About Elliston Clinic
THE ELLISTON CLINIC:
Now primarily based in Oakura Taranaki, at the Elliston Clinic we aim to provide professional and considerate assessment, treatment and support to people suffering from mental health disorders, psychological distress and emotional, relationship or stress-related problems.
The clinicians consist of a husband and wife team:-
Dr. Roger Elliott is a psychiatrist with additional post-fellowship training in psychotherapy and supervision.
Sharon Elliott (Whiston) has a background in psychiatric nursing and has worked as a psychotherapist since 1990.
We are now accepting new referrals just in Taranaki. (Though we continue to provide a service for our existing customers in the Auckland area from our new clinic in Drury). A referral to Roger as the psychiatrist, would generally involve a psychiatric interview, with resulting recommendations for any further investigations or treatments (e.g. medications, psychotherapy, counselling or a combination of these) depending on what is indicated or wished for.
A referral to Sharon as the psychotherapist/counsellor, would also involve an initial interview to ensure both an understanding of the problems and mutual treatment expectations.
In addition, we believe that by using both clinicians in their different roles as a treatment team (when this is needed), we are able to promote an integrated, holistic assessment and treatment approach to mental health problems.
Both clinicians have training in supervision and offer a service to other health (and related) professionals.
WHAT WE OFFER:
The clinic offers assistance to those suffering from psychological problems, stress reactions, relationship difficulties (including separation and divorce), grief issues and trauma related problems, as well as providing an assessment and treatment service for people with psychiatric disorders/mental ill health (such as depressive disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder or post traumatic stress disorder).
Clients/patients may ’self refer’ by contacting us directly or be referred by other health professionals such as GPs, counsellors/therapists or via the public health system.
At least one full working day’s notice is expected prior to cancellation of a booked appointment, otherwise a cancellation or non attendance charge will be made (1/2 fee).
There are pharmacies in both Drury Village & Oakura Village.
In the event of a psychiatric crisis we advise contacting your local district health board crisis service.
