How We Can Help...
Alpha Psychology prides itself on offering access to high quality psychological services at an affordable price.
Life is not always smooth sailing, and this can affect our emotions, our sense of wellbeing, our health, our work and our relationships. The good news is that one-on-one individual therapy can help both men and women develop new perspectives and life skills to break those destructive and disruptive patterns.
Relationships enrich our lives, but they can also be challenging and require a tune-up or sometimes a complete overhaul. Everyday stresses can strain and threaten your relationships with partners, parents and children, but effective therapy can restore the balance and break bad habits.
Group therapy is a rewarding and positive psychotherapeutic option for a range of issues. Groups may focus on a specific problem, or more generally on improving social and personal skills and problems. There are unique and significant benefits of sharing experiences, brainstorming ideas and talking and listening to others within a group setting.

Alpha Psychology is passionate about the community and making high quality psychological services affordable for everybody. We offer three payment streams. For clients with a Mental Health Care Plan from their GP we offer two payment options; in addition to full-fee rates we also offer concessional rates* for individuals who may be experiencing financial hardship. We are also a bulk billing practice for clients who meet our inclusion criteria. Depending on your level of cover, rebates through private health insurance may also be available.
Generally, you will not have to wait more than 6-8 weeks for an initial appointment, although if your diary is flexible and there is a cancellation, the wait time could be shorter.
Although you could see a psychologist as a private patient without a referral, you do need a Mental Health Care Plan to access the Medicare rebate. Medicare covers approximately two thirds of the session cost.
For a healthy, meaningful life, psychotherapy can benefit just about everyone, from those struggling with serious, debilitating issues to those people looking to simply fine tune their lives. Commonly, Alpha Psychology sees individuals and couples seeking support with concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, sexuality, anger, chronic pain, parenting and more.
A standard psychological consultation lasts for 50 minutes.
