27 Sep What can you expect from your NDIS psychologist?
Getting Started: NDIS with a Melbourne Psychologist
At Positive Wellbeing Psychology, our psychologists explore each individual’s needs and difficulties to help achieve NDIS goals. Our registered NDIS Psychologist understands a range of mental health and wellbeing barriers that impact daily living and life skills. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), participants may be able to access Capacity Building, Daily Activities – Improved Daily Living Skills – Therapeutic Supports, which includes Assessment, Recommendation, Therapy and/or Training (including AT) by a Psychologist (Support Item Reference Number: 15_054_0128_1_3).
At Positive Wellbeing Psychology, an NDIS psychologist help support participants under the NDIS to develop and maintain life skills, capacity building, independent living and increased participation within the local community. The support item (15_054_0128_1_3) is specifically designed to deliver progress or change for the participant. Therapy in this context must be aimed at adjustment, adaption and building capacity.
NDIS participants may benefit from a referral to a registered NDIS psychologist at Positive Wellbeing Psychology when identifying with the following barriers:
- Experience difficulty with learning and therefore not try new (community) activities
- Poor social skills and anxiety, therefore preventing the participant from leaving their house
- Making it hard to make progress and reach goals?
- Low mood paired with lack of motivation, therefore, leading to difficulty sticking to a routine
- Lack of routine and structure thereby impeding the participant’s mood, resulting in depression
- Exhibiting symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, thereby resulting in avoidant and withdrawal behaviours that subsequently prevent the participant from connecting to desired social and community activities
There are a number of mental health barriers that can make it challenging for the NDIS participant to make progress and reach their NDIS goals.
