Fee Structure

At Housman Psychology we provide a scaling fee structure to accommodate client needs. At times, you may feel a longer consultation is preferrable during Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) to assist with your healing. We have therefore 50-minute and 80-minute consultations available to cater for your needs. 80-minute consultations are scheduled at 10:30 am to 11:50 am and at 5:00 pm to 6:20 pm. EMDR consultations must be prebooked.


Fees are payable at the end of the consultation. Payment options include: Eftpos, Credit Card, Debit Card, and cash. American Express is not available.

Private Health

Private health rebates are available to clients with an eligible private health fund with clinical psychology options. Please consult your private health fund to determine eligibility.

Report Requests, Letters & Medical Certificates

Dr Jodie Housman does not provide letters, medical certificates, assessment reports or reports to third parties (E.g universities, insurance companies, Centrelink, employers, superannuation companies, Work Cover, courts, or the police) unless mandated by law.

Dr Housman works best when confidentiality is protected. Dr Housman works as a Clinical Psychologist; she does not have the forensic expertise to complete such reports. In the very rare circumstance where Dr Housman agrees to provide such a document, the Australian Psychological Society rates are charged based on the TIME used for PREPARING and COMPLETING the document.

Medicare and Bulk Billing
Medicare rebates are available to clients with an assessed mental health condition that is being managed by a GP under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan or a Psychiatrist Assessment and Management Plan. Additional Medicare rebates are available to clients with a Non-Directive Pregnancy Support Counselling referral and a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) referral. Please see Medicare section for further details.

Housman Psychology is not a bulk billing practice. If you have private health access / an eligible Medicare referral there will be an out-of-pocket expense.
