You do not need a referral to book an appointment. You can self refer and pay in full. A Mental Health Care Plan from your GP is required to access Medicare rebates. You can also receive Medicare rebates if you have a Mental Health Care Plan referral from a psychiatrist.
The number of sessions that you will need can depend on things such as the severity of your distress or your individual goal plan. During the first appointment your therapist will outline some points that require work and suggest a number of sessions and a session plan that we both agree on. It’s best to book appointments in advance so the treatment plan is consistent.

Yes. Mind Strategy provides telehealth to people living remote and can use video calls or telephone calls to people who are disabled or unable to travel. Face to face appointments are preferred as they provide a level of interpersonal interaction and warmth. Payments for telehealth are made through Medipass. Medicare rebate will be processed through Medipass in the same transaction.
