Bulk Billing

  • From mid March until the 1st of July, I reduced my fee from $140.00 to fully Bulk Billing all clients to support them through COVID-19. However, as we are returning to normality, in order for my practice to survive, I am no longer Bulk Billing. 


Referral Process

  • You can refer by fax or through Medical Objects.

  • I will phone the client within 24 hours to complete an intake. This includes a brief intervention. An appointment time will be agreed upon. I aim within seven to 10 days. 

  • I will contact you acknowledging the referral and advising of the appointment date.

  • I will communicate with you as required and provide an update after the sixth and tenth sessions.


I have recently undertaken a review of 30 clients that I have seen over recent months that have completed six sessions.
