Consulting Fees and Hours

Standard and discount fees apply to referrals via Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP) prepared by your GP. Such referrals entitle you to up to six 50-minute sessions with a psychologist. Medicare item number 2715 (or 2717) is applicable. A further four sessions are also available in the same calendar year, but require a second referral, subject to GP review. Please ensure the nominated psychologist (eg. Peter Trask) is noted on your GP provided MHCP.
