*Clients referred by their GP receive Medicare rebates of $84.80 for individual sessions and around $21 for group sessions. A GP referral for a mental health condition entitles clients to 6-10 Individual counselling sessions per calendar year, and up to 10 group sessions per calendar year. Discuss with Richard during your first session, or discuss with your GP prior. You must bring your medicare card and a GP referral to your first session to obtain your rebate. The Medicare rebate is for psychological counselling sessions only and is not for life coaching services.
