Pricing

From Nov 1st, 2011 the Federal Government has reduced the number of Medicare funded sessions to a maximum of 10 per calendar year. Some people may require further treatment, and they could then access Private Health insurance rebates when applicable.

If you are referred by your General Practitioner under a Mental Health Care Plan, Medicare will provide a rebate of at least $124.50 for each session (depending upon safety net status). This leaves a gap of around $95 for full fee paying clients.

See more information on medicare rebates here and more information on on medicare and psychology services in general Here

Clients are encouraged to speak with Rosalind about any financial barriers they may have to accessing treatment.

In certain hardship conditions, a reduced fee can be arranged.

Clients may elect to claim rebates from their Private Health Fund. However, the Government does not allow both types of rebates to be claimed for the one session. Please advise if you would prefer to claim through your Private Health fund.

Group sessions may also attract Medicare rebates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I consider therapy?

People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, including: Coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge, and dealing with depression, anxiety or the effects of stress

A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.

What can I expect in the first session?

Generally, therapy starts with a comprehensive assessment process.

Rosalind will ask you what brings you to see her and then talk about your family history and current situation, stresses and challenges. This all takes place in a safe, respectful and caring environment. This first part is usually completed within one or two sessions.

Rosalind’s offices are located in purpose-built rooms, conveniently located in the Southport CBD, with easy access by car and public transport.
