Our Approach

At Laburnum Psychology we believe in the power of relationships. Your health and wellbeing is at the core of what we do. 

Every person - and the issues that bring them to therapy - is unique. That’s why at Laburnum Psychology we provide a personalised program that’s specifically tailored to your needs.

All of our psychologists are caring, open and positive.  They will build rapport and trust in you to provide the best support for your therapy.

Our psychologists are experienced in working with many common psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, life transition, family relationships, trauma and addiction. 

Our aim is to support your positive health and wellbeing.  We want you to leave therapy feeling happier and at peace - with your life and your future. 

Our approach is a balance between achieving immediate symptom relief whilst also understanding the origins of the problem and the steps towards long term lasting change.  

All of our psychologists have a minimum of ten years’ experience as a psychologist prior to commencing in private practice. You can be confident you’re in good hands.

At Laburnum Psychology we celebrate progress, outcomes and change and strongly believe that it is a privilege to share in your personal journey.

Fee Structure

At Laburnum Psychology we provide high-quality care and support at a price that’s affordable.

We don’t believe in prolonging therapy unnecessarily and aim to help you positively progress in the least amount of sessions possible. However we do offer long term therapy if required.

If your General Practitioner (GP) has provided you with a Mental Health Care Plan, the out of pocket expense will be $55 dollars, once you claim the Medicare rebate.  You can attend up to ten rebated sessions per calendar year.

If you do not have a Mental Health Care Plan our fee per session is $180.  If you have private health insurance, you may be able to claim some of these costs.

We accept EFT and credit card facilities for payment, and we can process your Medicare claim on the spot. Make sure you have registered your bank details with Medicare so the rebate can be paid directly to you.
