Our Fees

This service believes in providing an affordable service for clients and aim to ensure that finances do not prevent someone from being able to access help and support when needed.  Our professional body, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) recommends $251 per 50 minute session, however our fees are substantially lower than this.

Medicare Rebates

You may be eligible for a Medicare Rebate for sessions if your GP has referred you on a Mental Health Care Plan.  If you are referred by a Psychiatrist or Paediatrician you will also receive a Medicare Rebate.

If your GP believes you are eligible for a Mental Health Plan you can receive a Medicare Rebate for up to 10 psychology sessions per calendar year.   Some of these may be used for neuropsychological sessions.

For psychological therapy, your initial referral enables you to have 5 – 6 rebatable appointments. Your psychologist will then suggest you see the GP for a review and referral for a further 5 – 4 sessions if further appointments are needed.  A brief progress report must be provided to your referring GP (by your psychologist) for you to be able to obtain additional sessions.

Private Health Insurance Rebates

Depending on your private health scheme, you may be eligible for a rebate under Private Health Insurance (can not to be used in addition to Medicare).    If you are using Private Health Insurance the rebate amount will depend on your particular fund.

Bulk Billing

Whilst we are not a bulk billing practice, you may discuss your payment concerns with your psychologist during your first session.

Cancellation Policy

A 50% deposit is taken at the time of booking for 1 hour sessions, and deposit of $170 for assessment time slots.

Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we respectfully request

  • 24 hours notice for therapy sessions (hour sessions)
  • 72 hours notice for assessment sessions (>hour sessions)

Whilst we understand life can be unpredictable, cancellation at late notice means we are unable to offer this appointment to another client who may be on a cancellation or waiting list for an appointment.

A fee of up to half your normal appointment fee will be charged for late cancellations and failure to reschedule or cancel your appointment may result in you paying for the full consultation fee.

We certainly understand that you may not be able to keep an appointment due to sudden illness or an unexpected personal emergency.  If this does happen to you, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know.

Remember a late cancelled appointment is a loss to:

  • You, as your therapy progress is delayed
  • The client who has been waiting to see the psychologist, sometimes urgently.
  • The psychologist who spent time preparing for your session

Payment

Payment on the day is required for face-to-face one hour sessions – we accept cash, EFTPOS or credit cards.  Assessments are payable via bank transfer of funds.

You must arrange your medicare rebate directly with Medicare, who will reimburse you for the relevant amount.

If you have any concerns about finances, please discuss this with your treating psychologist or the Clinic Director.
