Private health rebates are available for most private health funds – contact your health fund to find out the rebate you are entitled to.
Payment is required at the time of each session and can be paid via most credit cards, EFTPOS, or cash. Cheques will not be accepted.
Rebates can be processed at the time of payment into your designated account.
Concessional rates and bulk billing are available for holders of current Health Care Cards or in genuine financial hardship. Our philosophy is that financial hardship should not be a barrier to accessing high quality psychological services. If this is a concern, please discuss this with our friendly staff and we can negotiate a personalized payment schedule based your circumstances.
If your fees are being paid for you by another person, organisation or government scheme, it is your responsibility to confirm that they have accepted to do this. If they do not pay, then you will be liable for the fees.
