Boutique Psychology Services FAQs

Do I need a referral?

No, you don’t need a referral to come to us. However, a GP referral based on a Mental Health Care Plan, generally makes you eligible for a Medicare rebate of $87.45 per session for up to 10 sessions annually. If you don’t have a Mental Health Care Plan, our standard fees apply.

Can I get a Medicare or private health insurance rebate?

If your GP or a psychiatrist has given you a Mental Health Treatment Plan and referred you to us, you’re eligible to receive a Medicare rebate.

This rebate is $87.45 per individual session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year.

An additional COVID impact rebate is available until 30 June 2022, covering a further ten sessions.

We can process your rebate online when you pay for your session. Medicare estimates that rebates appear in your bank account within two to three business days.

NOTE: You can either ask your GP to send us an electronic or faxed copy of your Mental Health Plan or bring a paper copy to your first session to confirm your eligibility.

Private Health Insurance
If you have private health insurance that includes psychological counselling as extras cover, you may be eligible for a partial rebate. Please contact your insurance provider to confirm your level of cover.

NOTE: You can only use one form of rebate per session.

If you are eligible for both types of rebates, you’ll need to choose either your private health insurance or Medicare to help cover the costs of each session.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
Eligible students will need to send our invoice to OSHC to claim a rebate.

What can I expect from counselling?

You can count on being heard and respected. Boutique Psychology is a judgment-free zone where you can safely be yourself. While each of our Psychologists has their preferred therapeutic approach and distinct personality, all of us are kind, warm, genuine humans. None of us believes that you’re broken, and all of us have come through our own messy, challenging times.

You can expect your Boutique Psychologist to be insightful and practical. We’re here to listen, learn about and understand you. We’re here to equip you with well-researched and tested tools to help you cope and grow by feeling, thinking, and acting differently.

The result? You can grow your skills in managing and reducing distress and increase your confidence, effectiveness, and joy.

What can I expect from an Assessment?

You and your psychologist discuss your history and experience.

Then your psychologist will ask you to answer a series of standardised questions, sometimes on an iPad, sometimes using pen and paper.

With supervision and support from Cindy, our principal psychologist, your psychologist will work out what everything means.

We produce an easy-to-read report. When your report is ready, you and your psychologist will meet to give you feedback, discuss the report and answer your questions.

The Boutique Psychology team is trained to support you in dealing with learning difficulties and educational or developmental delays.

We offer empathetic, skilful Psychoeducational and Autism Assessments for clients who identify as neurodiverse.
