Dr Gates is a registered psychologist and therapist you may be entitled for a rebate under the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS), refund under your Private Health Funds or WorkCover or other insurance.

In accordance with the MBS you are entitled to 10 individual psychology sessions per calendar year with a referral from your General Practitioner or Psychiatrist.  Please obtain a referral in the form of a Medical Health Care Plan prior to your first appointment.

Private Health Funds may cover psychology services under ancillary benefits.  Please check with your health funds to determine your entitlement and what you can claim each year.


Fees for each service are payable at the completion of each session.  Fees are commensurate with the Australian Psychological Society recommended rates and change annually in line with CPI and industry guidelines.


I appreciate a minimum of 2 days’ notice if you need to reschedule or cancel to avoid incurring a fee of the full hourly rate as it is rarely possible to fill a cancelled appointment at short notice.
