Appointments and Referrals

The Wellness Centre is open to Clients on:

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 9:00 am to 4:30 pm from late March until October.

How do I make a referral to CQ Wellness Centre?

All referrals will be assessed by the Wellness Centre Director for the Centre's ability to support the needs of the client. You or your child will then be placed on a wait list, we will call to offer an appointment as soon as one is available. Wait list times vary depending on the type of referral and the caseload of clinicians. An estimate of the wait time can be obtained from Administration. Please complete the Referral and forward it to the centre at the address provided on the form.

What to expect?

During your visits, you can expect to be treated with respect, understanding, compassion and dignity.

We offer a non-judgmental and caring environment where our main goal is to first listen to you and then to explore effective strategies to resolve your concerns and to reach your goals.

Each therapy session lasts around 50 minutes. The number of sessions required depends on the complexity, duration and severity of the problem. It may be as few as 2 or 3, but will mostly vary from 6 to 10 sessions to address significant issues. Appointments are generally made either weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

During the first session, we will discuss your current situation, issues that are concerning you and what you hope to gain from therapy. You may be asked to complete one or more questionnaires. This is voluntary, but it can help us assess your situation more clearly and understand what is going on for you and how best to respond.  At the end of the first session, we explore treatment options, strategies and goals with you.

The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable and we encourage you to ask questions about the therapy process. You can also ask the therapist to repeat anything you don’t understand.
