What does psychotherapy cost?

With a GP referral, your health insurance provider will cover the costs of psychotherapy (minus deductible and excess).

Where do therapy sessions take place?

Therapy sessions are held via video link or on-site. Access therapy whenever and however you need it. The Oviva app keeps you connected with your healthcare professional between appointments, records your mood and gives you access to valuable learning resources.

Coaching is tailored to your individual circumstances. Sometimes you’ll need just a few sessions, while at other times, you might look for longer-term support.
