In this modern era we find ourselves thrown about by our genes, by our relationships, by tragedy, loss, and trauma, by bad luck and by the failings of others and sometimes even ourselves, by so many circumstances beyond our control.
It it is hardly surprising that our emotions, our thoughts and feelings, our imagination, our ability to be creative and thoughtful, are stretched and pulled beyond our limits, and give rise to mental health issues.
Psychological Medicine is the branch of Medicine that draws upon modern medical science and therapies to offer help with such circumstances.
Our Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Psychotherapists work like any other Health Professional. We meet over several appointments to clarify what is troubling the patient, and identify the kinds of treatment that might be helpful, get treatment appointments in place and provide ongoing monitoring of response to treatment.
