Willow Tree Counselling is a safe place where you will be warmly welcomed and listened to and where we can explore what has brought you to counselling

Fees

My fee is $150 per hour for individual counselling. Please contact me for fees for service providers, Supervision, Groups, Education Session, training and EMDR.

 

You do not need a referral to attend counselling, however, if you would like to access one of the schemes below you will need to follow the outlined process.

 

You may be entitled to the following schemes:

 

Victims Services – I am an approved Victims Services Counsellor. This means that if you have been a victim of a violent crime such as domestic violence, sexual assault etc you may be entitled to free counselling through this scheme. Please contact me to discuss this further or alternatively look at the Victims Services website where you are able to request me as your counsellor.

 

Medicare – I am registered with the Better Access Scheme. To access this scheme means that you need a referral from your Doctor. You are initially entitled to six sessions and then an additional four if your Doctor approves this. What this means is that you are entitled to a Medicare rebate of $84.80 after you have paid your $150.00. Your Medicare rebate may take a few days to arrive in your account.

 

If you have a current Health Care card I provide a limited number of bulk billed places (if you are not entitled to Victims Services) which means that you are not charged. Please contact me to discuss bulk billing availability.

 

Please check with your Private Health Insurance if you are eligible to claim your visit to a Psychologist.

 

I am approved to provide Work Cover services and accept Work Cover matters for matters related to Post traumatic stress. Your Doctor will need to provide a referral to me.

 

Please bring your referral, Medicare card or private health insurance card if applicable.

I ask that you provide 24 hours notice of cancellations.
