Hello hello9899 (I like how that sounds!)
Welcome to the forums and I'm glad that you decided to join us.
So, this is a great question but can also be a tricky one because often there's lots of different options.
- Sophie_M recommended the APS website which has a directory of psychologists. Unfortunately unless you are willing to go to GP for a MHCP, you'll be required to pay out of pocket to see them privately.
With seeing your GP though, it's not necessary to talk to your family about it if you aren't ready. If you are under your parents Medicare card you can apply for your own so that things can stay private.
- https://www.theaca.net.au/find-registered-counsellor.php This one is the counselling association, which can still help with mental health but are counsellors and not psychologists so the rebate will not apply here. I'm recommending this site though that as they are not psychologists, their prices are also significantly lower.
- A local charity. This really depends on your state, but there are quite a few non-for-profits that do offer short term counselling. Relationships Australia could also be an option here https://www.rasa.org.au/services/couples-families/personal-counselling/ which are fee-free (no cost to you).
- Your university directly. With many universities they have their own counsellors which are also free - generally the best way to find this would be to look on the uni website or contact student/campus support.
I hope this helps! Feel free to check back in and ask more questions anytime.
