What An NDIS Registered Psychologist Does
Our APHRA and NDIS registered Psychologist are skilled clinicians when it comes to supporting NDIS participants to cope with challenging situations, thoughts and emotions. Working with the participant and their carers, they can improve mental health and wellbeing, enhance self-understanding, and resolve identified concerns. It is difficult for anybody to deal with emotional distress, let alone throwing in physical, communication and/or cognitive difficulties.
Due to these complexities participants can feel isolated, misunderstood and frustrated; leading to further deterioration in mood; which may lead to expressing emotions in unhealthy ways.
The challenges faced by some NDIS participant is immense; therefore the experience and capabilities of the treating Psychologist can not be understated.
Our Psychologists understand that a band-aid approach doesn’t work long-term and prefer to take a person-centred approach. This involves getting to know the individual; enhancing trust and the depth of exploration possible.
Our Psychologists have been hand picked as the best in your local area; able to travel to within 60km of Albury-Wodonga and Wangaratta.
Offering assessments and reports as well as interventions (CBT, ACT, coping strategies etc.); the participant can be certain that they will receive a reputable and thorough service at My Care Provider.

Booking A Registered NDIS Psychologist
Once NDIS approved, most participants will work with an NDIS Planner and/or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to develop a support plan. Each participant develops an individualised plan that identifies the specific outcomes they wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports they require; often an occupational therapy assessment (click here) can aid in this process of identifying needs.
The NDIS is unique in that participants are now given choice and control over the supports that they receive. If funding for “Improved Daily Living” is included in the plan, then this usually means that Psychological assessment and intervention are covered. The next step is to speak with My Care Provider to book an appointment.
