Appointments & fees
All appointments for existing and new clients are made through our main Strathlink Clinic.
We provide appointments weekdays and after hours along with before & after school appointments.
During COVID19, we are no longer providing consultations in medical centres but are offering Telehealth / eCounselling options for clients.
Following recovery from COVID19 we will return to work alongside our mental health trained GPs in their clinics at Brighton, Strathpine, Aspley, Narangba, Kedron and North Lakes.
Good for you to know
All services are provided in accordance with the Australian Psychological Society Code of Ethics and Professional Practice and all our Psychologists are tertiary trained and registered Psychologists with AHPRA. Our Accredited Mental Health Social Worker is a member of the AASW.
GP Mental Health Care Plan
If you have been referred by your GP and you have a current GP Mental Health Care Plan, a Medicare rebate will apply to your session.
A GP Mental Health Care Plan allows you to access a Medicare rebate for up to 20 individual therapy sessions per calendar year, and attend up to 10 group therapy sessions per calendar year. Of course you can access more than 20 individual psychology sessions in a year, and more than 10 group therapy sessions in a year, just be mindful that after 20 individual sessions and 10 group sessions, you will need to access your private health fund or pay for sessions privately until your Medicare rebate resets on January 1st each year.
We find that people get a great deal of benefit from complimenting their individual therapy sessions with additional group therapy sessions.
We encourage you to fully invest in your psychological treatment by taking full advantage of your group therapy options.
For your comfort and reassurance, we work closely with your GP and referring doctor, providing a collaborative partnership with your GP. Following your doctor’s referral, our Psychologists will work with your doctor, providing a co-ordinated approach to your health and well-being and keeping your doctor informed of your treatment and progress.
You are welcome to request a specific Psychologist, depending on their area of interest or your doctor’s referral. Alternatively, you may wish to ask for the earliest available appointment with one of our Today's Psychology Psychologists.
We appreciate life can be uncertain at times, so we strive to provide flexible and timely appointments. If you require an earlier appointment than has been scheduled, please contact us and we will try to accommodate your request.
Typically, appointments are scheduled for 50 minutes, including the initial consultations and subsequent appointments. This allows a suitable amount of time for your Psychologist to get to know you and your concerns and together, determine how therapy may be able to help you.
Treatment for everyone!
We are passionate about providing high quality, positive outcome psychological treatment for everyone in our community.
A number of our Psychologists offer a limited number of reduced fee consultations for people in genuine financial hardship or for clients currently on a Pension.
Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your personal circumstances.
The cost of your appointment and the Medicare rebate will vary depending on the type of referral you have and the therapist you see.
With a current GP Mental Health Care Plan, you may be eligible for a Medicare rebate of $128.40 when you see a Clinical Psychologist or $87.45 when you see a Consultant Psychologist or $77.00 when you see an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. Without a GP Mental Health Care Plan, you may be able to claim through your private health insurance or pay privately for your appointment. Please check with your private health insurer with regards to your rebate.
Payment is required at the time of your consultation. We accept payment by cash, bank transfer (payment required prior to consultation), EFTPOS and credit card. With a current GP Mental Health Care Plan, Medicare rebates are processed immediately, allowing your rebate to be transferred back into your bank account following your appointment using our HICAPS machine.
Fees for neuropsychological assessments, cognitive testing and reports are not usually covered by Medicare. Fees for all neuropsychological assessments and reports will be discussed and negotiated prior to booking your assessment.
