You may be eligible for a psychology rebate from Medicare or from your private health fund (see the rebates section below). If rebates apply, we can process these in the Bondi clinic.
The prices below are for individual therapy and couple’s therapy from The Bondi Psychologist clinic or virtual counselling via Skype. Rachael Walden can also provide reports for forensic purposes.
Fees start from your appointment time. If you are running late, you will have a reduced session time as we generally have clients booked in each hour. If you wish to extend your session and it is possible for us to do so, the rate will be pro-rated. We accept cash, EFTPOS and credit card.

You may be eligible for a psychology rebate for your therapy sessions from Medicare or your private health insurer.
To arrange Medicare-subsidised psychology sessions in Sydney and New South Wales, you first need a referral from a GP. Your doctor will assess your mental health and determine if you are eligible to access funding under the Medicare scheme for psychological services.
If your doctor provides a referral, you will be placed on a Mental Health Care Plan that provides up to 10 subsidised therapy sessions per calendar year. You will receive a rebate of up to $84.80 per psychological session. Medicare rebates are paid directly into your bank account soon after your session so you will need to cover the fee upfront on the day of your appointment.
You can make a direct appointment with The Bondi Psychologist without needing a doctor’s referral. In this case if you have private health insurance, depending on your fund you may be eligible for a rebate from them. We have HICAPS in our Bondi clinic and can process your rebate on the spot. Please consult your private health insurer for further information about whether you’re covered for psychological treatment and how much you can claim.
If you don’t have private health insurance and you need assistance to cover your mental health treatment, you will need the referral from your GP to access a Mental Health Care Plan.
