How Does It Work?

Private psychiatry follows a proven process that begins with an initial assessment. This will be conducted by one of our highly-qualified and professional psychiatrists. Here, the psychiatrist will ask about your medical history, mental health history, current symptoms, and any previous treatments. Based on the assessment, the psychiatrist may provide a diagnosis or suggest further evaluations if necessary.

Key steps of the process after arranging your initial consultation include:

Treatment Plan: (personalised care, medication management, therapy)
Follow-up Appointments: (regular monitoring or flexible scheduling)
Additional Services: (psychological testing, nutritional counselling)

You’ll have the freedom to say as much or as little as you feel comfortable with and you can expect complete privacy and confidentiality.

Initial Consultation – As well as asking questions about medical history, your psychiatrist will likely conduct a mental health status examination which includes observing your appearance, behaviour, mood, speech, thought processes, and cognitive function. Diagnostic evaluation should also be expected.

• Follow-up Appointments – Here, our private psychiatrists will review progress made in line with your treatment plan, adjustment treatment plan if necessary to do so, and provide further on-going support.
