TMS Treatment Cost


TMS Treatment Cost

At Sydney TMS we tailor the treatment protocol to your specific needs. The two main conditions we treat are Major Depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). We also treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, otherwise known as PTSD. 


To book in for an initial consultation, you will need your medicare card and a doctor’s referral. An initial assessment will be conducted by one of our Sydney TMS psychiatrists. During this assessment, the doctor will advise you whether TMS is a good treatment option for you. This assessment is bulk billed. Please allow an hour for this assessment.

If our psychiatrist recommends TMS treatment for you and you are happy to continue, a mapping session will be carried out. This can occur during the initial consultation if you want to go ahead. If during the initial consultation there is insufficient time we will organise a 30 minute session with you for your mapping.

A treatment course of TMS consists of approximately 30 sessions and for most clients each treatment session takes approximately 30 minutes. If you would like to enquire about the TMS treatment costs we can discuss that with you during your consultation. To book, please call us today on 1300 177 144.  


Please be advised that medicare does provide rebates provided the medicare criteria is met. Please click on the medicare link to find out what the current rebates are. Please review the criteria listed below.


At Sydney TMS there is no need to pay anything upfront. You just pay for each session at the end of the treatment session.  This makes it a little easier for our clients to spread out payments. We understand that the cost of treatment is a big barrier for TMS treatment, so we committed to offering you the most professional service for the best value possible.

Is TMS right for you?

At Sydney TMS, we feel it is important to allow people to gain as much information as possible before making a decision about TMS. This is why we always arrange for you to have an obligation free assessment consultation with our psychiatrist to help you decide if TMS is right for you. Please allow 60 minutes for your initial consultation. If at the end of this consultation you decide not to proceed with TMS, you will not be charged for this meeting. We invite you to bring a friend or family member with you to this meeting to provide you with support.
