Making An Appointment

Making an appointment to see our Psychologist Mr. Harvey can be facilitated through phone or email.  The office is open Monday to Thursday and is closed Friday to Sunday.

The first consultation is 50-60 minutes in duration.  Future sessions will be negotiated with your treating psychologist.

You do not need a referral to make an appointment, however if you do have a regular GP it would be helpful for them to write a short letter or provide a GP Mental Health Care Plan.

Fees and Rebates 

Counselling appointments at Links Psychology are $150, this is for initial and ongoing, individual sessions.  We also provide couples counselling at $160 per session.  If you have a GP Mental Health Care Plan then we can process the Medicare rebate of $96.65 for you at the time of your consult.  Please let us know if you are a concession, health care or pension card holder.

Links Psychology is also registered to see clients through Workcover, TAC, VOCAT and State Trustees.  We also see clients under the NDIS via a third party provider, if you are self or plan managed.  Please contact us to discuss this option further.

If you are requiring a medico-legal report/psychological assessment the fee structure is different, please call us to liaise with you further in this regard.  This can also be undertaken with third parties if requested.  

**Fee increase - Effective 1/7/24**

At Links Psychology we strive to make counselling accessible and affordable to all our clients, keeping fees lower than other providers.  It has now been over five years since our last fee increase and unfortunately, we can no longer absorb the increasing overhead costs of running the business. 

Our fees will therefore be increasing effective 1/7/24, to:

  • Individual counselling – $150
  • Couples counselling – $160
  • Psychological Assessment (for report purposes) - $170
  • Concession rate (non-Medicare) - $100

We are pleased to be able to continue to offer bulk billing to clients with a concession, pension or health care card, who have a current GP Mental Health Care Plan.  There will be no change to how we process Medicare rebates, private health claims, DVA, Workcover, VOCAT, EAP or NDIS invoices.

To assist in managing increasing demand on our services and reduce non-attendance we are also introducing a $50 booking fee for all new clients.  This is payable on booking and must be received prior to the first consultation.   

Please feel free to discuss these changes with Harvey or myself if you are currently facing financial difficulties or have any other queries. Kind regards Links Psychology Team.
