Need a psychologist in Pascoe Vale?

Psychologists are educated in the science of how people feel, behave and react.

They can help you with mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress and eating disorders. Psychologists do not prescribe medications but use a number of scientifically supported tests to determine the mental health and wellbeing of people.

Our psychologist works closely with our team of doctors to help ensure patients are provided with the most effective evidence-based treatments for their emotional and psychological concerns.

  • Fears, phobias, and anxiety problems

Is a referral required?

You don’t need a referral for private consultations.

However, to access Medicare benefits for psychology services, you must be referred to your psychologist by a GP who is managing your treatment under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan.

Are there any rebates?

Some psychology fees may be covered by Medicare (but you’ll need a doctor’s referral).

Otherwise, if you have private health cover, and it includes psychology, you can claim a benefit with all the major health funds.

Who will treat me?

Our in-house psychologist is Dr Jenny Ricketts.

With over 20 years’ experience as a psychologist, Dr Jenny is committed to working with people who are seeking support, understanding, clarity, and direction.
