  •  Some Saturday morning appointments are available although no bulk billing sessions are available on a Saturday
  • Appointments are available during and after business hours
  • Once your referral has been received via fax or email, an appointment will be promptly offered
  • Counselling appointments are available without referral for all clients including international clients although they are not permitted to claim a Medicare rebate
  • Session fee is $155.60 and with a referral from your Medical Practitioner, you will receive $77.80 rebate from Medicare on the day of your appointment

Please note: Counselling is not offered for concerns with drug or alcohol issues or family violence as these are outside of the expertise offered by this practice.

Medicare will assist with fees for clients based in Australia

Some tips on how to get a referral for counselling:

  • Make an appointment with your Medical Practitioner and tell the Receptionist you need an appointment to get a referral for counselling.
  • Many Medical Practitioners prefer to fax your referral so take this fax number (02 6013 9646) with you to your appointment. You may choose to fax or email the referral yourself. If so, fax your referral to 02 6013 9646 OR you can email the referral to [email protected]
  • It is necessary to provide the referral to Rhonda Emonson  at Mediation, Coaching and Counselling at least 3 days prior to your first session so that a file can be made up for you prior to your first session.
  • If more than one person is attending the session, each will need their own referral faxed or emailed prior to the first appointment.

How many sessions?

If you have a referral from a Medical Practitioner, the amount of sessions will depend on what they recommend. Generally, plan for about six sessions once a fortnight, although it is often possible to have many more sessions if needed.

Each person is different, there are no rules about the number of sessions. All sessions are for 50 minutes in duration, unless there are several people attending - on those occasions a 'double session' is booked and charged and EACH person attending needs their own referral.

If you are experiencing financial difficulty, please let me know and you may be bulk billed + pay a small fee.
