***we have no current capacity for new clients. CB Psychology will be reviewing capacity for new clients mid August 2024***



When you make an appointment, you make a commitment to undergo therapy and to attend the appointment reserved for you. If you become ill or if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please give 24 hours notice.  This allows us to offer your appointment to another client. A 100% cancellation fee will apply for appointments cancelled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice or if you fail to attend your appointment. Medicare rebates do not apply to cancellation fees.


Payment can be made via cash or credit card at the time of your appointment.

Medicare Rebates, Bulk-Billing and Gap Charges

Under the Medicare’s ‘Better Access To Mental Health Care‘ scheme, you may be eligible for a rebate for treatment provided by a clinical psychologist. Under this initiative, you receive a rebate of $141.85 when seeing a clinical psychologist.  This makes seeing a psychologist more affordable and accessible to all.  You pay only the gap between the rebate amount and the standard fee.  We do not offer bulk billing (no cost) services.

You must see your GP or Psychiatrist to check your eligibility for this programme.  Your doctor will work with you to create a Medicare mental health plan.  The plan enables you to access up to 10 sessions per calendar year.  You must bring your referral letter and plan to the first appointment to get the rebate. The Australian Psychological Society has produced a detailed fact sheet about the Medicare rebate, which is available here.

Private Health Funds

Many health funds will allow you to claim a rebate for psychological services.  Please check with your health fund about the amount and limits on rebates for psychological treatment.
