Most clients will incur out of pocket expenses of $72.55 for a 50-60 minute consultation (if you are attending under a valid GP Mental Health Care Plan), however this may depend on how you have been referred to see one of our Psychologists, ie if your General Practitioner completes a general referral rather than a GP Mental Health Care Plan.
Medicare Australia and Private Health Insurance companies provide rebates for psychological consultations. Please refer to Health Insurance Information for detailed information on Medicare Australia and Private Health Insurance rebates.
If your fees are being paid by another person, organisation (such as under an Employee Assistance Program or service) or government scheme, it is the Client’s responsibility to confirm this arrangement. If the organisation does not pay, session payment is the client’s responsibility.
We charge significantly less than the standard fee recommended by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) for the year ending 30 June 2021 which is $260.00.
Individual consultations usually last 50 to 60 minutes. We suggest you allow yourself enough time prior to your consultation so you don’t feel rushed and we will certainly try not to keep you waiting. In 2021, our Psychologists are offering longer sessions up to two hours for relationship counselling. (For more information, please contact us on (07) 5444 7846 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
