📌 Counselling in person is only available at the Noosaville Clinic (not Brisbane). Online counselling is Australia-wide.
Your First Appointment - Bulk Billed
Psychology Centre (Qld) will bulk-bill your first counselling appointment, if referred by a GP. This allows for you to 'try before you buy' and to check if Marlene and/or counselling, is the right fit for your needs. Please note: If you have forgotten to bring your GP referral and Medicare card, the usual full fee of $175 will apply.
To receive Medicare rebates, including your one fully bulk-billed consultation, you must be referred by your GP or psychiatrist. You will usually need to book a longer session with your GP to obtain this referral.
Medicare rebates do not cover the entire cost of your subsequent sessions and there will be a gap to pay, as stated above.
Private Health Funds
Various funds offer rebates for psychological counselling services. Check with your health fund for more information. You will be emailed a receipt from Psychology Centre, within 24 hours after your appointment, to present to your health fund.
Individuals receiving workers compensation may be covered for psychological counselling sessions. Please contact your insurer to see if this is available to you. If you have a pending or approved claim, Marlene Graham can contact your provider to ascertain how many sessions you are entitled to.
