Chelsea-based private consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist Tom Pennybacker discusses how some psychiatrists are mainly interested in medication, others may focus on psychological therapy, and some combine the two. https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy
Psychiatrists do differ quite significantly in the approaches that they take. And you could broadly categorise that into people who are very interested in medication, and other people who are more focused on psychological therapy. Ideally, what you want is to find a balance between the two, because both are very important approaches to helping people with mental distress.
