A referral is not needed to make an appointment, however if you would like to receive Medicare rebates you will need a Mental Health Treatment Plan from your GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician. The Medicare rebate for Clinical Psychology is $136.65. There is an out-of-pocket gap between the rebate and the full session fee.

§   50 minute standard consultation - $163.65

§   75 minute long consultation - $231.65

§   90 minute extended consultation - $297.65

After hours (6pm onwards and weekend) appointments incur a higher fee.

Payment must be made on the day of the session and can be made by cash, bank transfer, credit card (fees apply) or direct deposit. 

Clients may attend the clinic without a Mental Health Treatment Plan however full fees (+$136.35) apply. Depending on your level of cover, you may be eligible to claim psychological services from your Private Health insurer. To claim a rebate you need to ensure that you are covered by ancillary benefits insurance (extras). The rebate you will receive will be based on your level of cover. It is advised that you contact your insurer to confirm your eligibility.
