With Social Justice Principles in mind, and our clients ability to pay, we have a sliding fee scale based on your income.

Generally our fees range from $75 to $130 and a fee of $55 for students and persons on low income or who are unemployed.

Our fees therefore are significantly lower than the Psychological and Social Work Professional bodies recommended hourly fees of $ 145 and $ 180.
