The first session is $70.00 for an hour. Should we decide that counselling  with me will be of value, ongoing sessions are charged for at $90.00 for a 50 minute session. These fees are payable by EFT before the session, or by cash at the time of the session. 

Skype / Facebook Messenger sessions cost $50 for the first session of 65 minutes, and $70.00 for ongoing sessions of 55 minutes each.  These fees are payable BEFORE each session. 

I meet with clients for anything between 2 sessions and 2 years, depending upon what you  require and at what point counselling becomes superfluous. An average number of sessions is seven to eight..

PLEASE NOTE: I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, not a psychologist, so no medicare rebate is currently available for sessions. If you do have a Mental Health Treatment Plan from a GP, it may make financial sense to have your initial ten sessions with a psychologist (depending on what the psychologist charges), because of the medicare rebate.  Thereafter, if you want to continue seeing someone on a longer term basis, it is usually cheaper to see a counsellor. 


Medicare rebates are claimable for many conditions with a GP Mental Health Care Plan

Assessment fees are inclusive of feedback (one hour), reports and case conferencing with teachers and other allied health or medical professionals.
