    Hi SLSTR,

    This is a great question and I'm glad you're seeking help.

    Just to clarify, is this 190$ before your Medicare Rebate or after? Some psychologists have a gap fee of 190$ and others require you to pay 190$ up front but then out of pocket would be much lower. This could be worth checking if you haven't already.

    Unfortunately we can't recommend individual places here but often places come up if you search online. If I search 'couples counselling bulk-bill online' there's a couple that come up.

    The other thing I can suggest is to look at is Relationships Australia as they have locations all across the country. While they do mention a lot of different things, they also do general couples counselling. The fees vary around Australia but can be as low as 30$ with a concession card. If you go on this website and click on your state you can find out more-

    Hope this helps and best of luck in finding the right fit.
