Appointments


Sessions are by appointment only, with appointments available Monday to Saturday and on Wednesday evening.


You do not need a referral to see a Psychologist, however it is important to discuss your concerns with your GP, as you may be eligible for a referral under Medicare and a rebate for your sessions. This will also enable us to work as a team with your GP to support you. Referrals are also welcome from Workcover and the Department of Veteran's Affairs.


To arrange an appointment please phone or text 0488 832739 or email [email protected] and leave your name and contact phone number. We will contact you to discuss and schedule your appointment as soon as possible.


If you need to change or cancel your appointment please provide at least 48 hours notice, so that your appointment time can be offered to someone else who is waiting. If you do not provide this notice a cancellation fee may be charged to cover the time that Anne-Louise has set aside for you.
