When receiving psychological services, you have certain rights that are important for you to understand. Therapy addresses issues of a highly personal nature and it is important for the success of treatment that you have confidence in your psychologist's ability to manage your personal information responsibly.
With the exception of certain specific exceptions described below, you have the absolute right to confidentiality of your information. You are assured that all personal information gathered by your psychologist during the provision of the psychological service will remain confidential and secure. However, it is important to know there are exceptions in which all psychologists are mandated (by law)
to disclose certain information. This can occur when:
1. The information is subpoenaed (officially requested) by a court of law
2. Failure to disclose the information would place you or another person at serious risk of harm
Fees are $190 per 50 minute session or $155 per sessions for concession card holders. You will receive a rebate of $128.40 if you have a current Mental Health Care Plan. Healthy Minds referrals (if you are eligible for one) are fully bulk billed. Private health funds offer a range of rebates.
