In-person therapy at our welcoming Melbourne CBD rooms

Mental health is just as important to our general wellbeing as physical health. That’s why we treat psychology as an integral part of life rather than as a clinical experience.

 

Join us for a session in our warm and welcoming space.

Online therapy via Telehealth

Whether for health reasons, work or parenting commitments, you can now conveniently access online psychology sessions with our team. It’s emotional support when you need it in the comfort of your own home.

What is Telehealth?​

Telehealth consultations are held via a live video-conferencing platform offering you the same high level of care and support as an in-person appointment.

 

You can see, hear and speak with your psychologist in real time from the comfort of your home (anywhere in Australia).

 

We use Coviu, an encrypted video conferencing software made especially for health practitioners.

Fees

Our standard fees are more affordable than the recommended fee for psychological services.

Clinical Psychologists

50 minute sessions are $206.35, which is competitive compared to recommended rates.

 

With a Medicare rebate ($129.55 under a MHCP from your GP), you will pay an out-of-pocket investment of $76.80 per session.

Psychologists (Clinical Psychology Registrars)

50 minutes sessions are $165, which is competitive compared to recommended rates.

 

With a Medicare rebate ($88.25 under a MHCP from your GP), you will pay an out-of-pocket investment of $76.75 per session.

Medicare (under COVID-19 MBS items)

In-person and telehealth (online video) sessions attract the same fee. However, please let us know your individual circumstances, especially if you have lost your job due to COVID-19.

Medicare rebates

If you have a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) from your referring GP, you can typically access Medicare rebates for up to 10 sessions in a calendar year.

 

From 9 October 2020, all Australians can access an additional 10 MHCP sessions per year (20 sessions) until June 2022. Some private health companies also provide a rebate for psychological services. Check with your provider. You can attend sessions privately without the need for a referral.

How Medicare works

In this video Dr Phoebe takes you through how to get a Mental Health Care Plan, Medicare rebates, and the mental health care system.

* Please note, this information is a guide only. You are responsible for doing your own research and discussing your individual circumstances with your healthcare provider.

Private sessions

You can also attend sessions "privately" without a MHCP. This means that either a rebate will be claimed with your private health insurance or you will pay the full fee.

 

Check with your provider whether rebates cover telehealth services (telephone and video sessions).
