This is a private billing practice, fees are $185 for a standard consultation, which usually lasts 50 minutes, with no extra charges for new patients. I also offer a hardship sliding scale for fees so please contact me if you’d like to discuss the fees further. You do not need a GP referral to see a Clinical Psychologist. If you have ancillary cover through your private health fund, you may be able access rebates for psychological services.
Medicare rebates apply to the consultation fee if you have been referred by your GP or Psychiatrist and have been given a Mental Health Care Plan. If you have a Mental Health Care Plan you will be eligible for a Medicare rebate of $124.50 for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. Unfortunately, if less than 24 hours notice is given, a cancellation fee of 100% of your session fee will be incurred. This fee is not subject to a Medicare or private health fund rebate.
Payment can be made through the 'Healthkit' management system using credit and debit cards or cash.
If you do not have a current Mental Health Care Plan through your GP but you do have private health insurance, you may be able access rebates for psychological services.
