Please note: The current rate recommended by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) for psychological services for individuals is $222 for 46-60 mins and $273 for 61-75 mins. Despite there being valid reasons for these rates, I currently charge below the APS rates in all categories, in order to make my services more affordable to more people.
