Overwhelmed? Anxious or sad and don’t know where to turn to ?

A psychologist can help support you and offer you guidance through life’s challenges

About Maria Tancred

Registered Psychologist | BPsych (Hons). MAPS

My therapy approach is client centred. I offer support and acceptance, whether you are going through anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, grief and loss, a difficult relationship or feel ‘stuck’. My aim is to empower you to overcome your personal obstacles.

I am passionate about assisting you through your healing and growth. I will tailor my approach and interventions to suit your needs.

Book an appointment online or alternatively call me today on 0413446981 to discuss your concerns.

My Credentials

In 2005 I obtained my Bachelor of Psychology (Hons). To become registered as a Psychologist I had to then complete an intensive 2 ½ year post graduate Psychology internship program. I have worked with a wide range of client presentations across the lifespan.

Who I am today

I have experienced several major life challenges and feel I have emerged from ‘the other side’ as a deeper, mature and more loving person. I truly believe that I cannot help people unless I’ve done my own personal work and continue to do so.

My life experience as well as my experience as a practitioner, has helped many others and I believe I can help you as well.

Standard Consultation (60 minutes) | $140

Concession (60 minutes) | $110

Rebate – Medicare (Bulk Billing)

Your GP can provide you with a GP Mental Health Care Plan which entitles you to an initial 6 sessions with a rebate of $84.80. The rebate applies to both the standard and concessional fees. Under the GP Mental Health Care Plan it may be possible to have up to 10 rebated sessions per year.

Rebate – Private Health

For those clients who choose to use private health cover, your health insurer may offer a rebate for psychological consultations under their ‘Extras’ provision. The level of cover varies between funds so it may be best to ask your health insurer about your cover. It is important to note that if you are utilising a Medicare rebate, your private health insurer is unable, by legislation, to cover any gap payment.
