Referrals for Psychiatric Consultations
For new private clients, we require a referral from your GP. This allows us to have a broad understanding of your medical background to inform assessment and treatment.
Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting GP referrals for privately-funded psychiatric consultations.
Our psychiatrists are registered with ACC to provide psychiatric assessment, psychiatric treatment and psychotherapy. Requests for ACC psychiatric assessment and psychiatric treatment require pre-approval from ACC.
We are also able to help with organisational psychiatric assessments, for example work-capacity assessment. Please enquire about our current availability for organisational psychiatric assessments.
Referrals for Psychotherapy
Our practice welcomes self-referrals for psychotherapy.
Please note that ACC clients with a sensitive claim are able to self-refer for psychotherapy.
You do not need a GP referral for psychotherapy, however you are welcome to ask your GP to make an initial referral on your behalf, if you wish to do so.
Please let our practice administration team know that your self-referral is for psychotherapy – rather than for a psychiatric consultation - in order for them to direct your enquiry appropriately.
Please also let our practice administration team know whether your enquiry is for 'in person' therapy at our Wellington clinic, or for online therapy.
You will then be contacted to discuss your self-referral, answer any initial questions you might have, and book your first session.
