Fees for Self-referred Clients


The standard fee for a fifty-minute session is $160. Self-referred clients do not require a referral or mental health care plan from their GP, and thus are not eligible for a Medicare rebate. Payment in full is expected on the day and can be made via card, cash, or online transfer.


Fees for GP-referred Clients


The standard fee of $160 qualifies for a Medicare rebate of $81.90 per session, resulting in an out-of-pocket cost of $78.10 per session. The full payment of $160 is required on the day, and a receipt will be provided to process your Medicare claim.

Medicare Rebates


To be eligible for the $81.90 Medicare rebate per session, you must obtain a mental health care plan and a referral letter from your GP. Kindly email these documents to me before your initial session.


A mental health care plan never expires and only needs to be set up once. The accompanying referral letter will grant you access to an initial 6 Medicare-rebated sessions. Following a review by your GP, you may be eligible for an additional 4 sessions, totalling up to 10 sessions per calendar year. A calendar year runs from 1 January to 31 December.

Private Health Rebates

Some private health funds offer rebates depending on the Private Health Insurance provider and your level of cover.  Please get in touch with your private health insurer for more information.

Missed Appointments

Kindly provide at least 24 hours' notice if you cannot attend. Please note that the full session fee will be charged with no Medicare rebate eligibility for missed appointments, reschedules or cancellations if less than 24 hours' notice is provided.
