Can someone.health be used as a substitute for face-to-face therapy?

Just like face-to-face psychologists, our Registered Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA), listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and individually approved by someone.health.

Telehealth, or online, psychology services have similar benefits to face-to-face therapy. As sessions are run online, telehealth psychology may not fulfill every expectation you might have of a face-to-face psychology session.

However, the ease of access, accessibility, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of psychology services digitally helps Australians overcome accessibility barriers such as time, geography and finances. This allows you to focus on getting help for your mental health needs, which is the priority of any psychologist.
