FEES & REBATES

Fees - Therapy / Counselling

Fees for therapy services are specific to each practitioner. The fees for 50 minute individual therapy sessions range from $150 to $260 on weekdays, and from $180 to $290 on Saturdays.  Additional fees apply for couples therapy sessions. 

Fees for insurance related services (eg: NDIS, Workcover, ICWA) are based on the relevant price/fee guide. Please contact our office on 9456 0411 or click here to contact us by email for more information.

Fees - Neuropsychological Assessments

Fees for comprehensive diagnostic assessment of attentional issues (eg: ADHD) or specific learning disorders (eg: dyslexia, dyscalculia) for children is $2200 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 $690 on weekdays and $770 on Saturdays.

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.

Fees - Insurance & Third Party Funded Services

Our fees for services funded by insurers or other third parties are based on the recommended fee schedule for the specific referral type (eg:WorkCover WA, NDIS). Please advise our receptionist on 9456 0411 if you would like to see one of our psychologists under worker's compensation or other insurance funding.

Appointment Cancellations

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

Fees must be paid in full on the day of your session and we have EFTPOS facilities for your convenience. Our fees are subject to change with 4 weeks notice and any changes will be published on this site.  We request your credit card details which are securely stored and will be 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.

 

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. We have HICAPS which allows you to lodge your private health insurance claim at our office.

 

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 referral letter from their psychiatrist can claim a rebate for a maximum of 20 sessions per calendar year. 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).

Our reception team can assist with processing your Medicare claim online for invoices paid on the day of the session by EFTPOS or via secure online credit card payment.

Please note that Medicare rebates are not available for:​

  • couples counselling sessions, even if one or both partners have a Mental Health Treatment Plan

  • Psycho-educational, ADHD and learning assessments

  • Adult autism assessments

  • Sessions held with parents regarding their child's therapy if the child is not present at the session, regardless of whether the child and/or parent has a MHTP in place.
