How to make a referral

You can refer yourself to me at Fiona Woods Counselling and Therapy Services, by contacting your GP and asking to be assessed for a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) and referral. under Medicare's Better Access to Mental Health Program. This will enable me to provide you with from 6 to 10 sessions under that Plan. Internet services, like face-to-face services, are also funded under Medicare and are called 'Telehealth' sessions. They can be included under the same Plan.

You can also refer yourself to me without a MHCP, by telephoning me directly on the mobile number listed. This would enable a greater number of sessions, and attract a fee for service that is not under the Medicare fee structure.
