Therapies Overview

Ramsay Clinic Lakeside offers a comprehensive approach to mental health care, combining evidence-based therapies with the expertise of our psychiatrists and psychologists. Whether you receive inpatient or outpatient, psychological therapies are likely to be a part of your treatment plan.

Psychological Therapies:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT helps you identify and change negative thought patterns that contribute to your mood and behaviour. You'll learn skills to manage stress, improve communication, and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
  • 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 benefit those who find verbal communication difficult.
  • 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:

Neurostimulation Services:

In addition to psychological therapies, Ramsay Clinic Lakeside offers neurostimulation treatments for severe mental health conditions.  A thorough evaluation by a psychiatrist is required before considering neurostimulation services to determine if it's the most suitable treatment option for you.

  • Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT): A safe and effective medical procedure performed under general anaesthesia to treat severe depression and mania. It involves delivering brief electrical currents to the brain to induce a seizure, improving symptoms when other treatments haven't been successful.
  • Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS): A non-invasive form of neurostimulation using magnetic fields to stimulate targeted brain areas for mood regulation. TMS is effective for treating depression and other conditions in adults, with no anaesthesia or medication required.
