Fees, Rebates & Session Times
Medicare allows 10 sessions per calendar year, with a Mental Health Care Plan provided by a doctor. Please feel welcome to speak with me about the requirements necessary for the Mental Health Care Plan.
Individual Counselling. The standard fee is $195 per hour with a Medicare rebate of $87.45 per session.
Couples counselling is $240 per hour.
All sessions are 55 minutes duration, unless arranged prior.
You can book online 24/7.
All appointments can be made by ringing 0412 099 382 between the hours of 8.30 – 5.30 Monday to Friday.
I have a cancellation policy because sometimes when a person is seeing a psychologist there are issues that are quite confronting for the client and it can be easy to decide not to come today and hence miss the opportunity to explore what is happening. It also means someone else who may have wanted to see me, has missed an opportunity to do so. It also means that I miss out on my income.
If you don’t give 48 hours notice and the session is not filled by someone else, you are responsible for the full session fee.
The Medicare rebate cannot be used to pay any part of a cancellation fee.
The Therapy Space
My work space is very important to me. I want to provide a safe place for all people, no matter what their reason for seeing me. I will treat you with respect whilst at the same time challenging you to move forward in your personal growth. The therapy space can be quiet and reflective or loud and determined. It can be highly charged with emotion or sedate.
My Commitment to You
I am committed to continue my study and learning in my areas of expertise. I undertake regular supervision with other highly skilled psychologists and counsellors. I always protect your privacy in this and never reveal anything from a session that can identify any of my clients.
