counselling

Counselling is available for all patients at Reproductive Medicine Albury. Some treatment cycles have elements of compulsory counselling.

 

Patients at Reproductive Medicine Albury may choose to access counselling to support them during their treatment cycles.

 

Counselling is provided by a qualified member of the Australian Association of Social Workers. Our counsellor is a member of both Australian and New Zealand Infertility Counsellors Association (ANZICA) and the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA).

 

Counselling costs are included in some treatment programs. You can find out any costs involved by speaking with a coordinator. Access to the counsellor is through referral by your doctor, coordinator or self referral. We believe that infertility counselling can be an important component of the service we offer. Although counselling is not mandatory in every treatment program, it may be appropriate at certain vulnerable times.

 

These include:

  • Following diagnosis
  • When deciding whether to pursue treatment
  • When deciding to finish treatment
  • When a cycle ends with an unfavourable outcome
