PSYCHOLOGY + HIKES©

Experience Therapy Like Never Before—Step Outside with OpentraX!

Hey there! Welcome to OpentraX Adventure Therapy Programs. Do you or someone you love find traditional therapy a bit of a snooze-fest or worse, downright intimidating? Imagine swapping that cold, clinical room for the vibrant hues of the bush or the calming sounds of a coastal walk. Well, stop imagining because that’s exactly what we offer. We’re here for NDIS participants, their supporters, and coordinators looking for a fresh and highly engaging approach to psychological well-being.

"For the first time, I felt I could breathe in a therapy session. OpentraX turned out to be a sanctuary I didn't know I needed."

Introducing HIKES©

HIKES© (Holistic Interactive Kinesthetic Engagement Sessions).
Imagine combining the healing powers of nature with evidence-based psychology sessions. HIKES© is specially tailored to help you recalibrate, recenter, and adjust to the modern world's relentless demands.

Program Overview

OpentraX is not your run-of-the-mill therapy program. Think of it as therapy with a serious dose of Vitamin N—Nature, that is. We take you outdoors, hiking through the Aussie bush, strolling along the beach, or engaging in exciting activities along the way. But don’t stress; we tailor every adventure to your physical ability and comfort level. This program is specifically designed for NDIS participants seeking an individually tailored experience that goes beyond the ‘sit and chat’ model of conventional therapy.

About Us

Founded by a group of therapists who are as passionate about the outdoors as they are about mental health, OpentraX Adventure Therapy has one aim: to help you heal in an environment that feels as natural as your need to breathe. With years of experience both in clinical settings and the great outdoors, our professionals deliver evidence-based approaches that combines the best of both worlds. Practitioners hold qualifications in clinical psychology, counselling and social work and use their skill-sets to thoroughly harness the outdoor environment, so you’re in incredibly capable hands.

A Reliable Partner for True Individualised Care

You’ve scoured lists of therapists and programs, and it feels like you’re reading the same thing over and over again, doesn’t it? Break the monotony and offer something that feels tailor-made for each participant: OpentraX.

What About Privacy?

You might be thinking, “How private can a session be if we’re out in the open?” Fair call. The last thing we want is for you to feel like you’re airing your dirty laundry in public. That’s why we carefully select secluded outdoor spots for your sessions. Think intimate alcoves surrounded by trees, or serene beach coves that rarely see foot traffic. Our aim is to ensure you feel as comfortable talking in nature as you would in a closed room.

The next thing on your mind might be the actual effectiveness of this non-traditional setup. Will it work, or is it just a fad? We base our program on robust, evidence-based psychological practices. The nature element isn’t just an aesthetic touch—it’s backed by research that shows the positive impact of nature on mental health. In short, OpentraX combines proven therapeutic methods with the added benefits of the great outdoors.

Okay, so maybe you’re not Bear Grylls. No worries! Our activities are tailored to suit your physical comfort level. You can have a relaxing stroll by the beach or a more intense hike, based on what you’re up for. We consult with you to ensure that the physical aspects of your therapy sessions are as manageable or as challenging as you want them to be.

Not a chance! Our pricing is in line with the NDIS Price Guide, so your wallet can breathe easy. But let’s talk about something that’s often missed in the conversation about costs—effectiveness and adherence.

You see, traditional clinic settings often struggle to keep participants engaged. This leads to missed sessions, last-minute cancellations, and the dreaded cancellation fees. In the end, you’re spending funding without seeing measurable outcomes. It’s like paying for a gym membership you never use—ouch!

That’s where OpentraX really shines. Our sessions are so individually tailored and genuinely engaging that we see exceptionally high levels of adherence. Participants don’t just show up; they look forward to it. And when you consistently engage in therapy, you’re more likely to see real, measurable improvements in your mental health.

So, not only is it cost-effective upfront, but its high effectiveness and commitment rate also ensure you’re getting the most bang for your NDIS buck. Now, how’s that for value?

We understand that as a support coordinator, you need partners who are reliable, flexible, and above all, effective. OpentraX offers immediate availability and a breadth of tailor-made services that make your job of providing quality care that much easier. Think of us as an extension of your team with an added zing!

"As someone who refers multiple cases, the adaptability and breadth of OpentraX's offerings have been a godsend."
