What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national funding scheme by the Australian government that is designed to help individuals under the age of 65 with a permanent disability. The scheme entitles eligible participants to receive funding for reasonable and necessary supports related to their disability. For more information, please see: https://www.ndis.gov.au/
Do you see clients under NDIS?
Yes, I can see clients who have 'self-managed funding' or 'plan-managed funding'.
Participants who are self-managed pay for services upfront and then claim the funds back from NDIS. Participants who are plan-managed have a plan nominee who pays directly to the service provider and claims back the funds from NDIS on the participant's behalf. For more information regarding NDIS pricing, please see: https://www.ndis.gov.au/providers/price-guides-and-pricing.
Please note: I do NOT see clients who have 'NDIA-managed funding'.
Which types of services do you provide under NDIS?
Currently I provide the following services under NDIS:
Individual counselling and psychotherapy
Behaviour management and parent/family support
Assessments (if applicable)
Which age ranges do you see?
I see adults, adolescents, and children (10+ years old).
How are the sessions delivered?
The sessions can be delivered face-to-face or via Telehealth (phone or video consultations).
Do you do home visits?
No, I do not provide home visits for any services. If you are unable to leave your house due to your mental health or for any other reason, you may be interested in Telehealth (phone or video consultations) which is available.
What do I need to have for the initial consultation?
A copy of your NDIS plan
A referral from your GP if you would like them to be updated on your progress
A completed intake form and consent form (This will be sent to you prior to your first appointment)
Any relevant reports, such as previous reports from psychologists, paediatricians, etc. (if applicable)
