At Learning curves we can see you for counselling under WorkCover, upon referral from your General Practitioner and approval from the Insurer. When you lodge your claim, an initial 6 sessions are requested from the insurer. If these are approved, Learning Curves can see you for these 6 sessions, after which time we prepare a Treatment Plan and request further sessions if necessary.
Employee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program provides an opportunity for your staff to consult with experienced psychologists in welcoming and confidential surroundings. Such a program demonstrates clear recognition of the impact that workplace and personal stressors have on the productivity of both the individual employee and the broader team, as well as on the interface of employees and customers. Learning Curves offers an Employee Assistance Program tailored to meet the needs of your individual organisation.
Victims of Crime
Becoming a victim of crime is an unexpected and distressing life event. It is normal to have strong reactions but when reactions last longer than normal and interfere with your life, counselling can help. Free approved counselling sessions by Robert M Curtis from Learning Curves Psychological Consultancy can be accessed through the Victims Services website.
