Our Process
Contact CCP Psychology
Free 15 minute phone consultation
At CCP Psychology, we care about your needs. Before we book your first appointment, our experienced psychologist will discuss with you what your needs are, how we can help you achieve your goals and whether we are a good fit for you.
Booking an appointment
If the psychologist believes our service is appropriate, we book an appointment either via telehealth, phone or face-to-face. First appointments are 80-90 mins. Subsequent appointments are 50-60 mins. After hours appointments (5-8 pm) are available on request for a small extra fee.
Forms to be completed
Once your appointment is booked, CCP Psychology will send you two emails with forms to fill out. 1. Intake form
2. Consent form
Once these have been filled out and sent back, you will receive a third email 3. Confirmation of First Appointment (which will also have parking information attached). We have free parking onsite to make accessing us easier.
After your first appointment, payment can be made via cash, EFTPOS or credit/debit card at the front desk through our booking system. You will be invoiced the full session amount. If you are claiming a rebate, it will be process there and then electronically. Your rebate will be deposited directly into your account typically within a few business days.
Cancellation policy
If you need to change your appointment for whatever reason, we will happily do so, provided you give us 24 hours’ notice. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, a cancellation fee may apply.
Mental Health Treatment Plan
A mental health treatment plan can be discussed and accessed through your GP or psychiatrist prior to your first counselling appointment. If you are eligible, you are entitled to 10 claimable sessions per calendar year under Medicare. The rebate amount you can claim under Medicare is $93.35 per session leaving only the gap for you to pay yourself. Our psychologist at CCP Psychology is a registered Medicare provider, meaning you can claim this rebate for psychology services, if you have the appropriate referral. Please bring a copy of your doctor’s referral and health care plan to your first appointment with us.
Private Health Insurance
If you don’t have a mental health plan and have private health insurance, depending on your cover, you may be eligible for a rebate as well, covering some of your cost for the session. Speak to your health insurer to see if you are eligible. No GP referral required.
If you do not have a mental health plan and are not covered under private health then you are a self-funded client. This means full session payment is payable by you.
