During the psychotherapeutic process the therapist uses a range of techniques focused around helping their client to address specific or more general questions regarding their well being and psychological state.
Almost always, this type of therapy requires the development of a therapeutic relationship between the client and the therapist in order to create a dialogue that will help overcome and manage problematic thoughts and behaviours.
Some of the common mental health disorders treated by psychotherapy in the Specialist Medical Clinic include (but not limited to) :
- Anxiety Disorders
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Eating Disorders
- Young Person and Adolescence behavioural disorders
The above represents a basic outline of the most common Mental Health disorders seen within the Specialist Medical Clinic.
However the list of disorders and symptoms seen by our professional team is far more extensive, if you are experiencing any change in their mental well-being or feel you are ready to make the first step in addressing your Mental Health needs, please make an appointment with one of our trained Mental Health professionals.
The stress and turmoil of daily life can also have a huge impact on our functionality and mental well-being. you do not need to be experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned in the above list to recognise that you may require the help of a trained mental health professional to guide you during such a time.
Psychotherapy can be utilised to help individuals (or groups) who experience a wide range of difficulties in life. These include (but are not limited to)
- The turmoil of loss / bereavement
- Acute, chronic or terminal illness
- Trauma as a result of cruelty, abuse, torture and other forms of violence
- The recognition of complex (or chronic) medical diagnoses
- Body image, physical changes, disfiguration, obesity, weight management
- Post traumatic stress
- Self loathing
- The effects of social upheaval
In many cases psychotherapy can help you to be able to manage ‘it’, instead of ‘it’ managing you.
