(For therapy only - please see 'Assessments' for individual assessment pricing)
Fees for counselling consultations are guided by the recommendations outlined by the Australian Psychological Society (APS). The current recommended fee for a consultation of 45-60 min is $280. At Mini Minds we offer a reduced maximum fee of $250, however this fee may be reduced depending on the experience of the practitioner.
You do not need a referral to make an appointment, however if you wish to claim through Medicare you will need a referral from your General Practitioner via the 'Better Access to Mental Health Care' initiative. This allows a Medicare rebate for up to 10 counselling consultations per calendar year.
Medicare offers several other programs under which eligible clients can claim back counselling and assessment fees. Please refer to the below website for more information:
