Each Practitioner sets their own fee and will be able to provide this information to you. The recommended fee set by The Australian Psychological Society is $228.00/hour. However because we are aware of the financial struggles many people are encountering, our practitioners charge less than this recommended fee.
All Clinical Psychology services are exempt from GST. A Missed Appointment fee will incur GST.
Please note that some therapists may impose a 1.5% surcharge for credit card payments, to cover the costs they incur from banks to provide this facility.
If you are unable to attend your appointment please let the practitioner know well in advance due to the fact that cancellations can be filled by others in need if we are given enough notice. A late cancellation fee will be imposed for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice.
All Practitioners at Richardson Street Centre are registered with Medicare Australia and can accept referrals from General Practitioners, Psychiatrists and Pediatricians to be eligible for rebates for up to 10 sessions per calendar year through the Better Access to Mental Health Initiative. The majority of patients referred under Medicare do so through their GP. To be eligible, you must meet the criteria for a psychological disorder, such as Depression, Stress or some sort of Anxiety disorder. This is at your GP’s discretion.

Private Health Insurance Rebates
Please check with your Private Health Care provider to ascertain if you are eligible for a rebate. A referral is not usually required when claiming through Private Health Care cover.
Rebates cannot be claimed from both Medicare and Private Health Care cover.
