Please DOWNLOAD our fees sheet and carefully read the fee based on the referral type. Give us a call or email if you have any questions.  


We do not bulk-bill as we are registered providers for a number of low or no cost counselling programs - Carer's Victoria, and Veterans and Veterans Families Counselling Service.


Fees are to be paid at the time of the appointment. Generally, we do not book appointments for clients until they have the referral to ensure they have the appropriate paperwork, and can claim medicare rebates or other funding as applicable. Since we have no waiting list, we can usually get most clients in for an appointment within a week or two. 

 

We accept cash or cheque.  Please bring the exact amount of cash as we do not have change at our office. We do NOT have eftpos or credit card facilities. Let us know the payment method you will be using when you book your first appointment, then we will have your invoice prepared to reflect this. 
 
 
Clients can pay via EFT but we strictly ask that clients transfer funds the same day as the appointment as it can take up to two days for funds to appear in our bank account. We want to avoid having to utilise our time chasing payments that are delayed or pending. 
 

Ensure you are fully aware of our cancellation policy (and timeframe) and agree payment of these fees to cover our costs.  If fees are not paid as outlined, you may incur a late payment fee of $20 to cover our administrative costs to follow up payments. 

 

Medicare Programs

Most clients are referred by their GP under a Mental Health Care Plan and a referral letter.

 

- With a Mental health treatment plan upfront fees are $135 per session. We provide you with an medicare invoice upon payment, and you can claim up to 10 sessions per calander year. Rebates from Medicare are about $75 per session.  The initial referral allows for six sessions, then a review is required with the GP to obtain another referral letter for a further 4 sessions. 

 

Please DOWNLOAD the "Medicare Referrals" sheet to print off and take with you to the GP to discuss the most appropriate referral pathway based on your financial circumstances.

 

We believe our fees are very reasonably priced compared to other practitioners in the area, not to mention well below the fees outlined by the Australian Association of Social Workers.

 

We review our fees and expenses annually. Fees have generally increased by a few dollars each year.
