Dealing with a traumatic event
There are times when we can all feel stressed at work or in our personal lives. Alternatively, an event occurs, such as an accident or assault, which results in our normal coping mechanisms feeling overwhelmed. Both scenarios can lead to significant psychological symptoms and an interference with day-to-day activities.
We offer a consultant-led diagnostic and treatment service for stress-related problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, using a multi-disciplinary approach to care. Patients are seen quickly and treatment interventions are focused and usually short term. A holistic approach is adopted and, if appropriate, family members can be seen. We offer combined medical and psychological interventions in line with NICE guidelines.
