Referrers

When a person experiencing adversity or at a life crossroad reaches out for professional help, referral to other professionals or agencies may be called for, to complete the mosaic of assistance provided. When referring to Therapeutic Axis, you can be confident that they will be in good hands.

When referring to Therapeutic Axis we offer a spectrum of psychotherapy, psychology and coaching services that address a person’s mood, motivation, goals, cognition, behaviour and relationships. Our services are complementary to other health and community services, and provide a reliable, accountable and accessible referral asset.

All therapists practicing at Therapeutic Axis are in individual private practice. Persons may be referred to Therapeutic Axis or to any specific therapist. With a substantial number of practitioners possessing a wide range of expertise, persons referred to the practice are typically referred on to a therapist within the practice. The prime criterion for onward referral is what is best for the patient.

No formal referral is necessary. There is typically no waiting list. If a facilitator (e.g., family member) makes the first contact, we usually require that the identified patient also contact us directly to arrange the first appointment.

The psychologists practicing at Therapeutic Axis are recognized by Medicare and if clients are registered for the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative or the Enhanced Primary Care plan, they may have access to Medicare rebates.

If you would like a report on the progress of a person you have referred, you need to make this known, as reports are not routinely provided. Any such report must be consistent with client consent.

Referring individuals, agencies, NGOs, practices and teams are welcome to meet with Therapeutic Axis management and staff, tour the facilities and have procedures explained, by appointment.
