You do not need a referral to see a psychologist, however if you wish to obtain a Medicare rebate, you can visit your GP or specialist paediatrician or psychiatrist to obtain an eligible Mental Health Care Plan.
Claiming through private health insurance generally does not require a referral, however you will need to confirm the conditions around private health claims for your particular policy with your private health insurer. To make an appointment, please phone the clinic on 0408655157 or email the clinic.
Our clinic is within close reach to the lower and upper North Shore and Inner West of Sydney as well as being close to link roads across the bridge to the Eastern Suburbs. We are located at Suite B, 161 Burns Bay Rd, Lane Cove, in a small building of office suites situated behind the main row of shops. You will see a sign located near the footpath out the front with “The Young Mind Clinic” written on it out the front of 161 Burns Bay Rd. We are in the back building (behind the bike shop), down Charlish Lane, adjacent to the IGA. There is a flight of stairs going up the outside of this building and our door is the first on the right. You will see signing on the window, so you will know you are in the right place.
There is ample free parking (mostly with a 2 hour time limit) on the streets surrounding us including Burns Bay Rd itself, as well as Fig Tree St and Ross Smith Pde. Please do not park in the IGA carpark as this is for their customers only.
