If you are experiencing psychological concerns such as anxiety or depression, you may qualify for a Medicare rebate of around $89 per session.  You will need to visit your GP prior to your first session and ask for a referral to see me via a mental health care plan.Many health care funds offer rebates for psychological services – check with your fund for details.

  • Session times

    Currently counselling sessions are available Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 2.15 pm. To book a time or to discuss working together, call 0423 167 376 or email deborah@djpsych.com.au.

  • Privacy and confidentiality

    The information shared in session is private and confidential.

    The only exception to this is if you should present as a risk of harm to yourself or others or in cases of abuse or neglect of children or dependent adults.  In these circumstances, I will advise you of my concerns and discuss next steps with you.

    There may be occasions where you would like me to liaise with other parties or health care providers on your behalf (for example, schools, employers, doctors, allied health care providers).  In these situations, I require your permission to make contact and we will discuss in advance the nature of information to be shared.

    • Cancellation policy

      I understand that needs and priorities can change and will work with you should you need to reschedule your session time.  Should you need to cancel with less than 48 hours notice, a $50 fee will be charged.  Should you need to cancel with less than 24 hours notice the full session fee is forfeited.  Thank-you for your consideration.
