Appointments & Fees
There are two options to access our service;
A formal referral is not necessary to utilise our services. In these cases payment is $140 per 55-minute session.
Rebates can usually be obtained through private health insurance (under “extras”) policies. The rebateable amount varies according to the policy.
2. A GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician referral
The Federal Government recently introduced rebates for consultation with Psychologists through Medicare. Individuals with a “Mental Health Care Plan” completed with their GP (or Psychiatrist or Paediatrician) pay $140 per 55-minute session and are eligible to receive a Medicare rebate. To obtain a “GP Mental Health Care Plan”, book an appointment with your Doctor (a double appointment is usually required), complete the plan and bring it along to the first session.
The Medicare rebate is available for a maximum of 10 sessions per year.

A cancellation fee is required for cancellations with less than 48 hours notice.
