Our Therapeutic and Assessment Services

Medicare or Privately Funded Psychological Counselling

Our psychologists provide support to individuals to address mental health difficulties and disorders. We use evidence-informed treatments to assist with a wide range of mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. Psychological counselling can also help those experiencing a range of mental health difficulties such as relationship issues, conflict at work or home, stress, anger, sleep difficulties or drug and alcohol problems.

We accept referrals from GPs and psychiatrists, patients with Mental Health Treatment Plans and patients with private health insurance.

Our treatment approach:

  • Delivers evidence-based strategies to ensure a positive outcome is achieved in as short a timeframe as possible.
  • Supports problem resolution and improved mental health to provide clients with a better quality of life.
  • Is delivered by empathetic, experienced professionals through face to face or telehealth appointments.

Medicare or Privately Funded Physical Treatment

Altius Group helps clients who have acquired a physical and psychological injury. Treating the two in tandem can achieve far better results than treating them separately and support a more successful return to their usual daily activities. Individual treatment plans are designed to reduce complications, costs and achieve positive results as soon as possible. 

Our team of exercise physiologists and physiotherapists work together with our psychologists to assist clients needing the services of multiple providers and have experience working as part of Enhanced Primary Care plans.

We are always flexible in our service delivery. We may manage all aspects of an individual’s recovery from injury or illness and provide an overflow resource for return-to-work coordinators and injury managers.

Altius Group’s evidence-based interventions:

  • Place the client at the centre so that treatment is tailored to their individual needs and goals.
  • Provide the holistic support required for optimal recovery outcomes.

Medicare or Privately Funded Pain Management Support

Loss in strength and fitness begins within 24 hours of an injury. A reduced level of activity can decrease tolerance and conditioning to everyday activities. Learning to successfully manage pain can aid recovery and assist with daily living.

We provide coordinated support for comorbid injuries, utilising psychological therapy to help individuals adjust and cope with pain. This can include working with our exercise physiologists to facilitate physical therapy to help improve their mood and functioning.

Altius Group allied health professionals:

  • Educate individuals, clients and employees to improve their understanding of pain, as being knowledgeable about pain can lead to less focus on the pain and reduced fear of the pain worsening. 
  • Provide psychological support, as part of a GP Management Plan and Team Care, to manage pain.
  • Deliver tailored activity programs that offer positive pain management strategies.

Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity (ADHD) Diagnostic Assessment Service

At PeopleSense by Altius, we recognise the increasing demand for Adult ADHD assessments and the impact of undiagnosed ADHD. Our psychologists have a wealth of experience in conducting assessments for various purposes. 

What you'll get from an adult ADHD assessment:

  • Receive Clarity. If you’ve been experiencing emotional regulation difficulties, organisational challenges, or neurodivergent burnout, undertaking an assessment can provide clarity about your condition.
  • Targeted Support. Whether it’s medication, therapeutic assistance, or ADHD coaching, we tailor recommendations to your specific needs.
  • High-Quality Assessment. Our thorough assessment includes a full clinical interview, examination of your history, and evaluation of current symptoms. We also utilise psychometric tools to screen for ADHD and other mental health difficulties. The output is a high-quality assessment and a detailed report you can take to your psychiatrist or GP.
  • Feedback and Explanation. At the end of the assessment, we provide a feedback session. You’ll receive your report and a verbal explanation of the assessment results and recommendations.

While you don’t require a GP referral to engage in the assessment, we encourage involving your GP in the process. We accept referrals directly from individuals seeking diagnostic assessments, as well as from GPs and psychiatrists.

Child Psychological Assessment Services

At PeopleSense by Altius, we understand the importance of assessing your child's psychological and developmental needs. Our experienced psychologists provide comprehensive assessments tailored to support your child's growth and wellbeing.

What you'll get from a child psychological assessment:

  • Insightful Information. Gain a clear understanding of your child's current level of functioning, identifying both strengths and areas needing support. Our assessments can also determine if a diagnosis, such as Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism, or learning and behavioural disorders, is present.
  • Personalised Recommendations. We provide tailored recommendations to assist with your child’s development, learning, and behaviour. These may include strategies for home and school, therapeutic interventions, or further specialist referrals.
  • Thorough Assessment Process. The assessment begins with an initial parent interview to pinpoint key areas for further exploration. This may be followed by cognitive, academic, or neuropsychological assessments and observations, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of your child's needs.
  • Feedback and Guidance. Upon completion of the assessment, we offer a feedback session to discuss the results. You will receive a detailed report and a clear explanation of the findings and recommendations, helping you to support your child's development effectively.

You don’t need a GP referral to access our services, although we encourage collaboration with your GP or other healthcare professionals. We accept referrals directly from parents, as well as from GPs, teachers, and other specialists.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

EMDR is a structured and integrative therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. EMDR is a treatment option for those who have experienced trauma. It may be used for other clinical presentations including mood disorders, as a component of treatment.

Unlike other treatments that focus on directly altering the emotions, thoughts and responses resulting from traumatic experiences, EMDR therapy focuses directly on the memory, and is intended to change the way that the memory is stored in the brain, thus reducing and eliminating the problematic symptoms. 

Altius Group psychologists:

  • Only apply EMDR Therapy once they have completed an assessment and determined EMDR is suitable for their client’s symptoms and background.
  • May use EMDR Therapy in conjunction with other treatment modalities.
  • Conditionally recommend EMDR Therapy for the treatment of PTSD.

Fitness for Work (FFW) Assessment - Psychological

A Fitness for Work/Duty Assessment is an assessment that determines if an individual is psychologically fit to perform specific job duties safely and effectively. It is mainly used for non-work-related injuries, when employers need more information about an individual's ability to meet the expectations of the role.

The assessment considers various factors, such as:

  • medical history
  • current health status
  • medication use
  • relevant job demands or safety requirements

The goal is to ensure that individuals are fit to perform their job duties without posing a risk to themselves, their colleagues, or the general public. Fitness for Work assessments are used to find solutions to complex injury management cases and to support employees with health conditions to safely stay at or return to work.
