                  John Clarkson




Graduate of the Otago Medical School (N.Z.) John is a Life Member and Fellow of the Royal Australian College General Practice; Fellow of the Australian Society of Psychological Medicine ; Analytical                                                      Psychotherapist; Neuroscientist and author residing in Perth, Western Australia. John, although not a psychiatrist, undertook an alternative educational pathway and currently consults locally, nationally and                                        internationally in the field of Neuropsychiatry, endeavouring to add value diagnostically to an individual’s mental health evaluation, by undertaking the most scientific approach possible. 

       John is also the medical director of the Neurodiagnostic Centre, member of the Advisory Board of Notre Dame Medical School, Fremantle and a non-executive director of the Global Mind Screen Group. He actively                    presents to the public and profession, on a variety of topics, ranging from conditions such functional bain imaging, mood and anxiety disorders, [particularly, Social Anxiety Disorder], Adult ADHD, brain insult and                  trauma, together with and numerous lifestyle topics.  

The Neurodiagnostic Approach

               This is achieved by the incorporation of sophisticated online computerised, confidential information gathering systems such as the Neurodiagnostic Patient Questionnaire [NPQ], the Neurodiagnostic "stimulant"                                       Questionnaire [NSQ] and unique Mental Health Assessment programming software, the Global Mind Screen [GMS].  

               Dr Clarkson, despite acquiring extensive patient input prior to the consultation, prefers not to review this until the latter part of the initial consultation. This approach allows him to "see the patient afresh"and without                         any prior “preconceived” ideas concerning the patient’s past diagnoses, treatments or labelling! 

              Following the clinical interview, it may be deemed necessary for appropriate patients, to undertake functional Brain Imaging [i.e. SPECT] to complement the information acquired to complete their global mental health                           analysis. 

      Only once the Neurodiagnostic evaluation process is complete and collated, will a position be reached to formulate the best 'tailor-made' medication and treatment program for the patient. To date this assessment                       methodology has produced positive mental health outcomes in patients often 'let down' within the current system or as is so often the case, have been put into the "too hard" basket, despite the previous endeavours of              several mental health professionals.


                                     Assertaining "an accurate early psychiatric multi-diagnostic profile" 

                                                 is the cornerstone of successful mental health outcomes!"

                                                                                                                                                          jgc - 2016


                                                                                                             Welcome to the Neurodiagnostic Centre

                                                                                                  ["Providing a neuro-scientific approach to modern psychiatry”]



          The Neurodiagnostic Centre [Dr John Clarkson] from 2016 has undergone a change in direction and       

          will act as in the future only as a Mental Health Advisory Service [Clinical Neuropsychiatry] with        

          patient’s ongoing care and management being continued by the primary General Practitioner.

        This advisory service, while available to all over the age of 16 years, has been designed predominantly for  

        those have struggled with emotional and behavioural disorders over the years and who feel that they still

        having symptoms or concerns that have not been resolved to their satisfaction and which continue to

        impact negatively on the quality of their lives.


     Finally, it is the resolve of the Neurodiagnostic Centre to approach every patient as an individual, in a caring,

     professional and compassionate manner.
