Seeing A Psychologist Via Skype

Did you know we’ve been working hard to bring Skype-based psychological services to our clients in rural and remote areas of Tasmania? Have you been one of the lucky people who’s had a Skype-based session with a member of our team? Did you also know we are looking at ways that we can support people in other sectors who might benefit from seeing a psychologist, but perhaps can’t get to our offices?

Some people are busy with work and can’t find time to get away. For others, the juggle of new parenthood makes it difficult … I remember back to when I was a new mum and how hard it was to get out of the house sometimes. We can offer psychological services to you under a number of flexible options. You can see us face to face in our Hobart or Launceston offices, or in one of our rural outreach locations. Or you can see us electronically via Skype. We can even speak to you by telephone. So have a think about what might work best for you and how we can help you achieve that.

We are in the process of updating our website, so if you go to, you’ll find links to our clinicians. So you can have a little squizz at who’s there, see what their qualifications and their special interest areas are. And then you can make the choice to see us face to face in our offices in Hobart or in Launceston or in one of our rural locations we have in Tasmania or you could opt to see us via Skype or Zoom.

How would it work? We would simply schedule you an appointment and we would either contract you at the appointed time via your Skype “handle” (Skype address I suppose), or we would email you a link to join us on Zoom (my personal favourite). We can take your payment at the same time via credit card, and if a rebate applies we can process that too. If you live in an eligible location (Launceston and surrounds and East Coast Tasmania) you might be eligible for our STPI program funded by Primary Health Tasmania (feel free to contact us and we can let you know if you are elgible).

The main thing is just to ask. If you need some assistance and think a member of our team can support you, just give us a call or make contact through the contact page on our website. We’ll be as flexible as we can, no matter where you are or what your situation.

Best wishes,
