I offer an initial consultation at no charge for individual and couples counselling. This is a chance for you to decide if you feel that working with me will be valuable for you. We can set up further sessions if you find the initial consultation valuable.
However, I don’t offer a free initial consultation for partner counselling. This is because partner counselling is generally more short-term than individual counselling. If the partner counselling continues, I offer the fifth session for free.
I don’t offer a free initial consultation for online counselling. This is because online counselling is generally more anonymous than either individual or couples counselling.
The price for individual, online and partner counselling is $120 per 50 minute session.
The price for couples counselling is $145 per 50 minute session.
Some private health insurance firms offer rebates for counselling, but it depends on your plan and the provider – you will need to check with them. I have a Medibank Private provider number.
Payment terms & methods
For individual, couples and partner counselling you pay me directly at the end of the session. I accept EFTPOS, credit cards and cash.
For online counselling you pay me in advance via bank transfer or credit/debit card via PayPal (I will send you details).
In all instances, I can issue a receipt for payments via email. The receipt will use the generic term ‘counselling’, will not mention why you are in counselling and will come from firstname.lastname@example.org
Book a session with me directly by selecting a service, then clicking on the “Book Now’ button. After you make the booking, you will be taken to my other website ‘Tim Hill Psychotherapy’.
