Fees & Appts


Individual consultation for psychological assessment and treatment: $210 per session. 

You will be eligible to receive a REBATE sent directly to your preferred account ($126.50 through Medicare) with a GP referral/Mental Health Care Plan. 


With a Medicare/Mental Health Care Plan referral your sessions will accrue an ‘out -of-pocket’ expense of $83.50/’the gap amount.’ 

Private Health fund rebates vary depending on your coverage (ask your health  fund about items Y100/A070 Psychological Assessment and Y200/A071 Psychological Treatment). 

Please note: the current fee remains a substantial discount from the Australian Psychological Society’s recommended rate of $251 per session. Dr Hughes will consider bulk-billing patients with a health care card or if a patient is unemployed. 

EAP, Workers Compensation, Victims of Crime, and Pre-Sentence Court Reports or any other insurance-related claim/treatment: $251 per session. Psychological Reports: per minute of $251/hr.



Clinic Hours are by appointment only: Monday 830am-730pm, Wednesday 830am-730pm, Friday 830am-730pm.

The duration of a your first assessment session is 1hr and sessions thereafter are 50 minutes (10 minutes is spent preparing your session).

Payment is required in full on the day of service via Eftpos, cash or personal cheque. HICAPS services are now available for Medicare referrals using Easyclaim/HICAPS.
