Referrals & Fees

Referrals

Appointments can be booked by phoning 07 3391 5833. We can match you with the best psychologist for you, if you would like support with this.

You may wish to visit your GP or psychiatrist to discuss a referral via a Mental Health Care Plan. The Plan entitles you to a rebate for up to ten sessions per year. The Plan can be addressed to your psychologist, or if you’re unsure who you’ll be seeing the GP can address the Plan to Mindful Psychology.

Some private health funds also offer rebates for psychological services. Please speak to your provider about this.

Fees

Our fee ranges from $180 to $210 for a 50- to 60-minute session. Approximately half this amount will be rebated under a Mental Health Care Plan. The fee for relationship counselling is $210 to $240 per session.

Payment is required at the end of your session. If you are entitled to a rebate from Medicare, you will receive this the following day.

A reduced fee may be able to be negotiated for Health Care Card holders or individuals on a low income.

Cancellations

If you need to reschedule an appointment, please provide at least 48 hours notice to avoid a $50 cancellation fee.

If you provide less than 24 hours notice of a cancellation or reschedule, the full session fee will be charged.

Please understand that our cancellation policy was developed to minimise potentially negative impact on three people:

  • You – your progress in therapy will be delayed
  • Your psychologist – he/she planned for your session and arranged their schedule around you
  • Another client – they could have received the support they’re waiting on with sufficient notice
