Fees are charged to clients as per the following discounted rates. These fees are significantly below those recommended by the Australian Psychological Society (currently $235.00). Fees cover not only face-to-face time with clients but also brief phone consults (see below), referral calls, consultation with other health professionals where appropriate, and correspondence.
PLEASE NOTE: the focus of Diana’s practice is on the provision of psychological treatment. She does not undertake medico-legal assessments or reports for other purposes.
No referral is required unless you wish to claim a Medicare rebate.
Standard Session Fee
The standard fee per session (50 minutes) is:
With Medicare referral $180

Diana does provide consideration for concession card holders.
Diana does offer phone consultations and skype sessions for current clients. These sessions will be charged at the same rate as face-to-face sessions. This said Diana is aware that at times clients will benefit from short coaching or supportive telephone consultations and calls up to 15 minutes will not incur a fee.
Payment is expected in full at the time of consultation. Payments can be made by cash, credit card (Mastercard, Visa) and EFTPOS. Credit cards will incur a 1% surcharge.
Medicare rebates can be claimed directly following your appointment. Please ensure you bring your Medicare and debit cards if you wish to participate.
