Criteria for Applying for Reduced-Fee Arrangements

Please note I am not able to offer Bulk Billed services and there are currently no hardship rate spaces available.

Hardship rate arrangements must meet specific criteria, are subject to availability and must be discussed and approved prior to booking your initial appointment.

Hardship rates may be available to clients who are:

  • In genuine need of psychological support
  • In genuine need of psychological support
  • Suffering genuine and significant financial hardship (i.e., unemployed or pensioner).

Hardship rates are a reduced fee arrangement applicable during the time of significant hardship. This means that there is still some (reduced) out of pocket expense for each appointment, even with a Medicare referral. It also means that when the hardship passes, normal fees will be reinstated.
