Lakeside Psychology provides Telehealth (online counselling) to help those who don’t have any help nearby, those who can’t attend a clinic, and those who want to access our services from around the country. You can now receive high quality psychological care at home via Skype on your phone, tablet or computer without having to attend a clinic.
Am I eligible for Telehealth (online counselling)?
Anyone can access online counselling and you don’t need a referral. However, you may be eligible to receive Medicare rebates for your sessions if you have a Mental Health Plan from your GP and live in a Telehealth eligible area. To see if you live in a Telehealth eligible area (i.e. Modified Monash Model areas 4-7), search the map here and select “Modified Monash Model 2015”.
What equipment do I need?
You simply need internet access via your phone, tablet or computer, and access to Skye which you can download for free. Otherwise, just find a quiet place where you won’ be interrupted during your sessions, and you’re set!
What is the cost?
