COMMITTED TO YOUR FAMILY YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH AND WELLBEING IS MY PRIORITY

One of the main reasons many parents put off seeking professional help for their child is uncertainty around how much it costs. I provide transparent and affordable psychologist fees to help parents and caregivers get the support they need and know upfront how much my services cost.

Psychology services can be accessed under a number of referral pathways and funding models, including the Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative (Mental Health Care Plans, MHCP), Helping Children with Autism (HCWA), private health, self-referral, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and more (government departments, community agencies, schools and work cover).

PSYCHOLOGIST FEES

Dot Connect QLD recognises that everyone should have the right to access therapy, and although it is not a bulk-billing clinic, a small number of clients can be bulk-billed capacity at the discretion of the clinic. 

 

All psychologist fees are in line with recommendations from the Australian Psychological Society and other organisations, such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
