How much will it cost?

The most common way people see a psychologist is with a Mental Health Care Plan, which can be obtained from your GP.  


As of October 2019, session fees are $145 (with a valid concession card) or $170 (full fee).  With a MHCP, you can obtain a rebate of $126.50 per session, leaving you out of pocket $18.50 (concession) or $43.50 (full fee).  Please note that fees are subject to change.


Payment is due on the day of session by EFTPOS or credit card.   Cash is not accepted.


There is a $100 cancellation fee if you fail to provide 24 hours notice of cancellations, or if you do not attend on the day.  This fee is not claimable under Medicare.

How do I book an appointment?

Simply click on the "Book Now" button at the bottom of this page or call the mobile number.  


If you book online you will be able to see the available days and times, and a confirmation will be received.  You will be asked to fill out a registration form, either online or at your first appointment.


For new clients, it is recommended that you book 3 appointments in a row, on consecutive weeks.  This allows you to get to know Dr Milligan (and her to get to know you!).  Subsequent appointments will likely be stretched out to fortnightly, three-weekly or monthly.  


 **NOTE: after-hours appointments tend to book out quickly.  It is recommended that you book several appointments in advance in order to guarantee appointment availability 


There is a $100 cancellation fee if you fail to provide 24 hours notice of cancellations, or if you do not attend on the day.  This fee is not claimable under Medicare.
