Psychologist Appointments

Make an Appointment with our Psychologist

 

Our psychologist-led psychological treatment helps children as they strive for positive wellbeing. Here’s how to make an appointment with her. Currently our Psychologist only sees children 12 years and under for therapy. She sees both adults and children for assessments.

Step 1: GP Mental Health Plan or Referral letter

You will need a Mental Health Treatment Plan from a GP or a referral letter from a Psychiatrist to be eligible for Medicare rebates. 

Referral is not needed for assessments but desirable to get a letter or reason for referral from referring practitioner.

Step 2: Book an Appointment

To book an appointment, please contact us at 02 7202 7747 or email us with the following details:

 

  • The patient's name

  • Your name (if you are not the patient)

  • Preferred appointment date and time (please provide a couple of options)

  • GP Mental Health Treatment Plan or referral from a Psychiatrist. Your practitioner can send the referral directly to us electronically on Healthlink (ID: dolphint).

Step 3: First Appointment

Bringing support

 

We recommend both parents attend the appointment with a referred child or adolescent, even if they do not both live with the child. If this is not possible, at least one parent or carer is expected to attend.

 

For adult appointments, partners are encouraged to attend.

Please do not bring any children requiring supervision to the appointment. We do not offer supervision.
