The majority of my clients get a referral from their GP or another health professional. However, you do not need a referral to make an appointment with me.
Please feel free to contact me to make an enquiry, to discuss your concerns as it would help you make the decision that I am suitable to assist you.
A standard psychology consultation lasts 50-60minutes. Fees are taken on the day of the session and my fees are set considerably lower than those set by the Australian psychological Society. Payment can be made via Eftpos, Credit Card or Cash. Payments, Medicare Rebates and Insurance Claims can be processed on the spot.
I am a registered Medicare Provider. Rebates for psychology consultations are available under the Medicare Initiative- ‘Better Access to Mental Health Care’. If your G.P, Psychiatrist or Pediatrician assesses that you have a mental health issue, you can be eligible to receive Medicare Rebate for up to 10 individual psychological services per calendar year. If the doctor considers that you are eligible he/she will write you a referral as part of the health care plan. This should be brought to your first appointment with the psychologist in order to claim the rebate.
Private Health Insurance:
I am registered with a number of private health insurance companies which offer rebates for psychology consultations. This is as an alternative to Medicare Rebate (or after Medicare rebates have expired). Please contact your Insurance provider to determine whether your level of cover includes Psychology Services
Please provide at least 24hrs notice for cancelling an appointment. A cancellation fee of $50.00 will be charged for a short notice cancellation.
