Our registered psychologists provide assessment and treatment/counselling services across the full range of psychological issues. Our key services include the following:
Usually an assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will be requested by the child or young person's paediatrician, pre-school or school, or parent/caregiver. An ASD assessment is lengthy and will usually involve structured interview with parents/caregivers and detailed observationof the child's social, interpersonal, physical, emotional and language functioning. A comprehensive report including diagnosis (if applicable) and recommendations for the child's further treatment/assistance is provided to the paediatrician, the parents/caregivers and the child's school/pre-school. Following receipt of the report, parents/caregivers are provided with a face-to-face or telephone debrief on the findings and recommendations contained in the report.
This practice has a long history of providing psychological services under contract to private and public sector organisations and their employees. Such programs aim to improve the well-being and general functioning of employees by assisting them to resolve both workplace and personal issues. Such interventions are helpful in improving morale and productivity in the workplace and may reduce the incidence of workers compensation claims being made. Generally employees are offered access to counselling with a psychologist for a specific number of sessions within a calendar year.
A select number of our psychologists are accredited providers of psychological services under WorkCover with the most common presentations being individuals with psychological illness arising from physical injuries in the workplace and psychological illness arising from exposure to trauma, bullying and harassment. We have a proven track record in liaising with all involved providers across the health and rehabilitation professions, injury management staff and insurance case managers. This allows us to facilitate the best outcomes for both the client and the employer, with an emphasis on assisting the client to safely re-enter the workplace as soon as is practicable.
