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.
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.
We’re known for our experience and expertise in a broad range of health needs, including helping you develop a healthy relationship with eating and your body.
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.
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.
Informed by our assessment findings, we bring together a multidisciplinary team of practitioners to review your case.
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.
