Appointments are 60 minutes long, and are between 8:30am and 7pm Mondays to Friday. Under certain circumstances, I can offer appointments on a Saturday morning.
If for any reason you need to change or cancel your appointment, 48 hour notice is required to ensure an opportunity to offer that time to another. If appointments are missed or cancelled on the day, a $50 charge will be incurred.
Since November 2006, Medicare has extended its coverage to include psychological treatments with a significant rebate of $124.50 a session for clinical psychology. This change enables far more people to be able to afford professional psychological care. Medicare will rebate up to ten sessions each calendar year. To be eligible for the rebate, you must first get a referral from your GP as well as a Mental Health Treatment Plan (Medicare form #2710).
You bring your referral to your first appointment, pay the session rate of $215 by cash or debit/credit card and you will receive a rebate from Medicare in the amount of $124.50 which we can process for you at the time of payment.
Under certain circumstances the fee may be reduced by prior arrangement. Please discuss this when making your first appointment.
