Information for referrers

Thank you for considering Whole Heart Psychology for your patients. I use evidence-based interventions to treat individuals and families experiencing difficulties and distress. I value easy and open communication and like to work collaboratively with other treating practitioners in order to optimise treatment outcomes.

This is how you can expect me to work with you:

  • All patients are called within 24 hours of receiving your referral.
  • I will notify you once I have made contact with your patient and advise you of their first scheduled appointment.
  • I will use evidence-based approaches to work with your patient.
  • I like to take a solution-focused approach and work towards mutually agreed upon goals.
  • I will write an evaluation report after 6 sessions with your patient (or after their last session if I see them for fewer than 6 sessions).
  • After 6 sessions, I will advise whether treatment is complete or whether further sessions are indicated.
  • You can contact me at any time on 0409 388 840 or email me: amy@wholeheartpsychology.com.au.

This is how you can refer your patient to me:

Option 1

Give the patient their mental health care plan and ask them to contact me on 0409 388 840 to make an appointment. I will ask your patient to FAX, scan or bring their mental health care plan to me for their first appointment.

Option 2

Fax (07) 3041 6155 or scan the mental health care plan to me at info@wholeheartpsychology.com.au. I will contact your patient directly to schedule their first appointment. I will then notify you to let you know when I will be seeing them.
