We seek to support

We specialise in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems experienced by the adult population from teenagers to the elderly. Our clinicians adopt a comprehensive approach to gain a full understanding of you presenting history and background. The outcomes of any assessments are explained in formal feedback sessions and a collaborative approach is used to discuss treatment planning. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to care and work closely with other members of your care team. For many of our clients, we are able to support longer engagement when compared to alternative referral pathways.

Telehealth services are available via the Zoom platform for individuals who are unable to attend in person, including those living in rural or remote locations.

Referral Pathways

Our services are based on self-referral and clients can contact the clinics directly. Your call will be returned by one of our clinicians to discuss your needs. We also accept referrals from members of your care team including doctors, allied health professionals and community agencies. We do not require a Medicare Mental Health Care Plans and payments cannot be processed under this referral pathway.

Assessment

The assessment process is individualised and typically comprises clinical interviews conducted face-to-face or via telehealth. This process is typically supported by the administration of some written and computer-based assessments to assist with diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Our assessments consider a broad range of factors including the biological, psychological, and social factors that might be contributing to your difficulties.

Types of treatment used

We offer interventions that draw on the latest evidence-based cognitive and behavioural therapy approaches to treat high prevalence and some low prevalence mental health disorders and associated forms of psychological distress. We welcome a multidisciplinary model of care (e.g. your doctor, psychiatrist, dietician or other member of your care team).

Some examples of our services include the treatment of:

  • Mood issues including depression, anxiety, and stress.
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder.
  • Bipolar disorders.
  • Interpersonal issues, including motivational problems associated with change.
  • Academic challenges and developing support strategies.
  • International students facing adjustment issues.
  • Trauma related mental health issues and PTSD.
  • Social anxiety and phobias.
  • Disordered eating behaviours.
