Sherry aims to provide an affordable psychological service for people in the Perth area. The current recommended fee by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) is $254. The fees for the sessions with Sherry are $180 per session and will need to be paid on the day of the consultation. (The deposit for the first appointment is paid at the time of booking). The centre is a private billing practice and therefore no bulk billing services are available as the fee is already significantly reduced from the recommended fee. Please see the rebates sections for Medicare and Private Health Rebates.
Referral via GP- Medicare rebates are available under a Mental Health Care Plan for the Better Access to Mental Health Care Initiative. People eligible for this plan can get a rebate for between 6 and 10 sessions per calendar year. Please speak to your GP if you would like a Mental Health Care Plan. The rebate available is approximately $86, which will leave you out of pocket approximately $94.

Some private health fund rebates may be available depending on your level of cover. Please check with you private health fund whether or not you are covered and what the rebate would be. Please note: You cannot claim both the Medicare rebate and a private health rebate for the same session.
