Appointments and Referrals

How do I make a referral to CQ Wellness Centre?

If you would like to refer yourself or find out more about our service, please phone our centre on (07) 4923 2233.

If you are a parent, carer or friend of someone who needs assistance and would like to refer them we suggest you talk to them about this first and if they agree complete the referral form, you can forward to us by Fax: (07) 4930 6999, Email: wellness-admin@cqu.edu.au or drop it in to our centre during office hours.

If you are a health professional and would like to refer a client we ask that you fill out our referral form. Once filled out simply fax it through to us on (07) 4930 6999 or email it to wellness-admin@cqu.edu.au

All referrals will be assessed by the Wellness Centre Director for the Centre's ability to support the needs of the client and assign an appropriate therapist. Once an appointment time is available, we will call to arrange a convenient booking time for you.  A letter will also be sent notifying you of the appointment time and date.

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.
