About Us
Remote Therapy is a telehealth psychology practice that provides bulk-billed psychotherapy to urban and rural areas.

The Role
You will be providing therapy to clients over a video call or over the phone.

Remote Therapy will provide the following:

  • A receptionist 5 days a week to act as a point of contact between you and your clients/referrers
  • Marketing services to ensure your schedule is always filled
  • Admin services so you can focus on treating clients
  • Payment processing/Medicare claiming
  • Video tutorials + guide for the calendar/telehealth software + training from admin
  • Peer consultation groups available with fellow team members

We are looking for psychologists who will utilise strong evidence-based therapies only.

You will be working as an independent proprietor/sole trader so you will need your own ABN.

Client Types
>90% of clients will be referred under a Mental Health Care Plan so you will need to write progress reports as a part of their treatment. Clients may also come under the Bushfire Recovery Initiative or pay privately but it is less common at <10% of all clients.

Our client base ranges from children all the way to seniors. The median client is aged 39. Clients under age 18 and over age 60 make up 7.5% and 9.5% of all clients respectively.

You may specify if you do not want to see a certain age group.

Location
This role is remote, so you can work from wherever you like, provided it is a quiet and confidential space.

Hours
You can choose which hours you want to make available and you can make adjustments at any time. We are looking for someone who has between 5 and 40 hours per week available. We will fill a 10-hour schedule in 1 week.

Payment
Payment for your services will be deposited into your bank account directly by Medicare or our private payment system. We charge a service fee of 20% on a monthly basis.

After our fee, you will take home $70.60 as a registered psych and $103.64 as a clinical psych, per 50-minute appointment that is attended.

You can choose to offer couples sessions or family sessions and you can set your own price. Your take home pay will be 80% of whatever price you choose. 

Regarding no-shows and late cancellations

If a client misses an appointment or cancels within 48 hours we charge them a fee equal to the bulk-bill rate, meaning you will get the full amount of $70.60 (registered) or $103.64 (clinical).

  • Must have access to Health Professional Online Services (HPOS) in order to create a new Medicare Provider Number online.
