Appointments are held in a comfortable setting for an hour. The counselling room is a safe place with clear processes and boundaries of confidentiality. Your counsellor or psychologist will be non-judgemental and devoted to your wellbeing.

    Collaboration in achieving your goals

    Everything that happens will be explained. Your consent and collaboration will be requested for all the steps in your work. Your psychologist or counsellor will be alert to what will be most healing for you. They will work with you to set an agreed direction and goals. They will respect and empower you as their client.

    5. Our fees are affordable

    We offer affordable counselling. Our ‘standard’ fees range from $40 to $170 per hour session. The fee very broadly reflects the experience of the therapist. The fee may be higher for after hours.

    For our psychologists, the fee is $160 per hour session. Clients can claim a Medicare rebate using a Mental Health Care Plan. GPs will write one for eligible mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. The Medicare rebate is $84.80 per session for up 10 sessions per calendar year. Payment is made on the day of the appointment.

    Our registered counsellors offer concessions if there are financial difficulties. Our psychologists may be able to provide bulk billing for those with a concession or health care card. No one will be turned away solely due to their inability to pay.
