No, it actually helps! We also provide limited outreach services for child assessment/therapy and supervision sessions for social welfare workers.

It is Birdwing Therapies policy for all clients and supervisees of the practice to give a minimum of 48 hours notice to reschedule or cancel a booked appointment. Please note that prospective and current clients may incur the full fee if this follow up does not occur within the required timeframe.

Professional Fees Schedule:

You may chooses to attend Birdwing Therapies as a full fee paying client or you might decide to discuss a referral under Better Access with your GP, Psychiatrist or  your Child’s Paediatrician or Adolescent Consultant.

Medicare rebates are available with prior consultation with your medical practitioner when a Mental Health Care Plan or Chronic Disease Management Plan has been completed prior to your initial consultation. Our systems can now process our clients’ Medicare rebates on site at the time of  a consultation! So no extra running around town is necessary if you would like this extra service.

Please fax or email us your doctor’s referral letter and Mental Health Care Plan or Chronic Disease Management Plan prior to your initial consultation with us. That way we can have everything ready for any applicable rebate to be processed at the time of your appointment.

We now provide ATAPS services via face to face, phone or Skype sessions. Please discuss the criteria with your doctor who will assess your eligibility for this program.
