you a better idea of what to expect.
