When does a person know that they need Counselling?
Who is inclined to seek Counselling?
What will I get out of Counselling?
How many Counselling sessions will I need?
Can I claim the expense on Medicare or my private health fund?
Counselling and Psychotherapy are not currently covered under Medicare although there are many benefits of working with a Counsellor who is not registered with Medicare (read the benefits here). There may be some private health funds that offer a rebate for counselling consultations. I am a Medibank, Bupa, and ahm recognised provider. Members with private health cover may be entitled to a benefit. It would be wise to enquire with your health fund to see if you are eligible for a rebate.
