What Is Private Psychiatry?

Private psychiatry starts with our highly-qualified and professional psychiatrists undertaking an initial consultation where assessments will be carried out looking at both your physical and mental health.

Typical questions that you may be asked include; general questions about your life and questions directly related to the reason you booked an appointment.

After conducting the initial assessments, our psychiatrist(s) can then proceed to diagnose any particular condition which is often the first step on the road to recovery.

Once the diagnosis has been met, the psychiatrist can then proceed to treat mental and emotional disorders through the use of talking therapies, such as CBT and counseling, medications, or a combination of the two.

Let’s get into the key signs of when you may consider seeing a private psychiatrist…

Persistent Symptoms

One of the primary indicators that it may be time to see a psychiatrist is experiencing persistent symptoms that impact your daily life.

These symptoms may include persistent sadness, anxiety, mood swings, changes in sleep or appetite, difficulty concentrating, or loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed.

If these symptoms persist for weeks or months and interfere with your ability to function at work, school, or in your relationships, it’s essential to seek professional help. 

Suicidal Thoughts or Behaviours

If you’re experiencing thoughts of self-harm or suicide, it’s crucial to seek immediate help from a private psychiatrist or mental health professional.

These thoughts can be a sign of severe emotional distress and should never be ignored.

Psychiatrists at The Therapy Company can provide assessments, support, and treatment options to help manage suicidal ideation and keep you safe. 

Difficulty Coping with Life Transitions

Major life changes, such as job loss, divorce, relocation, or the death of a loved one, can trigger significant emotional distress.

If you’re struggling to cope with life transitions or feel overwhelmed by stress, seeing a private psychiatrist can provide valuable support and coping strategies to navigate these challenges more effectively.
