Telehealth Psychology Appointments during COVID-19
We are mindful that this is a stressful time.
Positive Mind Works is available to support your wellbeing and mental health as we always have done via telehealth appointments.
As a telehealth only service, we are well placed to help you cope with mental health related issues during the COVID-19 pandemic. Being an online only service, we are able to completely eliminate the risk associated with travel and in-person psychology appointments by seeing one of our online psychologists.
How it works
Telehealth services allow you to receive online counselling from your psychologist via secure video conference, with the session taking place ‘virtually’ over video and voice – just like face-to-face, but digitally instead! This means, that from the comfort of your own home or other desired private place, you will be able to see and speak with the psychologist as if you were sitting in front of them in an office.
Seeking Support during COVID-19 Pandemic
If you feel that the anxiety or stress that you are experiencing due to COVID-19 is becoming too much, a mental health profession may be able to help.
Psychologists are qualified professionals in the field of mental health who are trained to deliver effective interventions for a variety of issues, including stress, anxiety and depression. They can help you manage your concerns by using evidence-based techniques to allow you to get back to living your best life.
You may be entitled to a Medicare rebate if you are living in Australia and your doctor refers you to a psychologist. For further information on eligibility, please ask our friendly reception team or speak with your GP. Please note that you are able to access a psychology appointment without a GP referral, however no Medicare rebate will be issued.
