The Australian Psychological Society (APS) publishes a recommended schedule of fees as a guide for psychologists providing private psychology services. The 2023-2024 Recommended Schedule of Fees has set the standard 45 to 60 minute consultation fee at $300. This is a recommendation only. The fee at which a service is set is at the discretion of the individual psychologist.

We are a fee-paying clinic and do not bulk bill. Medicare rebates of $131.65 for a Clinical Psychologist and $ 92.90 for a Counselling Psychologist per session, can be claimed (please see section on Medicare rebates). Please call or email to discuss our schedule of fees and rebates available to you.

Sessions are available on some evenings, for face-to-face, phone or video consultations. We do our best to keep our fees below the rate recommended by the Australian Psychological Society. Fees are payable the day before the appointment via EFT, STRIPE, Visa or MasterCard.

MEDICARE REBATES AVAILABLE

If you are referred by your GP, Psychiatrist or a Paediatrician with a Mental Health Care Plan you will be eligible for a Medicare rebate for up to 10 face-to-face or online sessions (6 initial sessions + 4 more upon review by the GP) per calendar year. You will need to pay the full fee for the session and then claim directly with Medicare to process the rebate for you.

CANCELLATIONS

If you are unable to attend, please cancel at the earliest opportunity so that the appointment can be made available for another person. In the case of less than 24 hours’ notice, we will need to charge a cancellation fee (where upon the full fee payment is required). Please reschedule by Friday for appointments for the following Monday otherwise a cancellation fee will be charged. This fee is not claimable under Medicare or Health Funds. TAC and WorkCover clients will also be responsible for a cancellation fee.

PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE

If you have private health insurance, you may be eligible for rebates under Extras Cover. As every fund is different and can change over time, it is best to check with your private health fund about your specific entitlements etc.
