Making an appointment time
I currently have availability from the 7th of April on Wednesdays. To make a booking please call my mobile on 0424 980 785 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you a call to talk about making an appointment.
What to expect
Standard therapy sessions last 50-minutes. In our first session will often involve a conversation regarding what has brought you here. We will set some therapy goals and co-create a plan to help you improve your wellbeing.
My standard fee is $180 per session. A Medicare rebate of $87 is available for clients on a mental health care plan, leaving an out-of-pocket cost of $93 per session.
Reduced fees are available to concession cardholders and individuals experiencing financial difficulties.
Obtaining a mental health care plan
You will need to obtain a mental health care plan and a referral from a GP in order to obtain a rebate from medicare. A mental health treatment plan lets you claim up to 20 sessions with a mental health professional (such as a psychologist or social worker) each calendar year.
To start with, your doctor or psychiatrist will refer you for up to 6 sessions. If you need more, they can refer you for further sessions. Medicare is currently providing rebates on up to 20 sessions per calendar year.
I am currently practicing at the beautiful Elk Wellbeing.
