NDIS Mental Health Therapist and Psychologist

NDIS Psychologist for Mental Health Support

The NDIS provides funding for individuals who have a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to perform daily activities. This can include individuals who experience mental health challenges that impact their daily functioning. Or it could also mean physical disabilities . To be eligible for NDIS funding for mental health support, you must meet certain criteria. These include:

  • Having a permanent and significant disability that affects your ability to perform daily activities
  • Having a diagnosis of a mental health condition that significantly impacts your life
  • Needing support from a mental health professional to manage your condition and improve your wellbeing

If you meet these criteria, you may be eligible for NDIS funding for mental health support. As a psychotherapist who works with NDIS clients, I am here to help you navigate the process and provide the support you need.

How NDIS Counselling Might Look

In working with NDIS clients, my primary goal is to help individuals to achieve their mental health and wellbeing goals. This means that I take a collaborative approach, working closely with each individual to identify their unique needs and develop a tailored treatment plan.

The first step in my process is to conduct an initial assessment, which involves gathering information about an individual’s mental health history, current symptoms, and goals for therapy. Based on this assessment, I will work with the individual to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals.

Once we have developed a treatment plan, we will begin regular therapy sessions. These sessions may be conducted in-person or online, depending on the individual’s preferences and needs. During each session, we will work together to explore the individual’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop strategies to help them manage any challenges they may be facing.

Throughout the therapy process, I am committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where individuals feel comfortable exploring their thoughts and feelings. I believe that trust and rapport are essential to successful therapy, and I work hard to build strong relationships with each of my clients.

Types of Psychotherapy I Offer

I am trained in a variety of evidence-based approaches to therapy. I believe that different individuals may benefit from different types of therapy, and I am committed to using the approach that is best suited to each individual’s needs and goals. The predominant therapy I use, is somatic psychotherapy, which gets to the heart of the matter fast. 

My Approach

As a psychotherapist who works with NDIS clients, my approach is grounded in a deep respect for each individual’s unique needs and circumstances. I believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, and I am committed to helping each individual I work with to achieve their full potential.

I also recognize that individuals who are on the NDIS may face additional challenges in accessing mental health services. That’s why I am committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all individuals, regardless of their background, culture, or abilities. I believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality mental health care, and I am dedicated to providing that care to my clients.

If you are an individual who is on the NDIS and is seeking support for your mental health and wellbeing, I am here to help. My approach is client-centered and evidence-based, meaning that I will work closely with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that is best suited to your needs and goals.
