Australian Expat Psychology
Scope Psychology Services Australia provides Australian expat psychology services for Australians who are studying or working overseas with limited access to psychological services. We understand the struggle that comes with living overseas long-term, and are well equipped to help you to overcome those difficulties.
Scope Psychology Services Australia has developed an online service that caters for Australian expats overseas and people in remote areas where access to psychological services is limited. Our psychologists are trained to deliver the same quality experience you would receive in person over Telehealth.
Our Australian Expat Psychology services can help with the many challenging aspects that come with picking up your life and moving it somewhere overseas, away from friends and family. Homesickness aside, there are a number of stressors that are introduced to your life when you decide to live outside your home country, whether they’re: isolation, work or cultural differences.
That’s why we’re here, so you can have access to a regulated Australian psychologist who is familiar with your home country and the cultural differences that you are encountering. Thankfully, we live in a time when internet speeds and standards of security are at an all time high for video conferencing via Telehealth.

Is my session private?
Yes! We use Coviu, which is simple + secure with end-to-end encryption. You’ll receive the link to your appointment approximately 30-minutes before the scheduled start time.
Do I need a referral for Australian expat psychology?
No. Anyone can make an appointment + access our psychologists straight away. But, a referral from your GP under a mental health care plan will allow you access to Medicare rebates for counselling services.
Booking a Telehealth appointment is as easy as it is in person – in fact, it’s even easier to coordinate with our psychologists. As far as the actual sessions go, you can expect to see the same quality service that you would expect to be delivered in person.
