Accessing Therapy Online
You can make an appointment with Dr Ben Mullings online if you wish to access psychological services over the Internet – all you need is a webcam, a reliable computer, and a reasonable Internet connection. Often the easiest way to connect is via Skype using the webcam to see and speak in real time, much like a face to face conversation. It is also helpful to have a headset on stand-by for an audio call if the video drops out. Chat-based communication is also useful for those who are comfortable expressing themselves in writing.
The standard fee applies for all online consultations. Please note that Medicare does not provide a rebate for Skype or telephone consultations. Please check with your private health insurer if they cover consultations prior to booking an appointment. Payment for online services are made in advance.
If you wish to make a booking you can use the contact page. Please understand that appointment times will need to be negotiated around time differences and that additional information will be requested for duty of care. If you have any questions just ask.
Note: Online therapy services are not available for people living in North America.
