COVID19 Update – Telephone and Videolink consultations – Due to the current social distancing guidelines, it is now recommended that psychology sessions are conducted via telephone or videolink. The Government, through Medicare, has introduced new guidelines which allows all clients with a Mental Health Care Plan to be bulk-billed (please note Simon Beal has always bulk-billed clients with a MHCP, so there is no change for existing or new clients).
Please see the information below regarding consultations via telephone and videolink. Simon’s approach is extremely well suited to either telephone or videolink, as much of what is discussed in consultations are the detailed and comprehensive strategies that parents/carers need to address the problems you and your family are experiencing. Simon has already been providing this service to rural clients, and this has proved very effective in dealing with the same issues, without meeting face-to-face. Please feel free to discuss any concerns with Simon.
All clients with a Mental Health Care Plan can contact the office on 8384 2222 to schedule an appointment. We will need a telephone contact number and email address to provide you with details of the appointment (videolink consults are easily established via an email link).
