Access more affordable sessions with Medicare rebates

Under the Better Access Initiative, eligible individuals are able to access specific psychological services and receive a Medicare rebate. This rebate is designed to allow more people within the community to access psychological assistance when in need.


Work with us

Located in the heart of Canberra, Strategic Psychology is a private practice centered around providing the highest quality of therapy and client care. Established in 2009, Strategic Psychology is now home to 27 brand new purpose-built consulting rooms, a large ‘Marshmallow Room’ (our breakout room named after the Marshmallow experiment), and a warm and comfortable waiting area for clients. 

Our motto is ‘Good People Looking After Good People’. We are a forward-thinking, innovative, and enthusiastic group who think about the little things in therapy, which add up to big differences for our clients.
