Our Approach

At the Conscious Health Clinic, we don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach. Our Psychologists and Occupational Therapists together select a specific set of assessments and tests for each individual client, based on their goals and presentation. Some health professionals focus only on assessing patients, and then refer them to other specialists for treatment after they’ve made a diagnosis. In our clinic, we offer the full range of assessment, report writing, treatment planning, advocating to schools / NDIS / Centrelink / court etc. We even help with filling out forms, gathering other medical evidence, meeting with doctors and other support workers, specialist referral and family and carer education. We help you navigate the systems, and support you until you have gained the help you need. Please be aware that most of the assessments are not covered by Medicare and there will be a personal cost to you.

Formal assessments can help you to:

  1. Explore and confirm a diagnosis.

  2. Help you and your loved ones understand what is happening for you.

  3. Help inform and develop a targeted treatment plan to try to overcome any difficulties you may be having in your day to day life.

  4. Help provide the evidence your need for more support at school, home, in a legal matter or at work.

An assessment can include numerous components such as normative tests, informal tests, surveys, interview information, school, medical or forensic records and observational data. Our health professionals can help you determine what information to use based on the specific questions being asked.

What to expect

1. Initial appointment: We will book you in for a 1 hour initial appointment. During this appointment, our clinician will discuss your needs and gather background information to determine exactly which assessment is necessary. Please bring any relevant documents to this appointment eg school reports/ doctor letter/ third party requests etc.

2. Booking the Assessment: Depending on the assessment required, we will book you in with the most suitable clinician. Some assessments are lengthy and will require a few follow up sessions. Other assessments can be done online at home. We will let you know after your initial appointment. 

3. Attend the Assessment Session: Please arrive on time for the assessment. You don't need to bring anything with you, unless the clinician has specified during your initial appointment. As you may be in the clinic for a few hours, you are more then welcome to bring a snack with you. You will have time for a break during your assessment.
