Sessions are 50 minutes.  My fee is $190.00.

Medicare rebate

Medicare will rebate up to ten psychological consultations per calendar year.  If symptoms meet Medicare’s criteria for psychological consultations, your doctor will issue a referral-letter to a specific psychologist.  Your psychologist needs a copy of this referral-letter in order to issue your Medicare-rebate receipt.  As of December 2023, the Medicare rebate with a registered psychologist for a 50-minute consultation was $93.35.

You do not need a referral from a doctor to see a psychologist. You can simply call direct and book a consultation.  But you cannot claim a Medicare rebate if your psychologist isn’t supplied with a doctor’s referral letter.  Some patients book directly because it caters to their privacy concerns, they may not be eligible for a Medicare rebate, or they want a therapeutic approach which is not restricted by Medicare instructions.

Cancellation policy

Cancellations within 72 hours of your session time are chargeable.  This is because it is unlikely that I will be able to make professional use of the time that I have reserved with and for you, at short notice.  No-shows are also chargeable.
