Seeing a child psychologist usually will cost between $150 – $220 hour. Psychologists complete 6 years of study and our rates are similar to what you would expect in seeing a lawyer. There are times we offer reduced rates and often this is on a case by case basis. Medicare will cover about $75 to $125 of the consultation costs. The times when reduced rates may be offered is when a psychologist has recently joined us, when they have recently graduated from university, or when their is a match on their area of expertise and a specific group.
The best way to find a reduced rate is to attend our clinic for a Free Emotional Health check up. During the check up we can gain a deeper understanding of the issue, provide details on options and have it confidential. Yes in rare occasions, bulk billing may be available if our Director deems it necessary and that treatment limited to 10 sessions will be adequate. Our administration staff are not able to answer detailed questions about child referrals, as it is one area of psychology that is quite complicated.
Call 1800 877 924 if you want to book one of our psychologists, or request a free emotional health check up. The check up can occur over the phone, and you don’t have to bring your child. Just make sure staff know the appointment is about your child.
