Standard Consultation 50 minutes
Upon presentation of an appropriate referral 89.65 will be rebated by Medicare
Face to Face or Telehealth sessions 50 minutes duration
Please note we require 2 business days notice if you wish to cancel or reschedule your session, or a cancellation fee will be charged. The fee will be the consultation fee. In the case of a standard consultation this fee would be 150. This provides us with enough time to allocate the session to another client. If your vacated session can be successfully filled, no cancelation fee will be charged.
If you fail to attend without notice, you will be charged the full session fee.
If you are unable to attend the clinic for any reason, the session may be conducted via Telehealth.
About our fees.
The fees charged by Psychologists and psychology practices are guided by the Australian Psychological Society (APS). Currently the APS recommends psychologists charge $260 for a 50-minute session. At The Psych Clinic we work hard to ensure our fees are substantially lower than the APS suggested rate, to make sure that mental health is affordable for you. In addition if you present a valid referral from your GP the rebate you receive from Medicare covers a significant portion of your session fee thus further reducing your out of pocket expenses.
