We are registered with all major health insurance funds. Please contact your insurance fund to discuss rebates as this depends on your individual level of cover.
Scheduled appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.
We do not require a referral to see you. However, if you are eligible for the Medicare Rebate under the Better Access Scheme, you will need a formal referral from a GP or Psychiatrist to claim the rebate. Please bring a copy of the referral when attending first session.
