Some Housekeeping Details For You
In order to keep our services accessible to as many people as possible, Men & Relationships Counselling charges a fee that is about two thirds of the rate recommended by the Australian Psychological Society.
Fee schedule is for face to face, online and telephone consultations.
Some flexibility in fee schedule may be available for those in financial difficulty. Please discuss with your MRC Consultant
Counselling sessions are approximately 50 minutes in duration (the therapeutic hour).
Payments for face face consultations are made at the time of consultation unless specifically negotiated with your MRC Consultant prior to the appointment.
Payments can be made by credit card, cheque or cash. A receipt will be issued by your consultant at the time of payment.
Payments for online or telephone consultations are to be paid via electronic funds transfer. Your MRC Consultant will provide an invoice at the conclusion of the session via text message or email.
The Medicare Mental Health Care Plan rebates require a referral from a GP or Psychiatrist. You are required to complete a Mental Health Assessment, receive a Psychiatric Diagnosis, discuss Presenting Issues and a Treatment Plan with the GP or Psychiatrist.
Alicja Wierzbowski is registered for Medicare.
Please note: Howard Todd-Collins does not accept Medicare Mental Health Care Plans or private health fund rebates.
Counselling needs to take place on a regular basis in order to be effective. Appointments, therefore, need to be consistently scheduled and regularly attended. Missed appointments can jeopardise treatment and slow the healing work.
Appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice (2 working days) will be charged a cancellation fee of the full price of a session. This policy is representative of the industry standard within the Counselling/Psychotherapy profession.
