Fees and Payments

counsellor therapist the bestCounselling sessions with me are competitively priced and designed to not only make my services affordable but enable you to get the help you are looking for. My fee is substantially discounted from the recommended fee structure. Of course cost matters, especially when rarely is counselling completed in one or two sessions and in some instances can be long term. However, if cost is your sole guide, then you may be less likely to be satisfied with the outcome. When choosing a counsellor you want to work with also consider what training, experience, qualifications and endorsements you would like them to have.

Private Health Funds

Please check with your insurer first, as some private health funds may refund counselling fees.
Medibank Private, Australian Unity, Doctors Fund, and CBHS Health Funds provide rebates, but this is dependent on your policy.

Cancellation Policy

counselling cancellation reschedule policyI appreciate and understand that there are times when it may be necessary to cancel your appointment however,  I require a full 24 hours notice of your inability to attend. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice typically cannot be filled with such short notice and therefore will attract a charge.
Failure to provide such notice will result in you being charged 50% of the full session fee. A missed consultation with no notice will be charged the full session fee.

If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please contact me on 8448 1106.
