Bookings

Thanks for reaching out!

Please be aware that we have no onsite administration, so we may not be able to address your query straight away.

We do not provide emergency care, and it may take a little while for us to get back to you.

If you would like to enquire about making a booking, please use our Contact Form.

One of us will get back to you to discuss your therapeutic needs, and explain how our appointments work in more detail.

In most cases, you will be on a waiting list of a few weeks to a few months' duration for treatment. We are not normally able to accommodate urgent referrals. While the length of the wait is often unpredictable, we will provide you with an estimate of the waiting times.

Please leave a contact number and your availability so that one of us can get back to you. We will try to get back to you within a few weeks.

Clinic hours

We have evening and weekend appointments available in addition to appointments during business hours, however, these appointments are in high demand, and normally have much longer waiting lists that our business hours appointments.

* Note that there is a minimal cost difference between a general and a clinical psychologist over the course of treatment. We therefore recommend choosing your therapist for the best fit, not the best bargain.

Please note we are not able to offer Bulkbilled services.

A very limited number of hardship rate arrangements are available. These must meet specific criteria, be discussed and approved prior to appointment, and are subject to availability.

Hardship rates may be available to clients who are:

  • in genuine need of psychological support
  • suffering genuine and significant financial hardship (i.e. unemployed or pensioner status).

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.

If you wish to explore and apply for a reduced-fee arrangement please address the above criteria in writing and submit via our Contact Form.
