Holistic Psychiatry
Services

We are proud to offer a range of therapies to help with any psychological issue both short-term and long-term. Over the years we have built up an unrivalled reputation in therapeutic services. We are increasingly focused on promoting mental health and wellbeing rather than simply responding to mental illness. Our philosophy is to understand your areas of difficulty, gain relief from present symptoms and develop resources to cope in the future. Above all, we believe change is possible, no matter how long someone has had a mental health problem, or how much this has changed their life.

Everybody reacts to life differently - it's what makes us human. Asking for support from trusted experts is the first step to getting your life back on track. Holistic Psychiatry can help you overcome a variety of mental health conditions. We look beyond therapy to ensure that you receive well rounded treatment, considering the physical, emotional and social needs of all the people who we support.

Evaluation

A comprehensive diagnostic evaluation is the first step toward determining the nature and significance of the problems, and getting the right care. A diagnostic evaluation is the only way health care providers can assess a person's condition and provide an accurate diagnosis. The diagnosis then determines appropriate treatment and care options, as well as an accurate forecast of the course of the problem.

  • Accurate assessment

Our Medication Management is completely in accordance with all legal requirements and professional guidelines. Our Medication Management includes five core principles:

  • Patient assessment and/or a comprehensive medication review

Our work covers the spectrum of psychological issues, from minor to complex.

Depression

Depression treatment at Holistic Psychiatry, can help you tackle your depression and move forward with a more positive outlook on your life. We will help you get to the bottom of the underlying causes of your depression by working with you to examine the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are contributing to your low mood. Together we will develop tailor-made coping strategies to enable you to manage low moods, and you will learn tried and tested techniques and tools that will be effective for you in the long-run.

Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression)

Bipolar Disorder can be effectively treated, but there is always a chance it will re-occur. That is why at the Holistic Psychiatry Centre we encourage our patients to practice ongoing awareness, and we are always available should they need any further help. The major goals of treatment are to:

  • Treat and reduce the severity of acute episodes of mania or depression when they occur
  • Reduce the frequency of episodes
  • Avoid the cycling from one phase to another
  • Improve the patient's overall quality of life

An important aspect of treatment is to determine what might have triggered a bipolar episode and work at minimising its negative impact. At the Centre, we work with the patient to identify key emotional triggers and anything that might interfere with the treatments prescribed.

Anxiety Disorders

There are several conditions for which anxiety is the main symptom including panic disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - all of which tend to be focused around a specific issue or event. Alternatively, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) is an anxiety condition that is characterised by excessive, uncontrollable and non-specific worry.

The Holistic Psychiatry are specialists in treating anxiety disorders, providing a range of treatments, such as taking therapy using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Sometimes if the disorder is severe and impacting significantly on daily life, then prescribed medications can be useful alongside CBT. We can also help you create a personalised recovery plan to bring about healthy change and teach you techniques and tools that will help you manage stressful situations in the future.

As you progress on your journey to reduced anxiety, our specialists will help you to keep on track with your goals, providing ongoing emotional back up and helping you identify any potential barriers to self-improvement.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Once diagnosed with PTSD, there are a range of treatments available. The specialists at the Holistic Psychiatry will talk through the options available and recommend the most suitable treatment based on your personal circumstances. There are a variety of treatment for those suffering with PTSD, which may be used individually or in conjunction with one another. Post traumatic stress disorder treatment options include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Counselling
  • Medication

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is a long-term condition characterised by thoughts that make you feel anxious (obsessions) and behaviours you employ to reduce this anxiety (compulsions) and is one of the most common mental health problems. Counselling and psychotherapy can be highly successful methods in overcoming obsessive-compulsive disorder.

OCD treatment often involves cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and OCD medication. A structured programme tailored to your specific problem will be designed after a consultant psychiatrist and trained therapist have carried out an assessment. Treatment will depend on the seriousness of the condition and will be discussed. Outpatient, day patient or inpatient care is available.

Substance Abuse and Dependence

Substance Abuse and Substance Dependence - both refer to maladaptive patterns of substance use that lead to significant impairment or distress. In addition, while continuous heavy Substance Dependence can lead to a greater risk of physical illness, may also cause severe problems, especially from a social perspective.

We understand embarking upon recovery can be an emotionally turbulent time for you. With this in mind, the Holistic Psychiatry offers an experienced specialist to help you discuss your issues in confidence. Our psychologists and psychiatrists work with all forms of Substance Abuse and Dependence, and we have particular specialists with extensive training and experience in drug and alcohol treatment. Together, they will help you gain the crucial self-understanding and insight you need to recognise what triggers your desire to pursue your addiction, develop strategies to cope with trigger situations, and devise tailor-made methods of handling your withdrawal symptoms while you recover.

Schizophrenia

Whilst difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of this illness, there is strong evidence of structural changes in a sufferer's brain, which suggests that it's not a learned behaviour or caused by purely psychological factors. There does appear to be a genetic link to schizophrenia.

Treatment for schizophrenia available through the Holistic Psychiatry can include medication, counselling and therapy. These will be prescribed according to your need as the illness progresses. Our overall aim is to support your independence and try to improve the quality of life while recognising, and then learning to avoid, those things that trigger the symptoms.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Holistic Psychiatry understands that helping someone with an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) can be a challenge. That is why we have developed and provide a range of innovative services which ensures a quality of life for each individual we support. Through specialised staff, structured personalised programmes, therapeutic input and education; we look to support people to maximise their potential and independence, regardless of their diagnosis. Whilst some may always need much support, others do go on to lead independent lives.

Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is an anxiety disorder characterised by recurring and regular panic attacks. There are two main forms of treatment for panic disorder: therapy and/or medication.

The Holistic Psychiatry has been helping to treat anxiety disorders and people who experience attacks. The type and length of panic attacks treatment is dependent on the individual's circumstances and the severity and complexity of the condition. Some patients are treated as outpatients, others require a more structured treatment approach as inpatient for the duration of their panic attacks treatment.
