Dr Tom Pennybacker outlines the day-to-day work of psychiatrists, and how they spend much of their time talking to patients to check their mental health and review any medications they’re taking. 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 spend the most of their time talking to their patients, to get a sense of how their mental health is, and particularly, reviewing any medications that they’re taking, making sure that they’re on the appropriate dose. And thinking with them if there’s a big decision to be made, for example, about coming off medication or if someone’s thinking about getting pregnant, things that are happening in their lives that would mean they’d need to think quite carefully about what the next step is.
