Genetic counselling providers

Genetic counselling may be an important step to consider before a patient agrees to undergo genetic testing. Genetic counselling may help to clarify the questions being asked of the test, the selection of the appropriate test, the possible results from the test, and the implications of the test result for the patient and relatives.

The list below details private genetic providers across Australia. There are also genetic counselling services provided by the Department of Health in each state/territory, and the details of these can be found on the Centre for Genetics Education website listed  below under Public Services.

If you are a provider of genetic counselling and wish to be listed on this page, please contact us.
