The first thing you have to do is complete an Online Assessment, which you can do at any time.
We would then need to have a phone discussion with you to ensure the course is suitable to your needs. This will help you learn more about your symptoms and will help us to advise you about your treatment options, including a MindSpot treatment course.
If you choose to do a MindSpot treatment course you can access the course via the internet, or we can post the materials out to you.

  • Thank you for posting this.
    Been putting off researching ways of getting help way too long but this might finally start that ball rolling.

  • We all need this

  • +6 votes

    Always been free, government funded.

    It's an online or book-based therapy course guided by brief phone calls with a psychologist. The interactions with a therapist are only a small part of this.

  • Wow, this is an insane deal.

    • Ha………made me smile so +1 to counter the -1 vote there as am now not so insane after smiling :-)

  • Thank you, OP.

  • I have done the pain management course however it was not of great benefit mainly because of the length of time I have had my pain. I would recommend it for those who have only recently started having issues as it is geared more towards understanding how the pain affects you physically and mentally and ways to address that.

    • "geared more towards understanding how the pain affects you physically and mentally and ways to address that" - I believe this can be greatly beneficial with someone even with chronic pain. Even though you did not find it helpful, someone else may have a different experience. I will give it a go myself before I comment further

      • Yeah give it a go, everyone is different :) I have had chronic pain for 20 years so I already knew pretty much everything the course was providing. I hope it helps you, chronic pain is not a fun thing :(

  • Would anyone care to share what the phone calls are like generally? like would it be appropriate to take the call in a public space? i'm not sure what to expect

    • I'm sure if you're in a public space it'd be fine to take the call.
      Wendy are you worried might be inappropriate about doing so?
      As long as you don't have the phone on loud speaker you'll be fine, but that's just common courtesy :)

  • Tried to register but got this instead 'error occurred come back later.' Did that and got the same error again.
