Fees

Appointments

I see adults Monday to Friday at my Arana Hills clinic. Typically, appointments are weekly or fortnightly for a course of treatment, depending on your needs. I aim to offer people a regular day and time every 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks to suit their therapeutic goals. Sessions are 50 minutes in duration.

From 1 January 2024, the fee is $210 per standard appointment for clients seeing me directly in person or via telehealth. Appointments under NDIS are charged at the current set rate for psychology (currently $214.41).

Referrals and rebates

People can see me without a referral. However, you may be eligible for a Medicare rebate (currently $92.90 per session) for up to 10 sessions per year if you have a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) from your GP or psychiatrist. They can send this to me via secure fax on (07) 3523 5978.

Some private health insurance extras plans provide a rebate on psychology sessions - please check with your insurer. Please note that you cannot claim a Medicare rebate and a private health rebate for the same session.

Cancellation and missed session policy

If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I would appreciate as much notice as possible. I reserve your scheduled appointment time just for you, and it is difficult to fill a cancelled appointment at short notice.

For standard appointments, a late cancellation fee of $110 is charged for cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment time; a non-attendance fee equal to the full session fee is charged for non-attendance or cancelling within 1 hour of the session time. For NDIS appointments, the full fee is payable for cancellations within 24 hours (or non-attendance) if this is what is agreed under the service agreement.

Circle of Security

I am an accredited Circle of Security-Intensive Provider, and offer the Circle of Security-Intensive intervention for parents or caregivers. The process involves 15 sessions, including two video recorded parent-child interactions, one semi-structured parent interview, and 12 x hour-long one-on-one parent reflective dialogue sessions with me. The fee is $250 per session. 

You are welcome to email me at adele@beinghumanpsychotherapy.com.au to make a time to discuss doing the Circle of Security-Intensive with me.
