PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE WILL BE CONDUCTING VIDEO SESSIONS ONLY until it is deemed safe to return to Face to Face sessions in order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 Transmission to the Community. Please ensure you book a VIDEO SESSION (WhatsApp) via our Bookings Link below (located halfway down this page) and have downloaded WhatsApp ready for your appointment time. Once we have deemed it safe to return to Face to Face Sessions at our clinic, we will let you know. Thank you for your understanding in advance. Medicare & Private Health Rebates (if you are eligible under a Mental Health Care Plan Referral from your GP or have coverage for ‘Registered Psychologists’ under your Private Health Fund) still apply as NORMAL to all appointments via Telehealth (Video/Telephone Sessions).
Generally, we provide ‘Face to Face appointments’, ‘Video Linkup’ (WhatsApp) or ‘Telephone’ sessions at our clinic. Should Face to Face Sessions conclude at any point and you have recently returned from overseas or interstate, have a dry cough or been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please ensure you book a ‘Video Link Up’ Appointment until you have self isolated for 7 days.
Medicare REBATES, Private Health Fund or EAP REBATES may apply. See your GP, Private Health Provider or Employer (HR) for information or referral.

WE DO NOT PROVIDE QUOTES or APPOINTMENTS over the PHONE. See below for Schedule of Fees Table and the Online Bookings Link located halfway down this page. Whilst we do offer reduced fees in some rare cases (if your financial situation has changed significantly over the course of therapy), these circumstances are assessed during the session appointment at the discretion of our therapists, may only be temporary measures until a new therapist is found to suit your financial circumstances and are often limited if we have reached ‘full capacity’. PLEASE BE AWARE – WE DO NOT OFFER BULK BILLING SERVICES. If you are seeking a Considerable Fee Reduction for Psychological Services, PLEASE DO NOT BOOK an appointment at our clinic and contact your local ‘NOT FOR PROFIT’ or ‘PUBLIC HEALTH’ Agency for Psychological Services at Reduced or Bulk Billing Rates. Please note there is generally a wait list for these services.
For ALL NEW CLIENTS, Please ensure you book your appointment at least one (1) week ahead as we have stringent screening processes in place to ensure that patients have been appropriately referred by their GP or are deemed suited to the services offered at our clinic. We have the right to refuse your case and appointment and refer you to ‘an alternative agency’ or ‘back to your GP’ as a means to provide ‘the best possible care to client needs and their presenting conditions’. PLEASE NOTE: We DO NOT TOLERATE clients who engage in hostile, aggressive or abusive behaviour directed toward any staff member at our clinic and this will result in an ‘immediate termination of services’.
