$220 for the initial consultation and,

$180 per subsequent session.

The fees for after hours (4.30pm onwards on weekdays) and weekend sessions with Sherry are;

$240 for the initial consultation and,

$200 per subsequent session.

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.
