Counselling Services

Individual counselling is an opportunity for individuals to speak with a Psychologist one on one. Individual counselling is a collaborative process where you will work together with your Psychologist who will support and guide you in the process. This process is important so that you can feel empowered to address the concerns in your life. At Healing Minds Psychology, we aim to build resilience and enhance your strengths in achieving this goal.

We provide a counselling service to individuals at our private clinics. We charge a lower than standard fee for our services, and if you are eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan, you may be able to receive a rebate funded by the Medicare Better Access Scheme for up to 10 counselling sessions each calendar year. This means you will only pay a small out of pocket gap.

You will need to speak with your GP in order to discuss eligibility. If you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
