The Australian Association of Social Workers sets a recommended schedule of fees for private practitioners. I attempt to offer a more affordable service.
Standard consultation for Individual, Couple and Family Therapy: $150/ session
Individual supervision (paid by employer) $120/hr
Individual supervision (paid by individual) $110/hr
Training preparation and delivery: Prices on application
Telephone follow up, letter writing, casework (limited) $100/hr
You may pay by EFTPOS, general credit cards, or if negotiated, by direct deposit to my bank account prior to the session. Payment is required on the day. Statements are issued promptly and these provide a payment record of your sessions.
