Welcome to Uplift Psychological Services

Providers of Bulk Billed (free) Psychology


Uplift Psychological Services was established in 2007 to offer expert care at no cost (no gap) to those populations most in need. Our first office was in Redfern. We have expanded and now also have offices in Mascot, Edgecliff, and Liverpool.  There are more than 30 psychologists and we offer counselling in a number of different languages.

 

The secret of our succes is that we always offer the best and most compassionate of care, and our reputation continues to grow. We have helped and continue to help hundreds of people every week.

 

Medicare  covers up to 10 sessions of psychotherapy on referral from a general practitioner. The referral is initially for six sessions with a further four available upon review. In addition, 10 sessions of group therapy are available for groups of 6-10 people with similar issues.

 

Seeing a Psychologist is usually a rewarding experience - the things you have to speak about may be difficult, but the psychologist should help you feel as comfortable as possible. You only need say as much as you are comfortable with. Sometimes it may take a few weeks before you trust the psychologist enough to say more.

Psychologists don't prescribe drugs - we do the 'talking cure'.  Some psychologists give homework, some concentrate on the thoughts you have, others on understanding the way you feel. In any event, the process takes some time.


Psychologists usually see clients every week for a few weeks in a row.  You may not feel better straight away, sometimes people  may feel worse before they begin to feel better - it is important to persevere.  It is also important not to miss appointments. Sometimes the process is hard and your instinct may be to avoid the session. Sometimes you may feel the psychologist did not understand or may not be able to help. It is important to go to the session and discuss this with your psychologist.

Please call our friendly receptionists at any practice if you need to know any thing else
