How much does testing cost ?
We believe in fair pricing and improving the accessibility of psychological assessment in Perth. As such, we generally do not make a profit on the actual test. Rather, you simply pay us for our time spent on administering, scoring and reporting the test in addition to the cost price of the actual instrument.
Do we pay for testing as part of our counselling session?
While we do use a lot of short simple tests during our therapy and counselling work, these are counted as part of our session and incur no extra fees. In certain cases, we might recommend a particular psychometric test (e.g. personality testing or testing for a particular diagnosis) if we feel it is necessary as part of your treatment or if you have a particular concern in an area. You will never be forced or required to take any test or assessment as part of counselling and/or therapy with us.
What is the typical testing process?
There are many different tests and many different administration methods. Some tests can be done online or on an iPad or phone even, some have to be done by pen and paper. Most tests have to be done in the presence of a psychologist or similarly qualified person while some can be completed at home. Ultimately, it depends on the test and the instructions and guidelines provided by the test publisher. Do note that most tests are copyrighted and we cannot simply provide you with a a copy or purchase one for you, this would be both illegal and highly unethical.
