Clinical Psychology Services

How can a Resolve Clinical Psychologist help you?

Clinical Psychologists at Resolve have specialised training in the diagnosis and management of mental health conditions, and in the delivery of a range of research-based techniques and therapies aimed at treating mental health disorders. We are specialists in applying psychological theory and scientific research to solve complex clinical psychology problems requiring individually tailored interventions. We provide a range of psychological services to individuals across the lifespan and for mental health conditions that range from mild to complex.

At Resolve, we have developed expertise in specific areas, and practice in sub-specialisations of clinical psychology, including Eating Disorders. We work closely with our Dietitian, who also specialises in eating and weight related disorders.

Clinical Psychologists at Resolve have obtained postgraduate university qualifications in Clinical Psychology and have studied at University for six or more years. We are registered with both the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Australian Psychological Society (APS). This means that we must follow a strict Code of Conduct and Ethical Guidelines, as well as engage in ongoing professional development.

In addition to professional practice, Clinical Psychologists at Resolve have experience in research, teaching and supervision, program development and evaluation, public policy and other activities that promote psychological health in individuals, families, groups, and organisations.

Psychological therapy is aimed at helping you to identify and modify previously unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving. At Resolve, we aim to give you the self-confidence and the necessary skills to cope better in the future.

Medicare Rebates

If you have been referred by a GP or Psychiatrist who has prepared a Mental Health Treatment Plan for your condition, you are eligible for a Medicare rebate of about $125.00. This is valid for up to ten sessions within a calendar year. This means that there is a gap payment of approximately $45.00, per fifty minute session, after the Medicare rebate. You must obtain the referral letter before the first therapy session and bring it with you to your first appointment.

Private Health Rebates

Rebates are also available for individuals with private health cover. Please contact your policy provider for specific rebate amounts, as they vary according to your level of cover. You cannot claim a private health fund rebate in addition to claiming a Medicare rebate for a session.


Our cancellation policy revolves around the fact that the scheduled appointment time is reserved for you only. If an appointment is missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged a $120 cancellation fee. These fees cannot be claimed through Medicare or private health cover.
