Psychiatry

The focus is on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional, psychological and behavioural disorders. A Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specialises in mental health. Psychiatrists are qualified to assess both the mental health and physical aspects of psychological problems.

Areas we specialise in

we provide diagnosis and treatment for below and many other internal health conditions.
  • Schizophrenia-People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality. Although schizophrenia is not as common as other mental disorders, the symptoms can be very disabling.
  • Bipolar Disorder- Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs and lows.
  • Major Depression-Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how the way individuals feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.
  • Anxiety Disorders- Anxiety disorders are caused by irrational fears about objects, places, people, events or health by perceiving them as a threat to their lives.
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder- It is a common, chronic disorder in which individuals have uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviours (compulsions) that they feel the urge to repeat over and over.
  • Acute and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder- Acute stress disorder is characterized by the development of severe anxiety, dissociation, and other symptoms that occurs within one month after exposure to an extreme traumatic stressor (e.g., witnessing a death or serious accident).
  • Acute and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder- Acute stress disorder is characterized by the development of severe anxiety, dissociation, and other symptoms that occurs within one month after exposure to an extreme traumatic stressor (e.g., witnessing a death or serious accident).
  • Somatoform Disorders- Somatic symptom disorder is characterized by an extreme focus on physical symptoms such as pain or fatigue that causes major emotional distress and problems functioning.
  • Addictive Disorders- Certain illegal drugs can cause people with an addiction to experience one or more symptoms of a mental health problem. Mental health problems can sometimes lead to alcohol or drug use, as some people with a mental health problem may misuse these substances as a form of self-medication.
  • Eating Disorders- Eating disorders include the urge for people to control their weight and shape and use extreme efforts that tend to significantly interfere with their lives. The weight reduction is linked to coping with emotional problems.
