Fees

The cost of a standard consultation is 

Individual $200

Couple $225

Accounts are payable on the day at the end of the session. Payment can be made by either cash, MasterCard, Visa, or Debit Card. Consultations will generally be 50 minutes. GST is not payable on standard consultations.

You will receive $84.50 Medicare rebate with a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan or  psychiatrist referral. See Australian Psychological Society fact sheet about Medicare rebates. Alternatively you can claim on your private health insurance.

Cancellations

When you make an appointment I commit my time to be available for you. Unlike most other professional services, cancellations made within a day or two usually cannot be filled. If you do need to reschedule or cancel your appointment please provide at least 48 hours notice. Other clients may be on a waiting list, thus more notice is better. Changes to appointments with less than 48 hours notice will incur a charge of $150, payable at the next session. The cancellation fee is required to reduce the pressure to increase the standard consultation fee in order to compensate for missed appointments.

Last minute cancellations may be due to increasing levels of anxiety as your session approaches, indicating a behavioural pattern of avoidance.  If you think this applies to you, please bring it up at the following session as this is a valuable opportunity to learn about yourself.

Those who do not show up to a booked appointment on 3 occasions, with out prior notice, will be required to pay the account for the future appointment 48 hours in advance.
