Therapies Overview

Ramsay Clinic Berkeley Vale offers a comprehensive range of evidence-based psychological therapies to support your well-being. Our team of qualified psychiatrists and psychologists can help you find the right approach to manage your mental health condition.

What are Psychological Therapies?

Psychological therapies are a form of treatment that focus on changing negative thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to mental health challenges. They are often used in conjunction with medication and other treatment options.

Therapies Offered at Ramsay Clinic Berkeley Vale:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT helps you identify and modify unhelpful thinking patterns that can worsen your mood and behaviour. You'll learn skills to manage stress, improve communication, and develop healthier coping mechanisms. CBT may be available in online or telehealth formats to improve accessibility.
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): DBT focuses on emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness. It's particularly helpful for individuals struggling with intense emotions and unhealthy behaviours.
  • Art Therapy: Art therapy provides a safe space for self-expression and exploration of emotions through creating art. It can be beneficial for those who find it difficult to express themselves verbally.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT helps you identify your core values and live a meaningful life, even when experiencing symptoms. You'll learn mindfulness and acceptance skills to manage difficult thoughts and feelings.

Who Can Benefit from Psychological Therapies?

Psychological therapies can be beneficial for a wide range of mental health conditions, including:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Personality disorders

Neurostimulation Services

In addition to psychological therapies, Ramsay Clinic Berkeley Vale offers Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) as a treatment option for severe depression and mania. ECT is a safe and effective medical procedure performed under general anaesthesia. It involves delivering brief electrical currents to the brain to induce a seizure. This can help improve symptoms when other treatments haven't been successful. A thorough evaluation by a psychiatrist is required before considering ECT to determine if it's the most suitable treatment option for you.
