At Scope Psychology Services Australia, we believe in providing an affordable service for clients and aim to ensure that finances do not prevent someone from being able to access help and support when needed.  Our professional body, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) recommends $251 per 50 minute session, however our fees are substantially lower than this.


All initial appointments include a new client fee. This is a one-time fee, as follows:

  • Psychologist with Provisional Registration – $50.00
  • Psychologist with Full Registration – $80.00
  • Director with Full Registration and Area of Practice Endorsement – $80.00

All subsequent appointments are billed according to the qualifications, experience and AHPRA registration status of our practitioners, as follows:

  • Psychologist with Provisional Registration – $130.00 per hour
    (with comprehensive supervision of services and reports co-signed by a Director)
  • Psychologist with Full Registration – $170.00 per hour
  • Director with Full Registration and Area of Practice Endorsement – $190.00 per hour
  • NDIS services
    •  $214.41 per hour for a fully registered psychologist
    • $86.79 per hour for a provisionally registered psychologist or behaviour support practitioner
      (Assessment and therapeutic services only)

Reduced fees are available when packages are purchased for the SCAES targeted skill development programs.

Notes for Counselling Services.

  • Bulk-billed services are available with some of our practitioners.
  • A Medicare rebate is available with a GP referral for a mental health care plan/mental health treatment plan.
  • All fees are eligible for private health rebates. You must check that you are eligible with your fund.
  • Fees are payable at the time of consultation unless funded through NDIS or an approved third party.
  • At the conclusion of each 50-minute counselling session, please allow 10-minutes for your practitioner to complete follow-up tasks.


Notes for Assessment Services.

  • Assessment sessions and report writing hours are rounded to the nearest half hour. Fees are payable as assessments are undertaken/pay as you go.
  • The total cost of assessment ranges depending on the amount of time required. Please budget for the following amounts:
    • Renee Harrington – up to $1300.00
    • Aisling McCann – up to $1700.00
    • Danielle Copplin and Kathryn Bekavac – up to $2000.00
  • Reports will not be sent until payment for assessment is received in full.
  • If you are unable to travel to the clinic or live outside of Brisbane (including interstate and international), we offer comprehensive online telehealth and assessment services through SCAES Rural.
  • All fees are eligible for private health rebates. You must check that you are eligible with your fund.


Notes for NDIS participants.

  • We provide assessment, recommendation, therapy and training with a psychologist with full or provisional registration with AHPRA, or a behaviour support practitioner. This is funded through NDIS Therapeutic Supports.
  • NDIS participants will be required to sign a service agreement. This includes existing clients transitioning to support as an NDIS participant.
  • Services can be completed at home, school or in the workplace for NDIS clients only.
  • We are not yet registered NDIS providers, so we can only support self- or plan-managed participants.
