Welcome to Urban Psychology

Our mission is to offer approachable, high quality, affordable, and accessible psychology services for individuals and couples.

We strive to be welcoming, authentic, sensitive, and knowledgeable.

We are passionate about change and base our service on the belief that each client's needs are unique and of the utmost importance.

We believe in excellence rather than perfection. We won't fix everything for you or tell you that you can achieve infinite happiness. What we will do is collaborate with you and contribute positively to empower you to overcome adversity and approach the challenges of life with greater ease.

We enjoy ongoing professional development so that we are equipped to help a diverse range of clients find workable solutions to a wide range of issues.

We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you a psychology service that is tailored to your needs.

If we cannot assist you, we will help you find services that can.

Join the practice of wellbeing.

Fees & Rebates

Private Health Rebates
Private health rebates are available from most funds.

Medicare Rebates
A doctor's referral is not necessary to see a psychologist but medicare rebates are available for clients referred by a GP or Psychiatrist.

Payment Methods
We accept cash or cheque. We do not provide EFTPOS facilities. There are ample ATMs located throughout Toowong Village which our office is located above. You may use our secure online Paypal facility to pay using credit card but only if you arrange this with us first.

Bulk Billing
Bulk Billing is available for those who are referred by a GP or Psychiatrist under a Mental Health Care Plan and have a current Health Care Card. This card must be sighted and validated.

Fee Schedule
The recommended fee until 30 June 2010 for a standard one hour psychological consultation, as set by the Australian Psychological Society, is $206.00. To make psychology services more accessible, my current fee is $180.00 for your comprehensive 80 minute initial assessment, and then $140.00 for each 50+minute consultation after that. If you have a referral from your GP or psychiatrist, you will receive $78.40 back from Medicare for each session.

Couples attract a higher fee due to the greater amount of work involved in sessions.

If fees will be an obstacle to your using my services, please discuss this with me.

If your fees are being paid for you by another person, organisation or government scheme, it is your responsibility to confirm that they have accepted to do this. If they do not pay, then you will be liable for the fees.

We can also provide home visits, Skype [real time internet videoconferencing] or telephone consults.

Go to Level 1 Toowong Village. To the right of Pillow Talk there is a set of lifts. Take the lift to Level 5. Reception is right outside the lift foyer.
