Fees & Rebates
Our consultants' fees are for 50 minutes sessions. They are lower than the APS recommended fee for the same duration (currently $251).
Check the individual consultant fees on the Our team page.
Under the Medicare's Better Access Initiative, eligible people can receive rebates for up to 10 individual sessions in a calendar year (1 January to 31 December).
The rebate amount will depend on the type of therapist, and your gap fee (out-of-pocket expense) will count towards the Medicare Safety Net (designed to protect high users of health services from large out-of-pocket expenses).
For more information see Medicare Safety Net on DHS website.
You must bring a referral from a GP or psychiatrist. Your referring doctor will assess your progress after the first 6 sessions and will extend the referral with 4 more sessions, as applicable.
Some of our consultants bulk bill Medicare for eligible people.
Check which consultant bulk bills on Our team page.
Requirements for sessions funded by 3rd parties:
Prior written approval is required from the respective 3rd party (WorkSafe, TAC, DVA) before psychology sessions can start. Sessions will be billed to the relevant 3rd party.
Victims of Crime - clients who have been victims of a crime and wish to request support from VOCAT (Victims of Crime Tribunal) can attend initial counselling sessions (as private clients or on a Mental Health Treatment Plan) and our consultants can help you apply to VOCAT
for further funding for counselling.
Talk to a lawyer to see what VOCAT can cover.
If you have an appointment that you cannot attend, please notify your therapist with at least 24 hours notice
, otherwise a cancellation fee may apply.
Please note that Medicare and private health insurance do not cover cancellation fees.
