Clinical Services

At PHWC, we offer a comprehensive range of mental health services to support you on your wellness journey. Our team of experienced psychiatrists, psychologists, and counsellors provide personalised care tailored to your unique needs.

Assessments

Our mental health professionals conduct thorough assessments to gain a deep understanding of your symptoms, history, and goals. This allows us to make accurate diagnoses and develop effective treatment plans.

Psychological Assessment and Management

Psychological Assessment and Management is facilitated by our Psychological Counsellors. The sessions are conducted with the intention of gathering information about the client with the purpose of building rapport and coming up with a treatment plan for managing the concern.

Psychiatric Assessment & Treatment

Each patient that comes in for a Psychiatric Assessment receives a diagnosis. The diagnosis includes a follow-up treatment plan and in some cases might even include medication. If the assigned psychiatrist feels the patient needs therapy, they refer them to a Psychological Counsellor or Clinical Psychologist accordingly.
