Welcome to Action Psychology

Technology-based Consultations

As of 1st November 2018, I am relocating from my South Yarra rooms and exclusively offering existing clients only online consultations via Skype or Wire , both free encrypted secure application for video. If you prefer you may also choose phone consults.

For booking and payment details please refer to Counselling and Appointments section or just call 0419309609.

Medicare rebates, Private Health insurance and Coaching tax deductions:

I am registered with all private health funds but Medicare will only attract a rebate on a Mental Health Care Plan for rural and remote clients with technology based consultations. If this is a problem, we can discuss solutions. Some private health insurance companies may offer a rebate for Wire or Skype appointments. Please contact your health insurance company to find out if Wire or Skype sessions are covered. Many Coaching clients can claim consultations as part of their tax deductions when they have a ABN.

What will you need for video consultations?

You will need Internet broadband and a computer with camera and audio. Smart phones and tablets can also be used. The quality of the call will depend on the device and the speed of your Internet connection.

Video counselling is not suitable for you if:

You are at risk of suicide, in acute crisis, or you have serious mental health issues – there are limits to what I can do as an online Psychologist. If you’re in this position, contact your GP.

If you are in crisis, please contact the 24hr Life Line on 13 11 14

Why the frog?

My practice logo of the frog is symbolic of the fact that frogs are the oldest surviving species because they don’t stay stuck.

They adapt and take a calculated leap to get ahead! Just like my clients!
