Play Therapy Services and Fees.
Initial Parent(s) Consultation:
$250 per consultation.
This consultation is an opportunity for you to share your concerns, and to learn about play therapy and how it might assist your child. An assessment of your child's developmental history will be completed, and you will be provided with information regarding Play Therapy, the benefits and risks, consent, confidentiality and privacy procedures, and practical considerations for your child when attending sessions. You will also be able to familiarise yourself with the clinic and play therapy room as well. This session usually takes 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. If play therapy is assessed as suitable for the child, a regular session time is allocated.
Play Therapy Sessions:
$120 per session.
Sessions usually run for 45 minute sessions, though may be shorter depending on developmental needs of child, particularly for younger children (under 4 years). Sessions occur in a specially designed playroom, with a range of toys selected for therapeutic value and capacity to promote expression. Sessions are scheduled at the same time and day each week to promote stability and security for your child.
Parent Consultation Sessions:
$120 per hour.
Regular parent sessions provide a valuable opportunity for sharing insights, developing strategies and ensuring that families are supported throughout the process. Much can be done by parents to ensure that positive change is consolidated in the home and beyond. Parent sessions occur separately from child therapy sessions, usually every 4-6 weeks, and may be completed in person or by phone or email.
Payment is required on the day of service unless otherwise negotiated and a tax invoice will be given to you on receipt of payment. Please understand that due to the demand for session times, 24 hours notice is required if a consultation or therapy session is cancelled, and the full fee may be charged if less than 24 hours notice is given.
