Consulting Fees and Hours

Standard and discount fees apply to referrals via Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP) prepared by your GP. Such referrals entitle you to up to six 50-minute sessions with a psychologist. Medicare item number 2715 (or 2717) is applicable. A further four sessions are also available in the same calendar year, but require a second referral, subject to GP review. Please ensure the nominated psychologist (eg. Peter Trask) is noted on your GP provided MHCP.

Fees

These fees are current as at 1st January 2019.

Consulting Room Face-to-Face Sessions

Standard counselling fee is $130 per session.

A discount rate of $110 per session applies for clients with a health care card or on a pension.

Videoconference - Telehealth Sessions

The same fee structure exists for telehealth sessions via videoconference, usually Skype. Refer the New Telehealth Services now available. Click on this link for all details.

Telehealth services will need to be paid in advance via EFT, BPay, etc, or if the client provides all credit card details in advance of the telehealth session, this can be charged on the day of the session, as if paying via an EFTPOS machine. For credit card payments, please provide details including Visa/Mastercard, full 16 digit number, expiry date and CVV number on the back.

Home Visits - As Negotiated

Under exceptional circumstances, home visits may be arranged from time-to-time. However, discount rates will not apply whether there is a MHCP in place or not.

Standard fee for home visits is $150 per session, with a higher Medicare rebate applicable of $106.55 per session.

Client Reports

All client reports attract a standard fee of $200 per hour plus GST. This is payable prior to receiving the report.

Consultation Days and Hours

For private practice work, my main consulting day is Friday, with excess work-load rescheduled to Saturdays by arrangement. On other work days I have employment elsewhere, including FIFO work. However, there might be scope to conduct telehealth sessions on some week-day evenings and most week-ends. Local consulting sessions may also be available by negotiation after business hours on some week-day evenings too.
