Common issues faced by people accessing WorkCover psychology sessions include:
- Trauma from work-related accidents or events
- Chronic pain from work-related injuries
- Work-related burnout, anxiety or depression

How you can access WorkCover Psychology Sessions
In order to attend the sessions with a practitioner at the READ Clinic under WorkCover you will need to provide:
- A GP referral
- Date/s of the incident/s
- Name & contact details of your WorkCover case manager
- Name of Workplace Insurer & Claim number
In your initial consultation with your practitioner they will review with you the issues that you are facing, and what your therapy goals are. Your practitioner will then put together a treatment plan which they will provide to the insurer for approval. Once your treatment plan is approved you will be able to attend further sessions with your therapist at no cost to yourself (practitioner fees are paid by your employer’s insurance company).
