For Doctors and Therapists
We work with psychiatrists, GPs and therapists to support their practices, not to replace them.
Symptoms relating to untreated trauma include anxiety, depression, addictions and other risk-taking behaviours, a sense of helplessness or hopelessness, obsession, compulsivity, panic, fear, irritability, guilt, shame, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, outbursts of rage or violence, poor sleep patterns, dissociation, and withdrawal, among others, all of which often contribute to relationship issues.
Many of these symptoms are associated with the major common psychiatric disorders in the DSM. We look afresh at the symptoms and particularly how they might link to the client’s history to consider a diagnosis of Type II Complex PTSD, which is often under-diagnosed.
As a referer you may have patients and clients who present with an array of co-morbid and dual-diagnosis symptoms which are difficult to separate and identify without closer observation and examination. If you feel that a client would benefit from this and a higher level of care, then we can help. Call us on 020 7754 0477 for further information.
We also offer written initial assessments with a senior clinician specialising in trauma treatment.
We don’t provide stabilisation or detoxification but we will work with borderline and stabilised patients. If necessary, we can work with you and a primary treatment clinic to get a patient stable and ready for our extended-care treatment.
We encourage patients and clients to stay with their original medical and therapeutic relationships if they wish to, keep referrers informed on their patients progress, and coordinate their return care. We can facilitate this for the client, either in person or on the phone, as appropriate during treatment.
