Melbourne Centre for Women's Mental Health has a multidisciplinary team of health professionals who are able to offer TeleHealth consultations, delivering evidence based therapy and support straight to you in the comfort of your own home at a time that is convenient for you.
What should I expect? After the initial assessment session with a Senior Clinical Psychologist where we gather information about your history and the areas you would like help with, we then work collaboratively with you in a therapeutic framework that is most suitable. We treat a range of conditions including Anxiety and Panic, Eating Issues, Emotion Regulation difficulties, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal problems and more. Some types of therapies available online include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills Training (DBT Skills Training), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), interpersonal therapy and more. Whilst working with you, your psychologist can also refer you to our dietitian and other services if you feel it would be helpful. We provide these services to assist you to feel more confident, function better and have a better quality of life. We understand that each individual is unique and there can be challenges you face that are related to other contexts and conditions so we work with you to create the plan and refine it as we go making sure we continue to work toward your goals.
Who provides the TeleHealth service? The TeleHealth therapy is primarily delivered by Senior Clinical Psychologists Dr Sonja Skocic and Amanda Sloan. Our Senior Dietitian is also available for TeleHealth consultations. You can read more about them in the 'Staff Profiles' section.
How does it work? You will need a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop with internet connection. We are currently using Zoom videoconferencing, but can be flexible according to your needs and preferences. If using zoom, we will set up the meeting and send you an email with a link to join the meeting. Please ensure you are in a private, quiet room for 50+minutes so the session will have less likelihood of being interrupted.
How will I be billed? If you need to pay privately for your session with the psychologist or dietitian, you can pre-pay at the time of making the appointment using your credit card, or complete a credit card authorisation form if you prefer to pay after the session. We will send you a receipt via email so you can claim through Medicare or with your private health insurer. More information about fees and rebates is available in the 'Fees and Rebates' section.
