NEST’s team of experienced Psychologists, together with our Psychiatrists and Mental Health Nurses, are dedicated to the enhancement of the emotional wellness of our patients.

NEST has a number of highly skilled sessional Psychologists offering a range of therapeutic services from our NEST clinic, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Therapy and Supportive Psychotherapy. Many of our Psychologists also have specific training in Family, Couples and Group Therapy, and some have particular interest and experience in Child Psychology.

At NEST, we develop strong and working relationships across disciplines to achieve the best outcomes for our patients. As such, when the need arises, our Psychologists can work collaboratively with our Psychiatrists. 

Patients are required to pay a fee for Psychology consultations, which will vary according to the duration of the appointment. All NEST Psychologists are Clinical Pychologists, which means patients receive the maximum Medicare rebate available provided they have a ‘Mental Health Care Plan’ referral from their GP. The Medicare rebate is currently accessible for up to 10 individual psychology sessions and 10 group therapy sessions per calendar year. 

Contact us for more information about NEST Psychology services and fees, or to make an appointment. We strongly recommend you seek a referral from your GP in the form of a ‘Mental Health Care Plan’ beforehand to maximise Medicare benefits. We also welcome patients to make an appointment with a NEST GP to arrange a Psychology referral.
