Psychologists work closely with clients to help them understand and manage their difficulties, behaviours and emotions, as well as to teach them healthy coping mechanisms. These coping skills are important for people with disabilities to help them live independently and thrive in their communities. They also support participants to reach their goals and aspirations in life.
Whether you need to work on behavioural issues, build your self-esteem or cultivate meaningful relationships, a MindCare Mental Health Services NDIS psychologist is here to help. Utilising personalised therapeutic paradigms and techniques, our psychology providers can help you overcome the challenges you face with compassion and empathy.

NDIS Psychologist Fees
If you are a registered psychologist who is part of an NDIS provider network, you can deliver supports to NDIS participants with the funding that is provided to you through your provider agreement. This is known as being ‘plan manager managed’. If you choose to be plan manager managed, your NDIS provider will pay your providers for you and help you to keep track of your funds.
Alternatively, you can self manage your NDIS plan. This means you can choose which providers to engage with and how much funding to allocate to each support. You can then submit invoices to your NDIS provider network for the support you have delivered. NDIS participants who are self managed should check the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits to find out what fees they can charge for their supports.
