Some Common Questions About Online Psychologists Australia
Are There Online Psychologists in Australia?
Yes! Online psychologists in Australia exist and they are a great resource for anyone who would normally benefit from a normal face-to-face visit with a therapist. These virtual therapy sessions involve a certified and licenced therapist offering psychological advice and support via live video sessions, voice and video messaging, and online messaging.
Does Online Therapy Really Work?
Research consistently shows that online therapy is very effective for many mental health issues.
Also, online therapy has some benefits over traditional face-to-face counselling:
- Those with anxiety, especially social anxiety, are more likely to consider online therapy.
- It can be easier for some people to reveal private information when they’re sharing it online.
- There’s no worrying about seeing people you know in the waiting room.
- Scheduling appointments is usually more convenient.
- Most online therapy sessions cost less than face-to-face sessions.
- Individuals with transport difficulties or who live in rural areas can have easier access.
What Can Online Psychologists or Counsellors Help With?
In Mind Therapy’s online psychologists Australia and counsellors see people for a variety of reasons including but not limited to marital and family problems, illness or injury, grief, stress, anxiety, trauma, loneliness, depression, psychological aspects of medical illnesses, behavioural problems, disturbances in eating and sleeping, sexual issues, difficulties at work, and caring for the elderly. In short, if difficult thoughts, feelings, or behaviours are impacting your quality of life, you may benefit from working with an online psychologist or counsellor.
What’s It Like To See an Online Psychologist or Counsellor?
Feeling anxious about meeting with a therapist for the first time is normal. Your therapist will discuss their specific approach with you in more detail, and what to expect from sessions with them. It may take more than one session before you feel comfortable enough to open up about everything you would like to address, or you may feel better even after your first session. If you don’t click with the first therapist you meet, it is perfectly acceptable (and even recommended) to “shop around” until you find an online psychologist Australia or counsellor who you feel will work for you.
Are Online Psychologists Covered by Medicare?
With a mental health care plan from your doctor you will receive a rebate for sessions with a psychologist. A mental health care plan provides you with up to 10 sessions of psychotherapy per year with a Medicare rebate. There may still be a ‘gap fee’ to pay, depending on your situation. A mental health care plan can be obtained via an appointment with your GP.
