A Little Something About Us....
We tried to find available, affordable, and cool psychologists whom we connected with. We quickly found out that they were either not available until a few months later, on the other side of town and there was no time to get to sessions, or not affordable because of financial circumstances (some of us need to feed our kids!).
We started Good Minds because we were once struggling ourselves and wanted to feel Good ASAP.
Therefore, out of hours, 7 days a week is very common for us.
Since telehealth started, it has made it easier for clients to reach out to us, not having to lug their backsides to the couch of a psychologist, they could be at a park, in their cars, on a break from work, or at home in their PJs to name a few scenarios.
That allowed our Good Minds psychologists to also be flexible as well, setting their own hours of operations and availability.
We believe that everyone deserves accessible mental health care! We don’t charge gap fees for sessions during 9-5pm and we bulk bill through Medicare!
Remote sessions; phone or video it’s your choice
20 sessions per calendar year covered by Medicare (with a valid Mental Health Care Plan from your GP). No out of pocket expenses*

Finding it hard to find affordable registered psychologists? We know, we’ve been there too, and when you find one, they are either not available until a few months later or life has gotten a hold of our finances! Well, Good Minds hopes to provide you with sessions NOW and we fully bulk bill, no gap fees for sessions.
Medicare covers 20 free sessions for each calendar year
Under Medicare, with a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP, you are eligible for 6 sessions initially. If you require additional treatment, you can seek a further 4 sessions from your GP. Due to Covid-19, Medicare allows another set of 10 sessions which would require you to seek another GP referral.
No Medicare or have used up the 20 free sessions?
Without MHCP, each session will cost $90 for a registered psychologist, $130 for a clinical psychologist. We try to keep our fees affordable.
We understand that sometimes sh*t happens, so please try to give us advanced notice of greater than 24 hours, otherwise we will have to charge you $50 (+cc fees) for the missed session.
