Your Investment




We pride ourselves on providing you with high quality, collaborative and personalised care The Australian Psychological Society Recommended Schedule of Fees  has set the standard 45-60 minute consultation fee for 2020-2021  at $260. However, inline with our commitment to providing accessible care we made the decision to set our fees below the recommended  rate.  

Please find below an outline of your investment for the range of services we provide.

Individual Psychological Therapy

Our fees for a standard (50 minute) appointment are $175 for a psychologist and $215 for a clinical psychologist. If you live in Australia and are eligible for a Medicare rebate (Mental Health Treatment Plan; Eating Disorder Plan or Bushfire Recovery) the out of pocket expense after your rebate will be approximately $88. If you have met the Medicare Threshold than you may receive a higher rebate.

Your first session will be a little longer (65 minutes) as we believe it is important that we have enough time together in this session to get a thorough understanding of your situation and best understand how we can support you to meet your needs. The first session is an additional $35.


Couples Therapy

Couples therapy assessment appointments (65 minutes) are $225 with a psychologist and $250 with a clinical psychologist. Couples therapy treatment sessions (80 minutes) are $275 with a psychologist and $300 with a clinical psychologist. Unfortunately in Australia Medicare does not provide a rebate for couples therapy. 


Dietetic and Nutrition Appointments

Initial sessions (1 hour)  with a dietitian are $135 and subsequent appointments (30 mins) are $85. If you are eligible for a Medicare rebate (Chronic Disease Management or Eating Disorder Plan) the rebate is $53.30 per session.  For a standard subsequent appointment the out of pocket expense after a rebate is $31.20


NDIS Clients

If you are an NDIS client we are able to service you if you are self-managed or plan managed.  Unfortunately if you are not plan or self managed we will not be able to provide services. The fee for NDIS clients for psychological therapy is $214.41.


TAC Clients

If you are a TAC client you must have prior approval from TAC, if you are not eligible for TAC contribution you will be liable for the full fee.┬áPlease note we will claim TAC’s contribution directly from TAC and so you will only need to pay the out of pocket fee.
