Access and Fees


On this page, I'd like to fully inform you about the fast access you can expect into my clinical psychology practice, the fees, rebates and the practice's 48 hour notice of 'cancellation/change and fail to attend policy' for all appointments; I hope that this will provide clarity and assist you in your important decision-making about how you seek effective treatment from a competent clinical psychologist for your current difficulties.

Services are provided face to face, or via Telehealth. Please note that Medicare will now also provide for rebates for Telehealth delivered therapy services for those who reside in an eligible rural area (zone 4 and above), and temporarily for all clients until further notice,  and all services (up to ten consults per annum) are eligible for a Medicare rebate as long as you have sent me a valid GP Mental Health Care Plan ("a GP referral") or Psychiatrist referral.


  • Appointments are offered, where available, during business hours and after hours during the week. Saturday appointments may, from time to time, be arranged by negotiation.

  • The anticipated waiting time for your first appointment is almost always within two weeks only.

  • At the time of making an appointment, you are invited to discuss with me bringing your partner, family member or close friend with you to the appointment if this is your special preference

  • You do not need a referral to receive a Clinical Psychology consultation; however Medicare and some private health funds will require that you have been referred by a General Practitioner (via a 'Mental Health Care Plan') or Psychiatrist in order to be eligible to receive rebates; 
  • Please note that Medicare does not issue rebates for cancellation/late change/fail to attend fees.
