Fees and Bulk Billing Options

 

Costs for Practitioners  

All sessions for adults are charged at a full fee rate and require payment upon the first session and upon each subsequent session.

On arrangement, we are able to bulk bill children (up to 16 years of age) with a valid Mental Health Care plan.

Fees are payable by either cash, EFTPOS or Credit Card on the day of service.
