How Our Psychologists Can Help You


 

Our Toowoomba based psychologists provide a variety of services specifically designed to support the health and well-being of your mind and emotions. Originally established by Clinical Psychologist Dr Pamela Seaton in 2006, our practice has helped thousands of people of all ages and from all walks of life achieve better mental health and overall wellbeing.

The fast pace of daily life can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed and we often don't take the time we need to take care of ourselves. The psychologists at our practice can help you understand how your mind, behaviours and emotions interact while providing you with personalized strategies designed to improve your ability to more effectively navigate life’s ups and downs.

Every psychologist at our practice uses scientifically researched and evidence based assessment and therapeutic strategies coupled with empathy, compassion and courtesy.

Your psychologist will work in partnership with you and take the time to find which therapeutic approach will work best for your individual situation. There is no one size fits all formula for achieving better mental health, which is why having the guidance of an experienced psychologist can be so effective.

We understand that navigating the different funding pathways in order to access psychological services can sometimes seem daunting. Feel free to contact our Practice Manager if you wish to discuss our billing policy further.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing individualised support for people with permanent and significant disability. NDIS is the insurance that covers all Australians. As we all know, disability could affect anyone and having the right support makes a big difference. It offers people effected by permanent and significant disability choice in how they manage their individual situation. For more information about the NDIS their website can be found here.

 
 

Who is the NDIS for?

The NDIS is for all Australian’s under the age of 65 who live with permanent or significant disability. This means the person will most likely have the disability their whole life, affecting how they do everyday activities like making meals, having a shower, going to work or school. The NDIS is not available to everyone, everywhere in Australia. It will be made available around the country in stages. The NDIS website has useful information regarding the national rollout of the scheme.

 
 

What does the NDIS do?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) understands that everyone has different needs, aspirations and preferences. The NDIS provides eligible people with a flexible, whole-of-life approach to support them in the pursuit of their goals and help them participate in daily life.

  • NDIS provides information and referrals, such as links to services (such as a NDIS Psychologist) and activities, individualised plans and where necessary, supports over a lifetime.

  • They raise community awareness and encourage greater inclusion and access to mainstream services, community activities and provide other government initiatives.

  • They support service providers (such as a NDIS Psychologist) to build skill and capacity, and be part of the scheme.

  • Over time, they will develop new and better ways of providing support, by improving on what works well and seeking improvement from the lived experience of people with disability.
