How much does a psychologist cost per hour?

I am committed to providing high quality psychological treatment. My fees reflect my years of training, clinical experience and ongoing dedication to improving my clinical skills.

You don’t need a referral to see me however many people accessing psychological treatment are eligible for a mental health care plan (enabling a Medicare rebate for the first ten sessions of psychological treatment per calendar year) from their GP or psychiatrist. The current Medicare rebate for a clinical psychologist is $128.40.

With a Mental Health Care Plan you can expect your out of pocket expense to be between $71- $100 per session. My first session is 1hour 50 minutes and so the out of pocket expense is higher due to the length of session.  Sessions after 5pm attract a $25 surcharge.  Standard session fee is listed below with accompanying Medicare rebate (if applicable).

If you have private health insurance you may also be eligible for a rebate from your health fund provider (NB you can not claim a rebate from your private health fund provider if you are also claiming a rebate from Medicare).

I also accept referrals from NDIS (self-managed) TAC, and Victims’ of Crime (please contact beforehand if your appointments are funded by a third party). I do not currently see clients funded by Work Cover.
