Making an appointment
If you wish to claim session costs back via Medicare, you must have a referral from your GP (including a current Mental Health Care Plan) or psychiatrist.
If you do not have a referral, you still may be able to see our Psychologists, Please call us and we will be able to provide more information and discuss if our service is right for you and any costs that may be applicable.
The referral enables us to gather useful information that will help in the initial assessment and treatment planning. It also enables us to assess the suitability of the referral to Monarch Psychology Services.
Once we have received your referral one of our Psychology Coordinators will call you to arrange a time for your appointment.
In response to new ways of living and working, government guidelines allow all our Psychology services to be provided by telehealth or video-based services. Get in touch with us for more information.
What to expect at the appointment
At your first appointment, our psychologist will undertake a comprehensive assessment of your situation covering relevant medical history, past mental health concerns or episodes, current and past treatments, social factors, and any other information that may be relevant.
This assessment will take approximately one hour.
The psychologist will formulate a treatment plan with you that outlines the initial therapeutic goals and what you are seeking to achieve, This plan will scope ongoing treatment. On completion of your treatment program, your referring doctor will receive a treatment report from your treating psychologist. This report will outline progress made to date and any further treatment requirements.
