The first session is $110.00 for an hour. Should we decide that counselling with me will be of value, ongoing sessions are charged for at $90.00 for a 50 minute session. These fees are payable by EFT before the session, or by cash at the time of the session.
Skype / Facebook Messenger sessions cost $80 for the first session of 65 minutes, and $60.00 for ongoing sessions of 55 minutes each. These fees are payable BEFORE each session. .
I meet with clients for anything between 2 sessions and 2 years, depending upon what you require and at what point counselling becomes superfluous. An average number of sessions is seven to eight..
PLEASE NOTE: I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, not a psychologist, so no medicare rebate is currently available for sessions. If you do have a Mental Health Treatment Plan from a GP, it may make financial sense to have your initial ten sessions with a psychologist (depending on what the psychologist charges), because of the medicare rebate. Thereafter, if you want to continue seeing someone on a longer term basis, it is usually cheaper to see a counsellor.
