Fees: Seeking psychological therapy is an investment in your long-term mental health.  Sean's fees are comparable to other therapists with similar experience and training.  Sean is a private billing Clinical Psychologist and a gap fee applies to all sessions.  Due to the specialised nature of treatment, Sean does not bulk bill.  If you wish to consult a bulk-billing Generalist Psychologist, please consult the Australian Psychological Society Find a Psychologist Service.  Get in touch for the current fee schedule.
