Appointment Information

Therapy

This is a private psychology clinic, so private fees will apply to all therapy sessions.  This fee is required to be paid on the day of the therapy.

If your child is referred by your family doctor, under a GP Mental Health Care Plan or by their psychiatrist, or paediatrician, you can obtain a rebate for services from Medicare. As long as you have an EFTPOS card, this rebate can usually be processed at the time of your consultation.

Most private health funds also offer rebates for psychological services and if you come as a private client no referral is needed.

The usual appointment length is 50 minutes.  More than one session is often required, due to the nature of establishing a rapport with your child and working through the issues.  Medicare permit a rebate for 6 sessions initially and then another 4 sessions if required.  A therapy plan will be developed at the commencement of the therapy, with the therapy process being an interactive process that will require activities and practice of skills between session appointments.

Please contact the secretary staff for the current fees.

You can also use NDIS funding to pay for appointments, as long as this is part of your plan. You will need to provide copies of all your paperwork at the time of booking the appointment, so this can be organised.

Assessment

Autism appointments are normally 2hours in length and questionnaires will be sent out for the family and school prior to the assessment.

Full educational (cognitive assessments) appointments are normally 3hours, with questionnaires sent to the family and school prior to the assessment.

Private health rebates may apply for assessments

Please contact the secretary for the current fees.

Informed Consent

Psychologists are required to obtain ‘informed consent’ from every client, including child clients. This means that the client is informed of what is required and expected as a part of normal treatment.  It is therefore important that every client has an understanding of what to expect from their psychologist.  

Cancellation and Non-Attendance Policy/Reminder SMS Service

SMS Appointment Reminders are usually sent two days prior to your appointment.  This is a courtesy service. Please contact the office if you do not want to receive an SMS Appointment 

Cancellations of appointments where 24hours notice has not been given, or non-attendance at appointments, will result in a cancellation fee. This fee must be paid prior to further appointments being made. Please note that when appointments are cancelled, psychologists have no way of recouping the costs of making the appointment time available, hence a cancellation fee is charged. 

 Child Safe Environments 

Please note that all appointments are carried out in an environment that meets the South Australian Government’s Child Safe Environments criteria.   All Child Protection Screening has occurred of staff.
