Work Cover Psychologist Services
Psychologists approved to provide counselling under Work Cover
If you have been injured at work or in the course of carrying out your work you may require the services of a Psychologist as part of your recovery.
We have extensive experience working with Work Cover claims. In WA WorkCover, your GP or Comcare may refer you to a Psychologist once your claim has been approved. These sessions are time-limited and the number of sessions is determined by the Agency after assessing your claim. Successful claims will result in the cost of your sessions being covered by WorkCover or Comcare.
We can assist with:
- Mental health conditions associated with physical injury/pain
- Mental health conditions associated with trauma
- Mental health conditions arising out of workplace stress
Mental Health claims and Work Cover
We understand that Psychological injury remains a major source of lost time and compensation cost in the Comcare/WorkCover scheme. If someone is off work due to mental ill health, what might begin as a temporary incapacity for work can drift into longer-term disability, disadvantage and unemployment.
Work loss due to mental ill health has costs for the individual, their families and communities. In addition, the cost to government and business are cumulative and include absenteeism, reduced productivity and higher workers’ compensation premiums.
We can work with GP’s to help assess worker’s capacity, coordinate return to work, empower people and overcome barriers and risks to return to work.
Please email a copy of your work cover claim prior to your appointment.
