While you can easily make an appointment with a psychologist without a referral from a doctor, the most affordable way to see a psychologist is to visit your doctor and enquire about seeing a psychologist using a "Better Access Care Plan".
With a "Better Access Care Plan" you can receive up to 10 individual therapy sessions per calendar year with a Medicare rebate of $124.50.
Some private health funds also offer rebates for psychological services. It is best to check your entitlements with your private health fund first to avoid disappointment.
