Below are some examples of indications for genetic counselling.

General Genetic Counselling

Genetic counselling is a process that involves the assessment and communication of information about genetic conditions and the risks of passing these conditions on to offspring. It can help individuals and families understand the genetic factors contributing to their health and make informed decisions about their reproductive options. The benefits of genetic counselling include a better understanding of the risks and benefits of genetic testing, increased awareness and understanding of genetic conditions, and improved communication within families about genetic risks. Genetic counselling can help individuals and families cope with genetic conditions' emotional and psychological impact and provide support and resources for managing these conditions. Genetic counselling can help individuals and families make informed decisions about their health and reproductive choices, leading to better health outcomes and improved quality of life.

General referrals may include adult-onset genetic conditions (such as Huntington’s Disease and Friedreich Ataxia), wanting genetic confirmation of a genetic condition (such as cystic fibrosis, neurofibromatosis and haemophilia), pre-symptomatic or predictive genetic testing, and much more.

Prenatal Genetic Counselling

Prenatal genetic counselling focuses on providing information and support to couples considering having a baby or already pregnant. The main goal of this counselling is to help parents understand the risk of genetic disorders or congenital abnormalities and to make informed decisions about their options for testing and possible interventions. Additionally, it offers emotional support and guidance throughout the process, making it easier for couples to navigate this important decision.

Reasons for referral include advanced maternal age (35y<), abnormal ultrasound, maternal serum testing or non-invasive prenatal testing, family history of a genetic condition or miscarriages.

Carrier Testing

If you're planning to have children, it's natural to want to know everything you can to give them the best start in life. Carrier genetic testing can help provide important information about whether you or your partner are carriers of a specific genetic disorder. This can help you make informed decisions about your family planning and the likelihood of passing on a genetic disorder to your children. This type of testing is especially helpful for couples who are both carriers of the same genetic condition. By analysing a sample of your blood or saliva, the test can determine whether you carry any genetic mutations that could cause a particular disorder. While it's important to remember that carrier genetic testing cannot predict with 100% accuracy whether a person's children will inherit a genetic condition, it can provide valuable information that can help you and your partner make the best decisions for your family.


Carrier testing can be done before your first pregnancy or before subsequent pregnancies. Please note that it is preferable that both partners attend genetic counselling before the test is performed.

Health, Lifestyle  and Ancestry Genetic Test Result Counselling

Understanding how your genes impact your health can be a valuable tool in improving your overall well-being. Lifestyle genetic testing is a type of genetic testing that can examine your DNA to provide personalised insights into your health, fitness, and lifestyle. By examining specific genes associated with metabolism, diet, exercise, and other lifestyle factors, this type of test can help you make decisions about how to live a healthier life. It's important to remember that this type of testing is not a diagnostic tool, so it's always recommended to speak with a healthcare professional before making any significant lifestyle changes.


Discovering more about your family history and where your ancestors came from can be an exciting journey. Ancestry DNA testing is a way to gain insights into your ethnic background, which can help you connect with relatives you may not have known existed.


Please note that these types of tests are not as tightly regulated as diagnostic genetics are. There may be some discrepancies in results between different service providers. Additionally, medical aids are unlikely to pay for lifestyle or ancestry DNA testing.
