A standard 50-minute therapy appointment is $230 and the initial assessment (approximately 1 hour) is $260. Fees can be paid by EFTPOS, cash, or credit card (no AMEX) at the end of the appointment. Telehealth appointments are charged to your card at the end of the appointment.
Fees and appointment lengths alter slightly for other services such as initial 3-hour assessments for selective mutism, educational and intellectual/psychometric assessments, and report-writing. Please contact us for more information about these services.
Rebates for psychological services are available from several sources including:
Under the Medicare ‘Better access to mental health‘ scheme clients with a diagnosable mental health condition who are seeing a clinical psychologist at our practice can obtain a rebate for up to 10 therapy sessions in each calendar year. To be eligible to receive the rebate you must visit your GP, Psychiatrist, or Paediatrician and obtain a referral for psychological services as part of your overall treatment plan.
The usual medicare rebates are also available for Telehealth sessions. All of our psychologists are currently providing telehealth (video or phone sessions) for clients during the COVID-19 outbreak.
If you have reached your Medicare family ‘safety net’ threshold for the calendar year, the rebate will be almost all of the session cost.
