At Go Psychology, we are passionate about helping people on the Gold Coast and beyond, and have made a commitment to ensure that our psychological services are affordable.

Go Psychology is a mixed billing private practice, which means that fees are varied depending on the service that you require.

The easiest way to find out about your particular fee is to contact us and we can discuss your needs.

Our Psychologists treat clients under a variety of pathways including:

  • Medicare
  • Workers Compensation
  • Private Health Cover
  • DVA
  • VVCS
  • Private referrals

Counselling Fees

If you have a Mental Health Care Plan/referral from your General Practitioner or a valid referral from your Psychiatrist or Pediatrician you will be eligible for significant Medicare rebates and in some cases you may be eligible for bulk billing.  At present Medicare supports 10 x 50 minute sessions per calendar year.   Below is a schedule of fees that is recommended at Go Psychology, which is well below the recommended rate by the Australian Psychological Society.  Please discuss your fees with your Psychologist when making your initial booking if you have any questions.
