The Talbot Centre:
health centred on you

The Talbot Centre is a beacon of hope to many individuals and families seeking health and wholeness.

We are a contemporary health service focussed on providing integrated physical, allied and mental health care programs, something we call a You-centred Care Plan.

The Talbot Centre: health centred on you is our commitment to treat you as a whole person, attending to the many interlinked aspects of your health and well-being and helping you draw on the resources you already possess to achieve your healthcare goals.

What we do

We provide therapy, skill development, consultation and health education for individuals, families, health practitioners and communities within a warm, supportive and respectful environment.

Health in all its complexity

Health is a small word with a big meaning and a huge impact on your life. As the World Health Organization says, it’s not merely the absence of disease or infirmity – it’s a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. That’s what we want for you and your family.

Who we help at the Talbot Centre
Many people have experienced the frustrations of fragmented care – the costs, inconvenience and confusion of seeing different professionals whose advice doesn’t join up.
We do things differently.

You-centred Care Plans

Our care is centred on you. It’s connected, coordinated and informed by insights from relevant members of our extensive multidisciplinary team, who all work closely with one another and stay on the same page.

You are always at the centre. You are the reason we’re all here. And we believe you already have within you many of the resources you need to improve your life. Our role is to support you and your family as you take each step.

Here’s how we create a You-centred Care Plan.

Step one

Putting you at the centre of your care starts with a comprehensive assessment of your past and current health in its entirety – physical, mental, social and environmental.

Step two

Informed by our assessment findings, we bring together a multidisciplinary team of practitioners to review your case.

Step three
The resulting ‘You-centred Care Plan’ outlines which practitioners we believe could help you best, the evidence-based treatment they recommend and the ways they’ll support you as you seek to improve your overall well-being.
Step four

Responsive healthcare; we continually review the effectiveness of the plan in helping you move towards your healthcare goals. With your input, we explore what’s been helpful and what further support you might need and adjust the plan accordingly.
