Fees for Psychology Consults and Services
Thank you for your interest in consulting me as your Psychologist. Please see below for details of my service fees.
I conduct sessions either face-to-face from my practice rooms or via Telenealth (Zoom or phone) for those who cannot make it to the Practice.
I consult from my Baulkham Hills rooms in the Norwest Business Park on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. On Wednesdays I offer Telehealth only. I have after hours appointments (latest appointment 6pm) available on each of those days.
$200 per 55 minute session
Additional fees apply for reports or other services that require time to be spent outside of your session. This is usually charged based upon the time it takes me to complete the work.
Payment is required at time of consultation or on receipt of invoice if you are a telehealth client. Payments can be made by eftpos, direct transfer or credit card. I am able to process Medicare rebates and most health insurance claims on the spot for face-to-face clients.
Medicare and Mental Health Care Plans
Some of my clients are able to access the Medicare Benefits Scheme for their mental health treatment. This scheme allows you to access a rebate for up to 10 psychology sessions per calendar year. The rebate is currently $92.90 per 50+ minute session. Your GP will determine your eligibility for this scheme and will provide you with a referral and a Mental Health Treatment Plan if this is the case. This paperwork is important so please bring it with you to your session. Click here for more information.
I can process most Health Fund claims on the spot if you are covered for psychology services under your policy. Please bring your Health Insurance card with you if you would like to use this service.
I ask that you respect my time by giving at least 24 hours’ notice if you are unable to attend a session and I commit to showing you the same courtesy. I often have a waiting list for appointments and it is frustrating for those clients, and for me, if I don’t have enough time to offer them your spot. Short notice cancellations attract a $55 cancellation fee, whilst failing to turn up for your appointment without any notice at all may incur the full cost of the missed session. Whilst I understand that there are sometimes extenuating circumstances, please appreciate that my time is as precious as yours and that this work is my livelihood.

Mindfulness practices are emerging as an amazing antidote to the more negative effects of the way we currently live in modern societies. To be mindful is to be in the ‘now’ – not re-hashing things that have happened in the past or creating scenarios about the future....read more
