Psychologists offer a range of professional services to help provide psychological treatment, administering and interpreting psychological assessment and testing, developing prevention programs and consulting. They can work individually or together with couples, families, or groups.
How we can help?

- Parenting support
- Well-being and quality of life
The Australian Psychological Society recommend consultation fees set to $251 for a 50 minute session. Here at Mills Chiropractic and Healthcare, we are offering a much lower price ($135) for each treatment session. Patients/clients with a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) or Better Access for Mental Health (BAMH) plan are eligible for a rebate of $87.45 per session up to 10 session per calendar year. You can also contact your private health insurance provider for information about their coverage.
How to get a referral letter from my GP/Paediatrician/Psychiatrist?
If you are experiencing psychological distress or any kind of mental health issues, you can go to your GP/Paediatrician/Psychiatrist for a referral to our psychologist service. No diagnosis is needed to get psychologist service. Your GP need to prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) for the referral. You can check with the GP clinic to see if a longer session is needed to enable the preparation of the treatment plan. With MHTP or BAMH, you will be eligible for rebates for 6 sessions (see previous section); if more sessions are needed, your psychologist will send a letter to your referring practitioner to request 4 more sessions.
