I am registered to provide services under Medicare, DVA and the NDIS. I am also happy to see people as private clients without referrals who may wish to access rebates through their private health insurance, or who may wish to pay full fee.
I use a number of different therapy techniques, depending on the client and their presenting concerns. I have a particular interest in Positive Psychology, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness. If you have any queries about this aspect of my services, feel free to contact me.
I am currently completing a PhD that is exploring the benefits of mental health digital mobile applications for smartphones and tablet devices. This research is ongoing, but has already resulted in eight publications including the following two:
Marshall, J. M., Dunstan, D. A., and Bartik, W. (in press). Clinical or gimmickal: The use and effectiveness of mobile mental health apps for treating anxiety and depression. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry. doi: 10.1177/0004867419876700
Marshall, J. M., Dunstan, D. A., and Bartik, W. (in press). Smartphone psychology: New approaches towards safe and efficacious mobile mental health apps. Professional Psychology: Research and Practice.
I also like to facilitate and work with groups for both adults and young people. In the past, I have co-ordinated group programs related to autism, anxiety, and depression.
I am a Psychology Board-Approved Supervisor, and I welcome enquiries from provisional psychologists about supervision.
I am a full member of the Australian Psychological Society, and a Fellow of the Clinical College of the Australian Psychological Society.
I am a contracted Clinical Reference Lead for the Australian Digital Health Agency.
My areas of interest and experience
I am registered to provide services under Medicare, DVA and the NDIS. I am also happy to see people as private clients without referrals who may wish to access rebates through their private health insurance, or who may wish to pay full fee. You can find out more about my fees here.
The most affordable way for private clients to access our clinical psychology services is by getting a referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan from either a GP, Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician. This will allow individuals to claim a generous rebate through Medicare.
Fees for services under Medicare are as follows:
• Online 50-minute individual session with Jamie Marshall, Clinical Psychologist: $225.The Medicare rebate is currently $128.40. Clients will therefore be out-of-pocket (i.e. have a gap fee) $96.60.
• Online 30-minute individual session with Jamie Marshall, Clinical Psychologist: $145.The Medicare rebate is currently $87.45. Clients will therefore be out-of-pocket (i.e. have a gap fee) $57.55.
PLEASE NOTE: MEDICARE REBATES FOR ONLINE / TELEHEALTH SERVICES WITH A PSYCHOLOGIST ARE CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN CERTAIN REGIONAL AREAS. To check if your area is eligible, and to find out further information about Medicare, please contact us, or visit: https://www1.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/mental-ba-telehealth
We are a registered NDIS provider.
All fees for NDIS participants are at $214 per session / hour.
If you have any queries about NDIS funding, please contact us, or visit: https://www.ndis.gov.au/understanding/how-ndis-works/mental-health-and-ndis
All clinical psychology services for clients referred under DVA are free of charge to the individual, with all costs being covered by the DVA. For more details, please contact us, or visit: https://www.dva.gov.au/factsheet-hsv99-mental-health-support-services.
If you have private health insurance, you may be entitled to rebates for psychological therapy. Health insurance will often provide rebates of up to half of the total session fee. However, all health insurance providers are different, so clients are encouraged to contact their health insurance provider for more information.
For individuals and organisations who wish to access our clinical psychology services privately, all services are charged at $225 per hour. (This is less than the rate recommended by the Australian Psychological Society, currently at $260.) This rate includes all online / telehealth counselling, report writing, group or supervision facilitation, and travel.
Under Medicare, for most presenting concerns the maximum number of sessions that attract a rebate in a calendar year is ten. For eating disorders, the amount of sessions is 40.
In some circumstances, individuals may also be eligible for an additional Allied Health / Primary Health Care Plan that may allow them to access a further five sessions in a calendar year, but this attracts a larger out-of-pocket fee. Individuals are advised to speak to their GP for more details.
For those registered with the NDIS, the number of sessions allowable will depend on your funding plan. This will vary from person to person according to each individual’s needs and goals. This will be discussed when we meet you for the first time. For more information, please speak to your NDIS Plan Manager.
For those registered with the DVA, the number of sessions allowable will vary from person to person, depending on need.
For those registered with a WorkCover insurer, the number of sessions allowable will vary from person to person, but are usually only approved in maximum amounts of eight sessions. For more information, please speak to your case manager.
In the case of private health insurance, the number of allowable sessions is often only up to 5 in a calendar year, but again, individuals are asked to contact their insurer for further details.
OR, for further information on any of the above, please contact me.
