How long do appointments go for?

Appointments usually go for about 50 minutes.

What are your fees? 

All of our fees are outlined on our fees page on this website. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask us. Fees are reviewing annually and are set based on running a viable business to keep providing services to the families and individuals we support. 

Do you bulk bill? 

No, we do not bulk bill.  If you require a bulk billing counselling practice, please discuss this with your GP or referring medical practitioner. 

How does it work when I bring my child or young person to counselling sessions?

Usually when we work with children and young people we have a brief discussion with the parents/carers and child at the beginning and end of the session, and work with the child/young person in the middle of the session.  However, this may vary slightly based on what the child feels comfortable with and needs from therapy, and what work we need to do that involves the parent/carers. 

Do I need a referral or can I just book an appointment? 

You do not need a referral to book an appointment.  However, if eligible, most clients do get a GP referral first under a Mental Health Care Plan so they can get rebates back for their sessions.   If you wish to get rebates for your sessions, you will need to provide us with this referral paperwork before we can book the first appointment. 

How soon can I get an appointment? Do you have a waiting list? 

We have no waiting list. We can usually offer new clients an appointment within one to two weeks. If it is a peak time, or around public holidays, appointments timeframes may bit a little bit longer. Please check our home page to see the current timeframes we can offer appointments.
