- Asking you questions about your life and thoughts
- Taking information from other sources such as your GP, relatives and social workers
- Sometimes blood tests or scans to rule out other health conditions
After your psychiatrist has made an assessment of your condition, they may prescribe medication for you or recommend other treatments such as counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
The number of times you see a psychiatrist is an entirely personal thing and is agreed between the doctor and patient.
If you would like to arrange an appointment with our psychiatrist, then please contact the clinic in confidence.
