Fee for Letters/Reports

The same fee as for a standard session is charged for letters and reports.  Letters or reports are only offered when it has been agreed prior to commencement of the first session and if the client is a current client at the time of the report being completed.


Forms of Payment

Cancellation Fee

Payment of 50% of the full fee may be avoided by calling to cancel 48 hours or more prior to the appointment (this does not include weekends).  This is because the counsellor is a visiting professional to the centres where you see him.  The counsellor has no way of scheduling another client with late notice and so has no income from the cancelled appointment.  Your courtesy will avoid the necessity for a cancellation fee.


Concession

Concession rate reduces the fee to $100 each session if a current Pension or Health Card is displayed at the appointment.
