Back On Track Psychology was established to provide clients an easy access to quality and timely mental health solutions unique to their individual situation. Founded in 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to continue to support individual’s mental health during this challenging period. We provide telehealth consultation to suit our client’s location and time, bringing therapy outside of the traditional clinic model to a place where you feel most comfortable.
Back On Track Psychology was also inspired to provide quality mental health services to the wider community, including the cultural and linguistically diverse individuals. We are committed to provide psychology service using the language that you are comfortable with.

Our treatment approach is based on scientific evidence.
You can book an appointment yourself – no referral is needed. However, if you wish to claim rebates through Medicare you will need to make an appointment with your general practitioner, psychiatrist or paediatrician for a referral to a psychologist. Medicare will not accept your claim unless you have a valid Mental Health Care Plan from a general practitioner or have the relevant referral information from a psychiatrist or paediatrician.

We see patients of all ages, though clients under the age of 18 will require parental/ guardian consent at the time of booking.
Our standard 50-minute appointment is $215. Some clients will be eligible to claim a portion or all of their consultation fees directly from Medicare or their private health insurance (i.e. OSHC). Back On Track Psychology do not provide bulk billing service due to it’s limited capacity.

We understand that cancellations are sometimes necessary, but we do require 24 hours notice. This allows someone on what could be a long waiting list to fill your appointment.
We understand that sometimes you might be running late to your appointment. Significant reduction in the session length might resulted in a poor service experience. To ensure service quality, the session will be automatically cancelled if the client is more than 15 minutes late. Please note that the cancellation policy applies.
If you anticipated to be 15 minutes late to the session, please cancel and reschedule the appointment to a later date.
This could normally be resolved by refreshing the page. If your call drops out persist, the clinician will contact you by phone to discuss options for either continuing the assessment over the phone or arranging to reschedule. The clinician will problem-solve with you to find a suitable solution for that situation. You will not be charged for any calls that cannot be completed due to a technical failure.
The telehealth experience is in many ways similar to face-to-face appointments, including the same quality practice, professionalism, and etiquette. Both the clinician and client are expected to dress appropriatly, be on time for the appointment, and to treat each other with respect.
You can access your appointment anywhere. Most people see us from home, however any location where you can have a private and uninterrupted conversation is generally acceptable.
