Logic Lounge Psychology provides Telehealth psychological services to individuals or couples. We have a number of Psychologists throughout our various clinic locations that are able to provide telehealth treatment.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth refers to a video conference consultation involving communication between you and your clinician using both a video and audio connection.
How many treatment sessions can be accessed?
If you are eligible for telehealth psychological services, you can receive up to 10 telehealth sessions with a mental health professional per calendar year
What equipment do you need to access the service?
You will need access to a quiet, private space; a device, i.e. smartphone, laptop, iPad, computer, with a camera, microphone and speakers; and a reliable broadband internet connection. If you don’t have the necessary equipment it may be possible to access telehealth equipment through your GP or local community centre.
Is a telehealth consultation as effective as a face-to-face consultation?
Psychological treatment provided using videoconferencing technology has been found to be as effective as a face-to-face appointment for a variety of mental health problems. Your GP and mental health provider will talk to you about whether telehealth consultations are appropriate and suitable for you.
I am already travelling a long distance to see a mental health provider (face-to-face) under Medicare. Can I transfer to a telehealth service with them?
