NDIS At The Anna Centre

The complexities of the NDIS are many. Therefore, we wanted to share with you that NDIS participants, without a mental health plan (to see a psychologist), can access our counsellors through their NDIS plan.

In fact, because psychology is not often funded through NDIS, using the Counselling line item can mean quicker and more straight forward approvals (through NDIS) for you/your client. The Counselling line item in the NDIS price list is also lower than the Psychology line item and delivers more than ‘capacity building’, see below.

NDIS participants who have access to the necessary funding can seek counselling services to:

  • Facilitate self-knowledge


  • Emotional acceptance and growth


  • Gain greater insight into their lives


  • Help the participant work towards their personal goals


  • Optimal development of personal resources



If you /your client could benefit from seeing one of our counsellors, simply fill out the form on this page or give The Anna Centre a call on 03 5442 5066 or email us at [email protected] and our friendly admin staff will make a booking for your client with a counsellor that suits.
