What Can I Get Assistance For?
With a referral from your Medical Practitioner, you can receive a rebate from Medicare for assistance with Depression and other Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Relationship Problems, Adjustment Issues, Family Conflicts, Personality Disorders, Life Crisis, Trauma.
If you are seeking help with drug, alcohol or are remaining in a family violence situation, I do not have expertise in these areas.
Getting The Medicare Rebate
Make an appointment with your Medical Practitioner and tell the Receptionist you need an appointment to get a referral for counselling (they need to book a longer session with your Medical Practitioner). Your Medical Practitioner can either fax the referral to 02 6013 9646.
You may choose to take the referral when you see your Medical Practitioner. Your referral needs to be available to Dr Rhonda Emonson at least 3 days prior to your first session. Each person attending will need their own referral.
How does it work and how much does it cost?
Dr Rhonda Emonson will be providing each of the sessions and is very experienced, qualified and compassionate - sessions are usually held on a fortnightly basis. Each person attending needs to have their own referral if they are wanting a rebate from Medicare although a referral is not necessary. Three separate 90-minute sessions are provided and a check-up two months after the last session, although the pattern of sessions may alter to meet client needs.
We may also take a PR6 profile to form a platform for our sessions.
