Introducing Melbourne MediBrain Centre

Our private psychiatric state of the art clinic was established in 2002. Since then we have been offering outpatient consultations and day psychiatric hospital programmes covered by private hospital insurance for assessment, diagnosis and management of depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, panic disorder, personality disorders,women’s mental health issues throughout the life cycle and other difficulties that people may face during their lifetime.

In 2018, in line with legislation, we introduced treatment with medicinal cannabis in appropriate situations to assist in management of chronic pain, sleep disorders and anxiety disorders including post traumatic stress disorder in conjunction with effective psychological treatment programme.

Dr Natalie Krapivensky also offers medicolegal and forensic consultations and telepsychiatry services.

At Melbourne MediBrain Centre we believe that a comprehensive assessment – including a psychiatric consultation – forms the basis of diagnosis and treatment and, in line with that belief, use a range of investigative and diagnostic assessments prior to initiating treatment which include

  • Reference EEG,
  • Cognitive assessment,
  • Psychological and personality assessments,
  • Blood tests
  • Genetic pharmacology tests

Over the years, we have developed expertise and reputation for treatment of the following disorders:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Chronic Pain
  • Memory Loss / Dementia
  • Sleep Problems

Both the setting and the service are highly confidential (we don’t even have a sign!)

The practitioners at Melbourne MediBrain Centre continue to be actively involved in ongoing research, training and academic endeavours and work closely with International Institute of Psychopharmacology in developing ongoing research strategies. We are a fully registered and accredited private hospital, so private health insurance rebates apply.
