Depression Treatment

Counselling & psychotherapy

Shortcuts
Depression is an illness that can affect the way you eat and sleep, the way you feel about yourself and the way you think about everything. Depression is more than a passing mood. It is not a sign of weakness, and it cannot be willed or wished away.

Symptoms

Typical symptoms for all depressive disorders include depressed mood, diminished interest and pleasure in most activities, appetite changes, problems with sleep, fatigue, problems with concentration and in more severe cases recurrent thoughts of death.

Diagnosis

The diagnostic process will usually involve two consultations, one with a mental health care specialist (psychologist or psychiatrist), who will ask you about your symptoms, your thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns, followed by a series of individualised neuropsychological assessments performed by a neuropsychologist. A physical examination, laboratory tests and imaging scans are sometimes necessary to rule out other physical problems that could cause your symptoms.

In cases where a diagnosis of a disease has been established, our multidisciplinary team will do everything humanly possible to treat symptoms and prevent them from progressing further, involving as many specialists as required, hence improving the quality of life, the emotional health and the well-being of each individual.

Risk Assessment & Prevention

Risk assessments, prevention strategies and tools are used as it is far more efficient to prevent a disease from developing rather than try to treat it once it has progressed. However, in cases where a diagnosis of a disease has been established, our multidisciplinary team will ensure to its upmost ability in treating the symptoms and prevent them from progressing further, hence improving the quality of life, the emotional health and the well-being of each individual.
