Workers Compensation

As a Tier 1 provider a Psychologist does not require you to have a referral nor prior approval. Your Psychologist will complete an allied health recovery request (AHRR) with you to support your recovery and treatment. Click Here

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.

Autism & Other Disabilities

Medicare rebates for allied health services exist under the Helping Children with Autism Program and The Better Start for Children with Disability Program.   A child under 13 years of age can receive four assessment sessions and a child under 15 years, twenty treatment sessions where the treatment and management plan is put in place before the 13th birthday.  Either a paediatrician or eligible consultant psychiatrist may refer to allied health professionals here at Learning Curves Psychological Consultancy.  To obtain information on rebates in the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for the early diagnosis and treatment of children with autism and for disabilities under the Better Start for Children with Disability Program call the Department of Human Services on 1320111 or talk with your GP.
