Parramatta Psychology Clinic can provide psychological services to individuals who are eligible as a part of their Workcover (SIRA) or Compulsory Third Party (CTP) claim.
We have a number of Psychologists throughout our various clinic locations that are accredited by WorkCover NSW (SIRA), and NSW Motor Accidents Authority (MAA) to provide treatment in such cases.
The goal of our Workcover (SIRA) Psychologists is to provide psychological services with a focus on achieving a safe and sustainable recovery at work through an empathetic and evidence-based approach tailored towards each individual client.
You may be eligible for psychological treatment in regard to your injury in the case that this is recommended by your Nominated Treating Doctor.
Our Workcover (SIRA) Psychologists can provide assessment, treatment and assistance to help clients overcome the challenges associated with an work related injury. We take a holistic approach as we understand these injuries can impact an individual’s social, professional and personal functioning.
At Parramatta Psychology Clinic we take a collaborative approach with the various key stakeholders (e.g. client, employer, insurer and other treatment providers) involved in a Workcover (SIRA) claim with frequent communication and updates on treatment progress, including reports where required.
We accept referrals and enquiries from Nominated Treating Doctors, insurers, rehabilitation providers, employers, solicitors, and individuals for psychological assessment and clinical treatment to assist individuals facing psychological challenges following a work-related injury.
Parramatta Psychology Clinic strictly adheres to the Workcover (SIRA) guidelines for psychological treatment. This ensures all services are “reasonable and necessary” and time limited. The first session entails an initial assessment, treatment plans are tailored to the client and developed collaboratively with them, evidence based outcomes measures are used to monitor progress.
