Will equine assisted therapy go ahead in the rain?
Equine assisted therapy will still be conducted if it is raining, however, if there is severe winds or storms then sessions may be cancelled with short notice. We will always advise clients if sessions need to be cancelled.
What clothes do I wear for equine assisted therapy?
Dress for the weather! E.g. bring a hat, jumper, raincoat, or gumboots depending on what the weather is doing. Always wear fully enclosed shoes, and clothing you don't mind getting dirty.
What software do I need to access my telehealth appointment?
If you're unsure about telehealth, here's a how-to video showing you how easy it is to access your sessions online with Coviu (the secure online platform that is recommended for psychologists and the platform I will be using): https://bit.ly/3ahoLRq
Once you have a telehealth appointment booked, an email will be sent to you with a link to access your appointment online. Click on the link up to 10 minutes before the session is due to start to start the session and you will be taken to a virtual waiting room.
What rebates and funding options are available?
Every person and situation is unique. Grassroots Psychology can provide services using funding models such as:
Private Health Insurance
Department of Child Safety
Can I bring my pets to a session?
We love animals here! But please do not bring your animals to a session as it will be too difficult for the therapist to manage the safety within the session. Trained assistance dogs are the exception with pre-approval, but must be vaccinated and free of fleas and illnesses.
Will I be riding horses in therapy?
No. Equine assited therapy facilitated by Grassroots Psychology is all conducted off-horse.
