Medicare & insurance

Counselling and psychotherapy are not yet covered by Medicare. This has pros and cons.

One positive thing is that you don’t need a specific diagnosis or referral to become a client, and you won’t have a diagnosis listed on your medical and/or insurance record.

You may not be able to get a rebate on these counselling services (please check with your fund). However,  my fee is less than the Medicare gap fee which some practitioners charge.
