We offer individually-tailored detoxification and rehabilitation treatment programmes that ease clients back into taking control of their lives and dramatically improve the quality of their lives.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder & Phobias

Graded exposure and response prevention strategies combined with appropriate pharmacological treatment are used to treat obsessive-compulsive states. Systematic desensitization techniques are used in the treatment of agoraphobia and other specific phobias.

Our staff is specially trained to spot the early signs of Dementia including Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementias. We offer treatment with anti-dementia medication to improve the quality of life of these patients. Reminiscence therapy and revalidation strategies are offered as part of our psychological package of care in the management of dementias.

Schizophrenia

We strive to improve the quality of life of patients with schizophrenia and offer them a better control of their symptoms. We rehabilitate the patients to have a better integration of their personal, social and occupational lives. We also provide education on the nature of their condition as well as social and emotional support to their relatives and carers.

Home Visits

Our dedicated team of health professionals happily offers home assessments and treatments for patients who are house-bound due to mental health conditions. In those cases, domiciliary assessments provide the first step to a package of care which is targeted at rehabilitating the patient and enabling him or her to carry out activities of daily living to the best of his or her ability.

We carry out assessments of children suffering from a wide range of disorders including dyslexia, school refusal, truancy, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, attention deficit hyperkinetic disorder (ADHD) and other disorders of childhood and adolescence.

We carry out psychometric tests which include tests of intelligence (IQ tests), personality, memory, and cognitive functioning using validated questionnaires and a battery of tests. A full qualitative and quantitative report is given to the client.
