Who Are We And Why Should You Consider Us For Your Mental Health Needs In Sydney

New Vision Psychology is a psychology practice that offers counselling services for a range of issues across Sydney NSW.

With psychologists who are fluent in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese, Bengali, Hindi, Afrikaans, Norwegian and Croatian, we are one of the few private practices who can offer you culturally-sensitive evidence based counselling.

New Vision Psychology has five convenient locations that service Sydney’s North Shore, Sydney CBD, Inner West, Northwest Sydney and Sydney South. We offer in-person sessions as well as online counselling.

Please note that New Vision Psychology is a private practice. As such we do not offer bulk-billed psychology services. However, many of our counselling services fall under the Better Access initiative where you can receive a Medicare subsidy for up to 10 sessions per calendar year as long as you have a Mental Health Care Plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

As a private practice, we do not offer bulk bill counselling (click here to read why). However, as our Sydney psychologists are registered and clinical psychologists, you will be able to claim a Medicare rebate as long as you have a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP).

What this means is that there will be a gap fee payable per session even if you have a Mental Health Care Plan.

After Medicare-subsidy, a general counselling session with one of our Sydney psychologists will cost $127.10 (i.e., Medicare will cover $92.90 of the total cost).

Give us a call on 1300 001 778 for more information.

All of our psychologists in our Sydney CBD, Castle Hill, Chatswood, Burwood and Hurstville practices are available for telehealth services (online counselling).

If you have been instructed to self-quarantine and require assistance, our psychologists can deliver support over the phone or via video conferencing.

Provisional psychologists are interns who are undergoing training and being supervised by fully registered psychologists. They have studied for 4 or 5 years, and require 1 or 2 more years of supervised practice, before they may receive their full registration from the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Provisional psychologists are not eligible to provide a Medicare rebate.

Registered or general psychologists have received their full registration from AHPRA. They have completed at least 6 years of studies and training. More than 60% of Australia’s psychologists are registered psychologists. Psychologists with a general registration apply their skills across a broad range of professional settings. They assess, diagnose and treat a wide range of clients and areas of concern. They also conduct psychological assessments and write psychological reports. They do not have an endorsement in a specific area of practice. Registered psychologists are eligible to provide a Medicare rebate of $92.90 per session under the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative.

Clinical psychologists have an endorsement in the area of clinical psychology. They have completed at least 8 years of studies and training. Clinical psychologists design and implement treatment strategies in clinical settings such as primary care, psychiatric and rehabilitation settings. In private practice, clinical and registered psychologists often do similar types of work. Clinical psychologists are eligible to provide a Medicare rebate of $136.35 per session under the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative.

At New Vision Psychology, all our psychologists are registered or clinical psychologists. They meet high standards in education, training, supervised practice, ethics and ongoing professional development. They are also able to provide Medicare rebates. Whether you’re seeing a clinical or registered psychologist, you should expect the same quality of care, ethical behaviour and standard of practice.

We encourage you to browse through our team to see if there is one that stands out for you.

We have clinical psychologists and registered psychologists who are fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese, Bengali, Hindi, Afrikaans, Norwegian and Croatian, so if you prefer to speak your mother tongue, you can!

Recommended: How to find the right therapist for you

All our psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia with many being members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS).

It is important that you feel comfortable with your psychologist, so it is 100% okay to change the psychologist you are seeing if it is not working.

We encourage you to provide us with feedback immediately, if you do not feel your psychologist understands your situation, or if you feel they are unable to help. Please call us on 1300 001 778.

You do not need a referral to see a child psychologist, however, if your child has a diagnosable mental health condition, they may be eligible to get a Medicare rebate with a GP Mental Health Care Plan.
