If you obtain a referral from your GP also known as a Mental Health Care Plan you are entitled to receive 10 Medicare rebated sessions per annum. Once you have paid for your session, Tancredpsych will process your Medicare rebate online. You will receive a rebate of $88.25 which Medicare will automatically pay into your account.
Since August 2020 and the Covid Pandemic, Medicare will subside an additional 10 rebated psychological therapy sessions for those who have used their initial 10 sessions.
At present, our wait times are approximately one to two weeks.
When you book an appointment with Tancredpsych, you will initially receive an email confirming your appointment. A further email will be sent closer to the date of your appointment. Prior to the appointment you will also receive a two-way sms text reminder message on your mobile phone. You will be asked to respond with ‘Yes’ to confirm your appointment.
You have an opportunity to cancel or reschedule your appointment through both emails.
At Tancredpsych we ask that as soon as you know that you will need to cancel an appointment that you either do so via the email that is sent to you or phone the office and cancel. We require at least 24 hours’ notice when you cancel, or you may incur a cancellation fee.
As Psychologists we are bound by a Code of Ethics which requires us to keep what is discussed in session confidential. The limits of confidentiality will be discussed at the initial session.
I completed my Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) at Central Queensland University. I then undertook a 2 ½ year Psychology internship program to obtain the qualification of Registered Psychologist. Altogether, I trained for approx. 8 years.
