Do I need a referral?

If you are eligible for the Medicare Rebate, your GP will prepare a Mental Health Care Plan for you. Or you can claim from your private health fund if you have extras cover for psychology. Otherwise you can just call and make an appointment.

What about Family Court matters?

When both parties agree to engage us for a family assessment, the solicitors arrange the appointment and all details of appointments and fees are then confirmed.

Ian works with children and adults across a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression and trauma. He also assists  with relationship issues and life direction.
