Do I need a referral?
You do not require a referral to access any of our services; however, if you decide to seek a referral for psychological therapy from your GP or another medical doctor you may be eligible for rebates.
How can I have my Psychological Therapy sessions rebated?
Your GP or another medical doctor can refer you to us under a Mental Health Care Plan, which entitles you to a Medicare rebate for up to 10 individual, and 10 group sessions per calendar year. To access this rebate, talk to your doctor about your eligibility for a Mental Health Care Plan. Please address referrals to Amy Kate at The Mindful Collective.
This can be a good solution if you’re looking for ongoing support, and can also be combined with additional sessions via private health insurance.
If you are insured with a private health fund, you may be eligible for psychological service rebates. In order to determine your eligibility, you will need to contact your fund and ask for the rebate about you’re entitled to given your level of cover.

There is ample underground parking available.
How do I make an appointment?
Does Amy Kate provide services for all genders?
Absolutely! Although our branding is often considered feminine, we enjoy our sessions with all genders.
What is the difference between online coaching and psychological therapy?
Psychological therapy includes the treatment of mental health disorders. Although this can happen online, in-person time is important as well so we prefer to meet people seeking psychological therapy in the clinic initially. Learn more HERE.
Online coaching benefits people by building on their current wellbeing foundation to raise them higher and help them flourish, taking them to their own personal next level. Many book in for psychological therapy and after a few sessions will change to do online coaching to help them maintain their new mindset, habits and approaches. Learn more HERE.
Do you offer phone or online consultations for psychological therapy?
Yes! If you cannot attend our clinic (e.g., if you live in a remote location). Medicare rebates for online consultations are dependent on multiple criteria. Payment will be taken over the phone prior to your consultation. If applicable, you may claim the consultation with your Private Health Fund. Please speak with our friendly reception staff about the possibility of a phone or online consultation.

What is an online consultation?
Our online consultations are similar to a video skype call or facetime; however, on a much more secure platform called Sylo Confidential.
