appointments and fees - qualia psychology


Our fee structure at Qualia Psychology is as follows:


Initial appointment $260 | Subsequent appointments $230

With a GP referral/Mental Health Care Plan, you will have access to a Medicare rebate of $137.05 for each session.

Out of pocket cost is $122.95 for an initial appointment and $92.95 for subsequent appointments

Consultations with Dione are 50 minutes long.

Dione is registered with the Department of Veteran Affairs. Current and former full-time members of the ADF are eligible for treatment of any mental health condition with a DVA gold card or white card (Some limits apply for white card holders). All services provided to veterans will be billed directly to DVA, with no out of pocket expenses.

For your convenience we offer both in-person and telehealth (video call) appointments.


You do not need a referral to see a psychologist. However, if you would like to claim Medicare rebates for psychology sessions, you will need a Mental Health Care Plan Referral from your GP. Psychiatrists and paediatricians can also provide Mental Health Care Plan Referrals. This will entitle you to claim rebates for 10 sessions per calendar year.

Please note that 10 sessions usually serves as an introduction to therapy, and treatment usually goes beyond 10 sessions, particularly Schema Therapy which is a longer-term therapy.


Some private health funds offer rebates for psychology services. The amount of the rebate depends on your level of cover. Most private health funds require you to pay for your session upfront, and they reimburse you upon production of the receipt from your session.

Pleas note that you cannot claim both Medicare and private health fund rebates for the same session.


We understand that life can be busy and that you may need to reschedule your appointment from time to time. We do our best to be flexible, but please note that we require 48 hours' notice to reschedule or cancel an appointment.

The following fees will be charged for non-attendance or cancellation with less than 48 hours notice:

  • If for some reason you need to cancel or postpone your appointment, no cancellation fee is charged if you provide more than 48 hours' notice.
  • If less than 24 hours' notice is given a cancellation fee of $50 will be charged.
  • For cancellations on the day of an appointment or non-attendance, the full session fee will be charged.

This policy is in place to allow for us to offer the allocated time to another client who may be on a cancellation or waiting list for an appointment.
