Therapy and Treatment Pathways

Northside Group Clinics use evidence-based therapies as the primary basis for psychological treatment. The programs use structured, focused treatments that assist patients with the here-and-now problems that have led to their admission.The overall goal of the treatment programs is to increase patients’ understanding of their difficulties and to teach them skills to respond and better manage their distress.Your recovery journey will be led by your allocated Psychiatrist, and provided by our multidisciplinary team.  Your Psychiatrist will conduct a comprehensive assessment and provide guidance on your treatment requirements while in hospital.  This will cover both your physical health requirements and your recommended group therapy attendance. 

Individual Support

The nurses will assist supporting you with the recommendations provided by the Psychiatrist.  If you would like emotional support at any time, please don’t hesitate to approach our friendly nursing team who are there to provide you with individual support and care.  Additionally, your Psychiatrist will see you for individual sessions twice per week.  Therapy staff (Counsellors/Psychologists) will support you by developing an individualised Group Therapy Schedule with you and reviewing your Care & Discharge Plan goals from a therapist’s perspective; they can also assist in clarifying any concepts not understood from the group therapy program.
