A WINZ Disability Allowance can be used to subsidise therapy sessions. You don't need to be on a benefit to receive a Disability Allowance, but you do need to meet income limit requirements - see Counselling - WINZ for details including the application form.


The maximum allowance is $65.36 a week. The subsidy can be used to subsidise weekly sessions or with permission of a person's case manager it can be saved over two weeks to provide a higher subsidy for fortnightly sessions. If you wish to utilise this allowance please contact Petra before booking a session to discuss.
