Not sure which one to choose?

If you are unsure which category you fit in to, then it's likely that you're making your first appointment without a GP referral. Do the following statements sound like you?

  • You live in Australia
  • You have a Medicare card
  • You haven't talked to your GP about seeing a psychologist
  • You want to book a therapy appointment and claim a rebate from Medicare

If you aren't bothered about claiming a rebate from Medicare, then you do not need a referral and you can just go ahead and book a psychologist now.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Mental Health Treatment Plan?

You don't need a Mental Health Treatment Plan to book your first session with a psychologist.

You will require it before your session, so you'll need to see you existing GP or a telehealth one.

How much does it cost?

Each psychologist sets their own price, which ranges from $150 to $250 per session.

From Medicare you'll receive a rebate of between $88 and $126 per session.

Can I use my existing referral?

Yes, if you already have a referral for another psychologist, then you can use this. You do not need to re-visit your gp.

Do I need to install an app?

No, you can simply connect to your session through your web browser.

Talked is very easy to use and really convenient to be able to book therapy sessions when they suit. There are so many therapists to choose from and the profiles make it easy to find the right one. It’s great to be able to send the therapists a message...

A great platform for counsellors and clients

by Karen

As a Registered Counsellor, I have been finding the Talked platform easy to use. The admin staff are very helpful and quick to respond to questions or problems. It is set up well, with everything in one place: therapist selection, appointment booking, messaging, payments etc. I highly recommend Talked for both counsellors and clients.

Fantastic staff, easy to use platform and easy to book

Excellent service

by Peter

Booking and payments process was super quick and smooth and I liked that the therapy video session was directly on the platform and they don't force you to download any additional apps. I'll definitely be coming back and would also recommend Talked to everyone else! Great service!
