Fees and Referrals

Appointments can be booked by emailing

You may wish to contact your GP to discuss a referral for a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). The MHCP entitles you to a rebate of $77.80 from Medicare for up to twenty sessions in a calendar year.

During the pandemic if you have a MHCP, the Government has currently approved Medicare rebates for Telehealth counselling sessions.

The MHCP can be addressed to Mind Wellness Therapy. To ensure eligibility for a Medicare rebate, you will need to provide a MHCP and a letter of referral from your GP. Some private health funds also offer rebates for psychological services. Please speak to your provider about this.

Mind Wellness Therapy also accept referrals from other sources, including Open Arms, National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) if you are plan-managed or self-managed and WorkCover Qld.


Mind Wellness Therapy fee for service is $180 for a 50 minute session or $230 for 80 minute session. Payment is required at the time of your session and can be made via credit card. A reduced fee may be negotiated for individuals on a low income if you have a MHCP and are struggling financially. Please discuss this with your therapist when booking your appointment.

Other payment options

If you wish to undertake therapy via video or phone and do not have a Mental Health Care Plan, you can choose to pay privately or you may have funding through an organisation such as NDIS or Open Arms, etc. If you have private health insurance, you may wish to check that your provider covers video or phone consultations. If you have any questions or concerns about video or phone counselling, please don’t hesitate to phone Suzanne on 0411826343.


Mind Wellness Therapy keeps a waiting list of clients who require earlier appointments, so we will always make good use of cancelled appointment slots as they occur.  However, clients on the waiting list also require notice to make arrangements to attend.  Therefore, if you need to reschedule an appointment, please provide at least 48 hours notice to avoid a $100 cancellation fee. If a cancellation is made within 24 hours of your appointment, the full session fee will be applied.
