About the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers. The NDIS replaces the old system of block funding with individualised funding. The NDIS is now active across Melbourne.
What does individualised funding mean?
Previously, organisations providing supports would receive funding and the individual would have to go where the funding was, whether or not it really suited them. With the new NDIS model, people are now receiving individualised funding which allows them to chose which organisation they would like to have support them to achieve their goals.
Why access counselling and psychology through the NDIS?
Accessing counselling and psychology through the NDIS will ensure that you receive the support that is best tailored for your needs whilst the quality of the service isn’t compromised. As you receive individualised funding through the NDIS according to your assessed needs, the financial side of things will be taken care of through the scheme and you can fully concentrate on working towards your goals.
Foundation Psychology’s mission is to provide services for people in Melbourne, informed by the following values:
Respect – We embrace the individual’s right to be empowered to live the life they choose
Collaboration – We create strong partnerships through open communication, mutual respect and trust
Innovation – We commit to continuous improvement and are responsive to individuals through creative solutions
What can you expect from your Foundation Psychology NDIS psychologist?
Your NDIS psychologist will focus on your individual journey and goals. They will recognise that it is you who is taking centre stage and will follow your lead.
When working with a psychologist at Foundation Psychology we usually start by exploring what it is that you would like to achieve. Together we can create a plan that contains your goals and this will be the basis of our work together. These goals are a great way to measure progress but can always be adjusted along the way to suit your needs and circumstances should they change during our time together.
