WHAT TO BRING

At the time your initial appointment is made, we will email you an intake form to complete. To maximise your appointment time, please complete this form and return via email or bring it with you to the appointment.

 

Please bring a copy of any referral from your medical practitioner if you wish to claim relevant Medicare rebates.

In addition, please bring any prior assessment, medical reports, letters or documents that may assist in gaining an understanding of your child and their history.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Child Session (3 – 12 years old)

The first session for your child  is a parent-only session. We strongly encourage both parents or primary caregivers to attend where possible. This allows for a thorough child and family history to be taken and an open discussion about your concerns.

 

Youths (13+)

For Youths (over 13 years old), they will be required to attend and there will be an opportunity for a joint assessment and then either individual time with your child or with yourself.

If your child is 15 years and older, the young person will be present at this initial session and asked whether they would like to come in by themselves or whether they would rather the parent or caregiver to join them.

Most Importantly the initial sessions will focus on gaining a shared understanding of presenting concerns, establishing a safe and comfortable place for therapy to occur, and developing a treatment plan.

 

The assessment phase may also involve observations in your child’s education or childcare setting and liaison with teachers and relevant professionals.

 

Therapy with children and youths usually involves parents and family members. For instance it may consist of parent only sessions, sessions with your child, or sessions all together depending on therapy goals. Therefore length and frequency of sessions varies depending on the severity of the presenting concern and other factors.

CANCELLATION

If you are unable to attend, please cancel at your earliest opportunity via phone, text or email so that the appointment can be made available to others.

If you provide less than 24 hours notice a 100% cancellation fee will be incurred.

Hope can be your reality.
