Obviously it depends on the qualifications and experience but if I was being counselled for purposes of treatment I would expect that amount to be paid and once more think that is about average. When I have been treated at the hospital for PTSD some of them would have been paid almost double that, and worth every penny.

However

ACC is in the habit of paying a fixed amount for a fixed number of sessions with the expectation that the patient will no longer need treatment at the end of the treatment plan. For this arrangement the ACC does pay a significantly higher sum which acts as a motivator for the counseller to declare their patient cured together with the templated report answering the ACCs questions that have been asked as being the primary outcome to the block session.
