Join Our Practice

Join Our Practice

Therapeutic Axis is an initiative of practicing therapists who know the difficulties of starting a private practice, and are committed to facilitating the process for others. Therapeutic Axis is a centre of excellence for Counselling, Psychotherapy and Complementary Therapies. The facility has six consulting rooms shared by practitioners of various modalities, many of whom practice on a part-time basis. We invite new and established therapists to become members of a syndicate of professionals practicing at the centre. This is a unique opportunity for newly trained therapists to capitalise on their investment in training, and for experienced professionals to expand their practices. You can build your practice at your own pace, while minimising the risk and investment typically associated with starting private practice.

Comprehensive Facilities

Serviced Consulting Rooms

Members have use of a fully furnished, fully equipped office, including telephone, stationery, computers, photocopying, tea & coffee facilities etc. The offices and the overall environment present a highly professional image. Reception is staffed during business hours to take appointments and forward messages per your instructions

Good Location

Located on St Johns Road in Glebe, the office is a short distance from the CBD. Numerous cafes and restaurants are located on Glebe Point Road, two blocks away. On-street parking is always available nearby. A bus stop on a line to and from Central Station is right outside the front door.

EFTPOS Facility

A merchant facility is available to members for receiving debit card or credit card payments from clients. These may be paid directly into your nominated bank account or, for a lower start-up cost, paid into Therapeutic Axis’ account and then forwarded to your account after a delay. A cash till facility is provided.

Referrals
If you are looking to expand your practice you may be interested in joining our Referral Programme. We have a client-centred, mutually beneficial and responsible system of client referrals.

Professional Environment

Peer Support
The offices are populated with like-minded professionals. The practice provides a supportive and enriching environment for practitioners. There is an active referral network within the syndicate. Access to relevant books and journals is facilitated.

Privacy & Legal Issues
It is often difficult to ascertain whether privacy and legal issues have been adequately addressed. As a Therapeutic Axis member, many of the procedures and facilities addressing privacy and legal issues are provided, including:  ► Secure record storage  ► Format for informed consent  ► Peer consultation

Flexible Scheduling & Access
Scheduling can be done through reception during business hours. Access is available for those practitioners with appointments outside business hours (early, late or weekends). The facility is secure, with combination locks and security agency monitoring of out-of-hours movements.

Low Cost

Low entry point
The most attractive feature of the centre is the fee structure for members. The shared facilities allow practitioners to join a private practice in a highly professional environment, while obviating the need for up-front investment. After a modest monthly membership fee, facilities are charged on a very reasonable per-client-hour basis, which ensures that your facilities expenses always match the income you derive from them.  At any level of use, the cost is less than that of maintaining a sole private practice with no reception or administration, and far less than maintaining one with the comprehensive features of Therapeutic Axis.

Step into a high functionality environment
One of the cardinal principles of the Therapeutic Axis practice is to facilitate the joining together of qualified private practitioners and persons needing their services. By providing a low entry point in terms of up-front investment (as well as a supportive environment), we have encouraged many practitioners to take the bold step into private practice. Some of these have used Therapeutic Axis as a stepping-stone to sole or shared private practice, while others choose to continue their lively private practice at Therapeutic Axis, as it suits them to outsource the distractions of the nuts-and-bolts running of a business.
