    Frequently asked questions

    Can I choose which psychologist I book with?

    Yes – we encourage you to read through the profiles of each of our team members to find the psychologist that has the most experience and expertise in the areas that you need. Whether you’re facing a specific concern, a life transition, or would feel more comfortable working with a psychologist who has specialised knowledge and experience in a one area, we’ll be sure to match you with the suitable team member. And if it’s not the right fit? No problem and no hard feelings – seeking professional support is a huge step, we’ll help you to find the right person for the job.

    Are Brisbane psychology services covered by insurance?

    Your psychology sessions in Brisbane may be partially covered by Medicare rebates or a private health fund. Check your private health cover for more details or speak to your GP about a Medicare Mental Health Care Plan. A Mental Health Care Plan will mean that you’re eligible for a significant Medicare rebate on your sessions. 

    How do I get a mental health care plan?

    By visiting your GP and requesting a mental health care plan. They will conduct an assessment on your concerns, current mental health, and the best course of action for what you’re going through. Based on the assessment, they may ask you to come back for a second visit, or they may provide the referral for a psychologist or mental health professional like CFHP. Once you’ve got the mental health care plan, you can send that referral to our intake team, and we can get you booked in for your first session. Mental health care plans will cover (subsidise) up to 10 individual or group sessions each calendar year. After the first six sessions, there will be a review of your MHCP wherein your psychologist can request that you have access to the remaining four sessions (for the calendar year).  

    What are your clinic hours?

    We are open six days a week (Monday to Saturday), with after work and evening appointments available. We are closed on Sundays and Public Holidays. In a crisis where you need immediate help, contact the following numbers:

    • Emergency Services: 000
    • Lifeline: 13 11 14
    • Beyond Blue: 1300 22 636.

    What happens in my first psychology session?

    Think of your first session with a psych as a ‘get to know you’ session, during which your psychologist will ask routine questions to understand what you need, clarify your goals, and suggest a plan of action. Sometimes, your goals may not be clear at the start – and that’s okay! Your therapist will guide and support you to figuring out what you want to achieve, and how you want to get there.

    Can I talk to a psychologist online if I’m not in Brisbane?

    Absolutely — whether you live just a little too far away or don’t have time to commute, our psychologists and therapists in Brisbane are just as helpful over an online counselling video call instead. 

    What happens if I want to change psychologists?

    We get it – sometimes you may not be on the same wavelength as your psychologist. At CFHP, we want to make sure that you get what you need out of your sessions, so we’ll always prioritise your needs; particularly if it gets to the stage where you no longer feel like your psychologist is the right fit. We’ll help you to find the psychologist that best suits your needs, ensuring the process of switching to a new psychologist or counsellor is as seamless as possible.
