FEES & REBATES
Fees - Therapy / Counselling
Fees for therapy services are specific to each practitioner. Currently, fees for 50 minute individual therapy sessions range from $155 to $250 on weekdays, and from $185 to $280 on Saturdays. Additional fees apply for couples therapy sessions. Our fee schedule applies to appointments attended at our Canning Vale and Mount Pleasant locations, or via telehealth.
Fees for insurance related services (eg: Workcover, NDIS, ICWA) are available from our reception team. Please contact our office on 9456 0411 or click here to contact us by email for more information.
Fees - Psychological Assessments
Fees for comprehensive diagnostic assessment of attentional issues (eg: ADHD) or specific learning disorders (eg: dyslexia, dyscalculia) for children is $2800 and includes a written report and feedback session. If additional testing or consultation is required, additional fees will apply.
The fee for Adult ADHD diagnostic assessments is $1350.
We also offer complex neuropsychological assessments and a fee for these assessments will be provided based upon the specific referral request. Please contact our reception on 9456 0411 for further information.
Please note, payment of the full assessment fee is required before the assessment.
We require 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, which allows us enough time to offer your appointment to other clients.
Therapy sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will attract a late notice fee equivalent to the full session fee, and sessions cancelled with 24-48 hours notice will attract a late notice fee of 50% of the full session fee. If we are able to fill the appointment with another booking, you will not be charged. The late notice fee will only be waived in the case of a medical emergency.
Please note, if you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, we reserve the right to reschedule the appointment (rather than offer a shorter session) if we believe rescheduling will allow us to provide better care or quality of service. If for some reason, your practitioner is running late for your appointment, you are welcome to reschedule if you prefer.
Payment of Accounts
Pre-payment of initial appointments is required at the time of booking. Fees for subsequent therapy sessions must be paid in full on the day of the session. We have EFTPOS and online credit card payment facilities for your convenience. Our fees are subject to change with 2 weeks notice and our reception team can provide details of current fees. We request your credit card details which are securely stored and utilised as needed for payment of fees/invoices.
Please note, if your invoice is outstanding for more than 48 hours, we may cancel your future appointments until payment is received.
Payment for assessment and report writing services is required in advance.
Private Health Insurance Rebates
Many private health insurance funds provide a rebate for services provided by psychologists. We encourage you to contact your health insurance fund prior to your appointment to find out whether your policy covers services provided by your chosen psychologist.
Can I claim a rebate from Medicare?
Most of our practitioners are registered Medicare providers and clients with an eligible Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) referral from their GP, or a Better Access related referral letter from their psychiatrist can claim a rebate for a up to 10 sessions per calendar year (from 1 January 2023). Medicare rebates for psychology services are provided in sets of sessions and a new GP referral letter is required for each set of sessions. Rebates apply for eligible sessions attended in-person or via telehealth (video or phone sessions).
Please note that Medicare rebates are not available for:
Sessions with a provisional psychologist
Couples counselling sessions, even if one or both partners have a Mental Health Treatment Plan
Educational / learning assessments
Adult autism assessments
Sessions held with parents regarding their child's therapy if the child is not present for the whole session, regardless of whether the child and/or parent has a MHTP in place.
