We have established our practice on the philosophy of collaborative patient care

At MYND we value the importance of providing a comprehensive and quality service to our referring GPs.  We achieve this by:

 

  • Informing you in writing when your patient has attended their first session, and updating you with relevant progress information every six sessions (or as required).

  • Patients may present to our clinic before obtaining a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) and want to claim their sessions on Medicare. If we feel they may qualify for a MHCP, we will refer them back to you with a letter outlining the reasons why they may meet criteria.

  • Our consulting fees are reasonable.  We charge below the Australian Psychological Society's (APS) chartered rate for psychologists; however patients will pay a gap. Our experience suggests that patients value the service more, and attend more regularly, if they incur some cost for treatment. 

  • We offer after hours appointments

  • We work collaboratively with our referring GPs and will contact you with any concerns regarding your patients. 

  • We will always ensure your patients are allocated to the most suitable psychologist

  • Our psychologists are highly qualified to work with a broad range of presenting issues, however if we are unable to treat a patient, we will contact you to discuss the situation and provide alternative referral options.
