How we do it
The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”
The father of modern medicine
and founder of the John Hopkins hospital
To our clinic where we believe that curing a psychological illness can only be done through a complete assessment of all the aspects of the illness and their effect on the person, which allows us to develop a treatment plan that cures the illness rather than sedate the symptoms, all in a strictly confidential environment.
Psychological disorders have both a Psycho- Social aspect (disturbance in thinking and emotions) and a Biological aspect (disturbance in the body, sleep, appetite, and energy).
In order to cure a psychological illness, we have to tackle all the different aspects of the human psyche that were either a cause and/or a result of the illness such as work, relationships, family, spiritual life, sex and sleep.
The Consultation starts with a detailed assessment of your complaints and condition using psychiatric assessment, medical examination, laboratory and psychological tests. We then work up the most suitable treatment plan for your condition.
We are strong believers in the Bio-Psycho- Social approach. That’s why our treatment plan -targeting all aspects of the illness- is usually made up of Psychotherapy, education about the nature of the illness, family sessions and psychiatric medications when indicated.
Based on the findings from the assessment of their condition, people are either channeled in the Consultations route or the Psychotherapy route. The Consultations Route consists of treatment with psychiatric medications and supportive psychotherapy sessions. The Psychotherapy Route consists of once weekly 50 min psychotherapy sessions and/or treatment with psychiatric medications.
All our Psychotherapists have been extensively trained to administer many forms of psychotherapy such as, Supportive, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Existential, Psychodynamic and Interpersonal Psychotherapy.
