With a Mental Health Care Plan, the out of pocket fee is $65 for each counselling session.

Please note that a proportion of your fees may be redeemable from your private health insurance, depending on your health plan. Please discuss this with your insurer.
Bulk billing arrangements can be made on a case by case basis for those with financial difficulties when using a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) from your GP. Please discuss this directly with the Psychologist.
