During the psychotherapeutic process the therapist uses a wide range of techniques focused around helping their clients to address specific or more general questions about 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 to help overcome and manage problematic thoughts and behaviours.
Some of the common mental health disorders treated by our clinical psycho therapists in the Specialist Medical Clinic include (but is 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 and therefore if anyone is experiencing any change in their mental well-being or feels they are ready to make the first step in addressing their Mental Health needs it is advised to 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. One does not need to be experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned in the above list to recognize that they may require the help of a trained mental health professional to guide them during such a time.
