Psychologists Appointments with Simon DuBois

Psychologist Fees

The Australian Psychological Society, our professional association, recommends a fee of  $228 for a 46 to 60 minute session.

To make counselling affordable to my local community I have the following fee structure:

  • $160 per 50 minute session.
This fee is  paid at the time of each service either with cash or eftpos facilities.

Psychology Services Rebates

Medicare currently offer a rebate on certain psychology services through a GP mental Health Referral. Consult your GP or access the Medicare Australia website for more information.

At the time of writing the rebate available for seeing a registered psychologist is $84.80. This mean, if you pay $160 to see me with a GP Mental Health Referral you will get $84.80 back for a maximum of 10 sessions.

Psychologist Fee Support – WorkCover, Private Insurers,

WorkCover or your private insurer may cover psychology fees.  Please consult with these organisations to determine your entitlement. I am a registered psychology provider with Medicare and WorkCover.

Appointment Cancellations

Cancellations need to be made 24 to 48hrs in advance. Wait lists are often long for psychologists. Cancelling your appointment as soon as possible makes it more likely that another person in need can take your place. If you do not cancel an appointment within 24hrs a fee is incurred. This fee covers some of the costs I incur with a late cancellation.

Psychologist Report Writing

Report writing is charged at a rate of $228 an hour.
