ACC Sensitive Claims

Psychological Services hold the ACC Integrated Services for Sensitive Claims contract. Under this contract, New Zealanders are offered fully-funded support and treatment after the experience of sexual violence/abuse.  It doesn’t matter if it happened recently or a long time ago, you will likely be eligible for Trauma Focused therapy through Psychological Services. ACC funded services also include support for your family and whānau.

You don’t need to visit your GP to lodge a claim or get pre-approval from ACC to start treatment. You can contact Psychological Services directly and speak with the Director, Hayley Matthews who will talk with you about your needs and refer you to the most appropriate therapist within her team.
