Outpatient service

Our specialist clinical team members offers a full range of outpatient mental health services including:

    Our psychiatrists offer psychiatric assessment, consultation, and ongoing management of all adult, adolescent, and child mental health issues.

 

  • Psychological services

    Our psychotherapists and psychologists offer psychotherapeutic assessment, ongoing psychotherapy, dramatherapy, and music therapy.

    • What is psychotherapy?

      Dramatherapy is a form of psychological therapy in which all of the performance arts are utilised within the therapeutic relationship. It is about using the imagination to work creatively. The approach is non-confrontational and the aim of a session is to achieve personal change by exploring issues and feelings, and finding new meanings of life in a safe, contained, and playful environment.

    • What is music therapy?

      Music therapy is the use of sounds and music within an evolving relationship between the client and the therapist to support and develop physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Similar to dramatherapy, the approach is non-confrontational and no prior experience with musical instrument is necessary.

 

  • Occupational therapy services

    Occupational therapy aims to promote your health and wellbeing through everyday activities. An occupational therapist can identify problem areas you may have in everyday life, such as dressing or getting to the shops, and will help you work out practical solutions. By using different techniques, changing your environment and using new equipment, an occupational therapist can help you regain or improve your independence.
