What are Therapeutic Supports?

Therapeutic Supports can include a wide range of services that help you to improve your functional skills and independence. Therapeutic Supports will look different on every NDIS plan and can be used to fund supports as varied as personal trainers, dietitians and therapists.

If you do not have an NDIS plan but would still like to access BlueSky Mind Studio counselling services you may be more suited to our telehealth counselling service.

Should I see a Counsellor or Psychologist?

With such a wide range of services available to help and support you if you experience mental health issues, how do you decide who can best help? For individuals without a diagnosed mental health disorder a Psychologist or Counsellor may be able to provide support. Psychologists and Counsellors can both provide talking therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Blue Sky Mind Studio has both registered Psychologists, Counsellors and Psychotherapists available to support your needs.

Both Counsellors and Psychologists can also provide support to help mentally healthy people to function better. If you have identified the reason you are seeking therapy (for example you are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, motivation, or obsessions) a counsellor is an excellent place to start as wait times are generally shorter.

If you are looking to ensure you have the right level of support from the NDIS to achieve your goals you will need to see a Psychologist to conduct a Functional Capacity Assessment. A Functional Capacity Assessment can help you determine your functional abilities and the limitations you experience performing everyday activities, and determine any areas where you may require support or assistance.

The Blue Sky Mind Studio team includes both qualified Counsellors with experience providing CBT therapy, and Psychologists able to provide in depth care to assist with significant mental health issues and Functional Capacity Assessments.
