Are you searching for a psychologist, but cannot find any available or even located in your area? Perhaps you’re not comfortable meeting with a psychologist in person?
At My Mirror, we understand that seeking a psychologist can be daunting, especially if you're unsure where to begin. That's why we provide a selection of flexible, online psychology services, allowing you to get on track with your mental health goals from the comfort of your home.
Here are just a few reasons why online psychology may be the right choice for you:
With online psychology, you don't have to worry about commuting to a physical location or taking time off work to attend appointments. You can schedule sessions at a time that works best for you and connect with your therapist from wherever you have an internet connection.
Life can be unpredictable, and sticking to a traditional in-office appointment schedule with a ‘psychologist near me’ isn't always easy. With My Mirror, you have the flexibility to reschedule or move your appointments as needed. We have sessions available on your own schedule up to 21 hours a day, 7 days a week. What’s more, you can say goodbye to long waiting periods – we also have sessions available within 24 hours, ensuring you receive the help you need when you need it.
Some people may feel more comfortable discussing sensitive or personal issues with a therapist online, rather than in person. Online psychology allows you to maintain a level of anonymity while still receiving the support you require.
Are you living in a remote area with very few counsellors near you, or do you have mobility issues that make it difficult to get to a physical location? Online psychology can provide access to mental health care that may not be available in your local community.
At My Mirror, we make finding the right therapist easy with our psychologist matching tool. Simply tell us a little bit about yourself and your therapy goals, and we'll connect you with a psychologist with the most relevant experience.
Take the hassle out of finding a counsellor near you that's also well-suited to your needs.
We understand you have a busy and varying schedule and, as such, have built our service with flexibility in mind. Book to suit your schedule with psychologists available up to 21 hours a day.
You can also book recurring sessions in advance to lock in your desired time window.
For most online sessions, you will have to pay the difference between the full charge and the Medicare rebate.
With that said, My Mirror does offer some bulk-billing psychologist services, ensuring you pay no out-of-pocket expense during your appointment. Our psychologists allocate a portion of sessions bulk-billed and our team reviews on a case-by-case basis against a few financial hardship criteria.
At My Mirror we know how important it is to get access to mental health support, when and where you need it most. That’s why we provide bulk-billed sessions to those with a valid Medicare card living in Australia that meets certain criteria. Check your bulk-billing eligibility
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).

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.
