We encourage you to take the time to read our psychologist’s profiles and select a psychologist that suits your individual needs. We recognise that finding a psychologist that is a good fit isn’t an exact science. You can rest assured that if you complete an initial assessment with one of our Mornington psychologists and either of you feel it’s not the most suitable match of needs and skills you will be linked in with an appropriate psychologist for treatment.
You will be asked some questions when making your booking, these questions are designed to help us get a brief understanding of your needs so we can ensure that you have booked with a psychologist with experience in your area of need, if this is not the case we will contact you and help you to book in with someone who we believe should be able to better meet your needs.
All initial consultations are 65 minutes. Please plan to arrive at the practice 10 minutes before your first appointment so you can complete some paperwork before your session begins. It will also give you some time to settle in and make a cup of tea or coffee before your session begins.

All consultations have an out of pocket cost. Appointment fees vary depending on the type and length of consultations.

Non-attendance or cancellation at short notice (less than 48 hours) will incur a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the consultation fee. Unfortunately cancellation fees are not eligible for Medicare rebate.
