Mental Health & Wellbeing

PGX genomic blood test – this is a test/s you can request from your GP that maps your personal genetic elements with specific prescribed medication for pain management and commonly prescribed medications for mental health conditions.  People often have different rates of success with prescribed meds and some just are not effective and we now have the science to assess why.

Many GPs are not aware of this test so this is the brochure you can show them to request the test.  Please call QML for cost because it is not covered by medicare and it does not test all medications that your GP may prescribe so before you spend the money call first.

Psychological Concepts/Models for Understanding

Stages of Change – I use the Prochaska, DiClemente, & Norcross (1992)  Stages Of Change Model in my own understanding of where I think a client may be in relation to implementing change and also directly with clients so that they can identify what stage they think they might be at. 

The model is an integrative, biopsychosocial model to view the process of intentional behaviour change and can be used across a range of areas requiring change, including addictions, staying in difficult relationships, changing jobs/careers etc
