Are you unsure about seeking help? The following questions may help you decide if you are ready to take the next step and to make an appointment with Ashley to discuss your concerns.

Do I need a referral to see a clinical psychologist?

No you don’t need a referral, you can simply contact Ashley and make an appointment

Will my General Practitioner or other specialists be involved in any way?

As your GP or complementary health practitioner provide primary health support and care for all other aspects of your health, it is preferable for them to be involved so that we can work together to achieving the best outcomes for you.

If you are seeing a Psychiatrist or another medical specialist it is useful for them to be involved as part of the team that will support you.

How do I access health insurance cover?

You will need to contact your insurer to see if your plan includes clinical psychology services.

How do I pay for my sessions?

Ashley has credit card and Eftpos facilities, allowing you to pay for each session at the beginning of each session. The receipt you will receive allows you to facilitate a reimbursement from your health insurance company, employer or other party.
