    Default Cost of ongoing counselling?

    I know the first 6 sessions are covered by medicare, but does anyone know how much a session after would approximately cost?

    Ask for ATAHPS (sp?) referral from your GP. It gives you more funded sessions.

    After six sessions you can actually go back to your referring gp for a review and can get another 4 sessions (10 total per calendar year). The session cost can vary quite a bit after that - from around $100 to $200 or so.

    There are a couple of "low cost" clinics around. In Melbourne for example, there is one at swinburne and one at Monash. I think they are run with post grad students and supervisors. They run similar to a community health centre where they cap a fee and base your fee on your income. I think swinburne is $60 (max) a session. You don't need a referral either. You could Google low cost counseling in your area and see what comes up
