FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a referral to access Breathe Psychology services?

Yes, you do need a referral to access services at Breathe Psychology. 

Why do I require a referral for this service?

We ask all potential clients to have a referral from a GP, Psychiatrist or Specialist to ensure you have the best possible allied health care support. While we may not need to contact a medical professional regarding your care, it is best practice that our Psychologists have a medical professional that they can liaise with if required. At Breathe Psychology we strive to provide a comprehensive service that aims to ensure the best possible care. 

How do I get a GP referral?

In order to get a referral to a Psychologist at Breathe Psychology, you will need to make an appointment with a GP or Psychiatrist and ask them to refer you to our service. Even if you do not wish to claim sessions through Medicare you will still require a referral to access our service. If you do wish to claim sessions through Medicare, you will also need a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) along with your referral. We recommend checking with the GP’s administrative team if you need to book a longer appointment to obtain a MHCP, as they often require more time to do this assessment. 

What are your fees? Do you bulk bill?

As a Private Practice Psychology Clinic there are out of pocket costs for most of our services. We do not bulk bill but we do provide discounted rates for concession, students and individuals who are experiencing financial hardship. Please click here to view our list of fees.
