    Fees per Session for Private Client    

    The cost of treatment sessions is $135 per session, which is lower than that recommended by the Australian Psychological Society. Fees are payable at the time of consultation. Cash is only the accepted form of payment.   You do not need a referral for an appointment (unless you are coming under the Medicare scheme),    so just call 0413302601 or 02 9825 8737 about appointment times or Email: shirinsteev@whpsychologyservices.com.au

    Medicare Rebate

    Medicare covers $84.60 per 45 minutes session for a maximum of 10 sessions per calendar year if you have a referral (Mental Health Treatment Plan) from your local doctor. This means you do not pay for professional assistance. If you already have a Mental Health Treatment Plan referral for another clinician, it is not transferrable and you can change to seeing us by getting another plan from your treating GP. Please bring a copy of the referral on your appointment. Please feel free to contact us if you require more information about Medicare rebates.

    Fees for a Report

    The cost of a report varies depending on the time it takes to prepare, it ranges from $330 to $550 including GST.

Information shared and discussed in all sessions are highly confidential and your information will not be disclosed to anyone without your consent.

Exemptions in maintaining confidentiality will be discussed during initial sessions. For instance, situations where there is potential harm to yourself or others or if law demands it, Shirin has a duty of care to disclose the information. Yet before disclosing to another party, Shirin will discuss any concerns of this nature with you as she is bound to confidentiality.
