Consulting Fees and Hours

Standard fees or bulk billing applies 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.

Fees

These fees are current as at 1st January 2020.

Consulting Room Face-to-Face Sessions

Standard counselling fee is $130 per session.

Bulk billing is available for clients with a health care card, on a pension, or as negotiated.

Videoconference - Telehealth Sessions

Bulk billing is available for all Telehealth sessions with a MHCP referral (see above). Refer the Telehealth Services now available. Click on this link for all details.

Telehealth sessions are also available without a MHCP but need to be paid in advance via EFT or credit card. These include 25 minute consultation at $50, and 50 minute consultation at $90.

Home Visits - As Negotiated

Under exceptional circumstances, home visits may be arranged from time-to-time. However, discount rates will not apply whether there is a MHCP in place or not.

Standard fee for home visits is $200 per session, with a higher Medicare rebate applicable of $108.25 per session.

Client Reports

All client reports attract a standard fee of $200 per hour plus GST. This is payable prior to receiving the report.
