Counselling Fees

Self-referred Clients

 

Standard fees are priced at $150 per fifty-minute session.

 

Reduced fees for low-income earners are priced at $120 per fifty-minute session. 

 

Self-referred clients do not need a referral from their GP and will not be entitled to claim a Medicare rebate. Full payment is made on the day via card, cash or online transfer.

 

​GP-referred Clients

 

Standard fees are priced at $150 less a Medicare rebate of $77.80 per session, leaving an out-of-pocket cost of $72.20 per session.

 

Reduced fees for low-income earners are priced at $120 less a Medicare rebate of $77.80 per session, leaving an out-of-pocket cost of $42.20 per session. 

 

Full payment is made on the day via card, cash or online transfer, and an invoice/receipt will be issued to process your claim from Medicare.

 

Medicare Rebates

 

To be eligible for the $77.80 Medicare rebate per session, you must obtain a referral and mental health care plan from your GP and email them to me or bring them to the first session.

 

Being on a mental health care plan will enable you to initially access 6 Medicare rebated sessions, followed by a further 4 sessions after a review by your GP and potentially a further 10 sessions at the discretion of your GP (a total of 20 sessions per calendar year).

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

 

A full cancellation fee will be charged for missed appointments, reschedules and cancellations if less than 24 hours notice is provided.
