Rebecca Bennett

Provisional Psychologist

Hi, I’m Rebecca - a disabled, neurodivergent, queer woman. I work with ADHD and Autistic adults + teens exploring their neurodivergent identity and working towards self-acceptance and self-compassion.

 

I also love working with other disabled people to help them navigate the able-bodied world; so if you are learning to navigate your neurodivergence, chronic illness, disability, trauma or mental health struggles, I would love to work with you.

Some of the things that make me 'me':

Other people may describe me as:

By the time we finish working together

I want you to have:

  • Skills to manage anxiety and trauma triggers

  • The ability to set boundaries around your needs without feeling guilty

  • Confidence in asking for what you need!

Fees

  • The standard consultation fee for a 50-minute appointment with Bec is $170. This applies to all clients, including privately paying clients and NDIS clients who are self-managed.

  • Fees for NDIS plan-managed clients are as per the NDIS price guide in your state for psychologists.

  • ​No Medicare or health fund rebates are available for appointments with provisional psychologists.

  • You can read our Fees and Rebates page for more information.

Appointments

  • Bec works with us on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

  • Bec's therapy wait list is estimated to be around 4 to 6 months. This is only a rough estimate, as our waitlists can be quite fluid, and sometimes there is movement, which means we might have unexpected appointments that pop up earlier than this.

What happens now?

 

  • After you get in touch, our dedicated admin team will send you our brief 'waitlist and matching intake form'. This form is designed to gather basic information about your needs to make sure we can offer you the service you need. This form also helps us match you with a clinician who has the skills and experience to meet your needs.

  • Once we are able to offer you an appointment, we will send you a second intake form. This form goes into greater detail and aims to gather more specific information about your history and current situation to enable your allocated clinician to better prepare for your appointment.

  • As part of the second intake form, we also request your credit card, debit card, or Paypal details. Rest assured that we take card security seriously, and your details are stored securely on our client management system, Halaxy. This security measure helps us prevent theft and fraud. No one at Very Helpful Chats will have access to your card details. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the security of your card details, we encourage you to read more about Halaxy's card security here: Halaxy Card Security FAQs
