What does counselling cost?
We have several therapists that provide counselling and each one offers different fees depending on your situation. You can pay privately and that way nobody needs to really know you visited. Or you might like to get a rebate from your private health insurance, or from Medicare. If you see a psychologist and you have something like depression or anxiety, then your GP can provide a mental health plan and that will give you a great rebate which is usually more than private health insurance. Sometimes psychologists can see you for bulk billed rates, which means you only need a Medicare Card when you visit. If you are really going through a tough time and are broke, just ask when you book online or call 1800 877 924 and explain to the receptionist that you need a lower rate.
You might like to see a Counsellor for a free emotional check-up for 30 mins to chat about your situation and see what’s the best thing. If you can get to the clinic on your own at Mt Gravatt then you can drop by and meet a counsellor at the clinic and get some ideas about seeing someone for counselling. If you want to bring your parents then that’s ok too! Or sometimes you might have a friend in trouble and you don’t know what to do next. Friendship is really important and confidentiality can help to make things easier to discuss what is happening.
We have psychology professionals based out of two convenient locations on Brisbane’s southside:
