Our vision at Thinkahead is to unlock a child’s true potential and work with families to build on their child’s strength and remedy their weaknesses.  We tailor our assessment process to your child and family’s circumstances.  We incorporate where possible, feedback from parents, teachers and the young person’s self to obtain a comprehensive overview.  Our multidisciplinary approach ensures we consider all aspects when making complex diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Global Developmental Delay.

Our fees include review of previous medical reports, consultation/interviews with relevant third parties such as Daycare Centres, Schools, Pediatricians, GP’s etc in order to obtain a comprehensive history of the child/adolescent to assist in formulating a clinical diagnoses.



Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment of eligible mental health conditions.  You will be able to claim a proportion of your fees from Medicare if your doctor assesses you to be eligible for psychological services under Medicare, and if you have a referral and a Mental Health Care Plan.  If you are eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan, Medicare will reimburse a minimum of $93.35 per session for up to 10 sessions per calendar year.

Alternatively, a proportion of your fees may be redeemable from your private health insurance, depending on your health cover.

If you have private health insurance or want to partially claim the Medicare Rebate Fee then please bring with you your medicare card as you will be able to claim part of the consultation at our office.
