In your first session, you can align your regular schedule with your psychologist and book ahead. If your psychologist has flexibility they can also book you in outside their listed availability.
Finding a psychologist you connect with and can grow with is a part of the process and it can feel like a big decision.

All practitioners on the My Mirror team are psychologists.
In Australia, Psychology is a restricted title and registered profession protected by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). All psychologists in Australia hold general registration with the Psychology Board of Australia, meeting high standards in education, training, supervised practice, ethical and professional standards, and ongoing professional development.
Psychotherapists and Counsellors are not legally regulated titles in Australia. However, they are professionally regulated by their accrediting associations, the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA).
All psychologists in Australia hold general registration with the Psychology Board of Australia, meeting high standards in education, training, supervised practice, ethical and professional standards, and ongoing professional development.
The minimum qualification required to be qualified to apply for general registration is:
a) a four-year accredited sequence of study in psychology that has been approved by the Board
as providing a qualification for registration in the profession, that has been completed within the last ten years, or
b) an overseas qualification that in the Board’s opinion is substantially equivalent to a).
To be eligible for general registration as a psychologist, in addition to the minimum qualification applicants must have completed a postgraduate degree accredited as fifth and sixth year of study in psychology, or another approved program of supervised practice and training.
A Clinical psychologist must meet the above requirements as well as an ‘area of practice endorsement’ (such as sport or exercise psychology) for which they hold university qualifications and supervised training for. Clinical psychology involves training in the assessment and diagnosis of mental illnesses and psychological problems, and requires qualifications to provide advice in clinical and compensation areas. All clinical psychologists undertake continual learning in areas such as prevention, diagnosis, assessment and treatment, including rehabilitation.2
Whichever type of psychologist, you should expect the same quality of care, ethical behavior and standards of practice.

Online therapy is very similar to meeting with a psychologist face-to-face. It is simply a newer medium within which to obtain help via videoconferencing from your chosen surroundings.
The similarities to face-to-face therapy:
You may find online counselling is preferable because you feel more comfortable speaking with your therapist from the comfort of your own home. For others, it is important to see a psychologist face-to-face to maintain a connection within their therapeutic relationship. It depends on your individual circumstance.
All My Mirror sessions occur directly within our website – there is no need for 3rd party links or downloads.
When it’s time for your first session you simply log in to your my Mirror account and you will be directed to your dashboard. From your dashboard you will see your booking card. 5 minutes ahead of your session ‘enter session’ will appear on your booking card in green letters. Once you have selected enter session you will be directed to your waiting room where your psychologist will meet you.
Ahead of your session time you will be asked to complete a DASS-21 survey which is an assessment tool your psychologist uses to understand your mental state. While it helps to communicate your primary goals with therapy to your psychologist, there is no need to extensively prepare for your session. Your therapist will spend most of the first session asking you a series of questions to get to know you and establish the best path forward.
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 My Mirror.
We ensure all of our Clinical Psychologists and General Psychologists have current registration to practice with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) and are listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). My Mirrors ensure all of our psychologists have the required credentials and qualifications, and have relevant experience in the treatment of adult mental health issues. They also undergo an interview process conducted by a team of us at My Mirror, to ensure they uphold the highest of standards in ethical care and work in line with evidence-based practices to guide your therapy.

Absolutely brilliant service. Can not recommend this enough. So easy to use the online platform. A diverse selection of psychologists to talk to depending on your circumstance.
I live in a regional area with very little resources available for mental health. My Mirror was a great help and was super quick with any questions including how to add my mental health plan.
In the current environment where wait lists for psychologists are 12 months plus, this service gives you access to wonderful psychologists with no wait lists.
I was having trouble getting mental health services in my area, at an affordable price, and that had time slots that were workable for me. I've been connected to a great psychologist, well suited to my needs. Highly recommend.
