What We Do

FUNDED & FEE FOR SERVICE WORK

Ripples Allied Health Consultancy aims to tailor programs and intervention services to meet the needs of individuals. Apart from treatment provided under Victims Services and Workcover, most services may have a gap, or may require a thorough quote prior to initiation of services. Patients who are on a pension, have a health care card, or experiencing financial hardship will be eligible for bulk billed services. 
 
Prior to your first appointment it is helpful for you to complete intake form and some psychometric assessments to ensure that your treating practitioner is clear on your background and support needs. These assessments are scored and kept on file to inform treatment. Psychometric assessment results are not written up in reports unless there is a formal request made by you. The reports are an extra service completed only after you have agreed to the quote provided. Click to the right on the relevant pamphlets and intake forms.
