FAQ Psychology For Children

We are considered in-network for approximately 20 insurance plans, including PHCS, Unicare, Corphealth, and Texas True Choice. We continue to work hard to get our providers on most major plans. If you need assistance in checking your benefits with your particular insurance plan, please feel free to contact us.

For those whose plans consider us out-of-network or who do not have coverage for mental health treatment, we offer fee-for-service treatment.

We accept cash, personal check, and major credit or debit cards (MasterCard, VISA, and American Express).

At Austin Psychiatric Consultants, it is our philosophy that medication is a facet of mental health treatment, but it is not typically sufficient on its own. For that reason, we offer medication treatment only in conjunction with therapy and other psychological services offered by our professional staff.

Children often have a very difficult time articulating themselves. Because they are without the life experiences of adults and often don’t have the knowledge of how to process confusing and overwhelming emotions, we find that play therapy is frequently the most successful method for them.

By utilizing children’s natural ability to express themselves through play, acting out their experiences and fears in a safe environment, we can help them communicate and work through issues at their own pace. By observing and guiding play, we can help children find healthy resolutions and build strong methods to cope with life’s problems.

Online Counselling

29 Jan

Our Mission

Online counseling 

Online counselling is a convenient way for you to access psychological therapy without needing to travel to appointments. You can access online any of our qualified and experienced psychologists using Skype technology. Your online appointment will be conducted just like a face-to-face session where you will be able to see, hear and interact with your psychologist during the session.

All our online counselors are registered psychologists who currently see a mixture of both face-to-face and online clients.

Telephone counselling services

Darebin Psychology provides phone counselling services for those who prefer the convenience of receiving counselling from the comfort of their home. After booking your appointment, a call is established at the scheduled time and you will receive the same support and counselling as you would if you were in the room with your psychologist.

Common psychological issues such as depression, worry, anxiety, stress, grief, life direction, relationship issues, pain management and anger management are all suitable for online or phone counselling.

Online or telephone counselling: Important factors to consider

  • Online or telephone counselling are NOT SUITABLE for those who are at risk of suicide, in acute crisis, or have serious mental health issues.There are limits to what a counselor can do remotely. In such cases, your GP is always your first port of call.
  • Couple counselling is  NOT  generally offered online or by phone.
  • Online or telephone counselling services are NOT eligible for Medicare rebates and clients are expected to cover the full fee prior to the session ( please see our fee schedule)

Requirements for online counselling:

  • You need a high-speed broadband connection, a webcam and microphone on your device. Please make sure you have a good internet connection for counselling to take place. If one of you is only seeing the other’s face in pixelated form, counselling online will be a struggle.
  • You have to ensure you can be online at the appointed time, in a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted or overheard.

 

We can get you started today.
