Private Health Rebates:

A substantial proportion of your consultation fee may be reclaimed through various private health funds. Room For Positive Change is equipped with HICAPS facilities so if you bring your health fund card, your rebate can be processed at the time of consultation. If you would like to know the exact rebate amount, please check with your health fund regarding eligibility for psychological services. The level of rebate will depend on your level of cover.  

Standard Consultation (Clinical and Coaching)

A standard 50-60 minute consultation is $190.00. This fee is substantially lower than the recommended fee of $238.00 which is set by the Australian Psychological Society (APS).

All clients are required to pay the gap fee (e.g., Medicare: $65) at the time of their visit. HICAPS, EFTPOS and Credit card facilities are available. Eligible rebates can be processed at the time of payment.

Coaching Packages

Fees for coaching packages can be negotiated and will incur gst if being invoiced to and paid for by your employer or business. 

Speaking / Workshops

Competitive fees are determined by duration and locality. Contact Room for Positive Change for associated discussions.

Cancellations

24 hours notice is required for cancellations or changes to appointment times. This policy better accommodates waiting lists and permits re-booking of the available time. Less than 24 hours notice may incur a full cancellation fee of $190.

Please note that even with a Health Care Plan, cancellation fees cannot be claimed through Medicare or your private health care fund.
