Psychiatry

Home Psychiatry

Mental health is as essential as physical health. But the taboo deeply rooted in our society makes us speak less about mental health, which should not be the case. If you are facing any conundrum regarding mental health, it’s time to consult a qualified psychiatrist in Dubai. A psychiatrist can treat numerous psychiatric disorders, especially panic attacks, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sleep disorders, eating disorders, ADHD, schizophrenia, etc. 

At Euromed® Clinic Center, we provide holistic all-around care for treating psychiatric issues and mental disorders. Our clinic has some of the best psychiatrists in Dubai on board, trained to treat adults, children, adolescents, and the elderly. Our psychiatrists devise a customized treatment plan for each patient after assessing them via interviewing and discussing their general health, background, and current emotional state. They may use different treatment techniques, such as psychotherapy, to enable patients to achieve optimum mental health, restore functions, and regain a high quality of life.

General Psychiatry

General Psychiatry has different types, and a good psychiatrist in Dubai needs to specialize in these fields after getting appropriate experience. They include:

  • Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Adult Psychiatry
  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • Psychosomatic Medication
  • Organisational Psychiatry
  • Neuro-Psychiatry

Psychiatry Treatment Techniques

Many treatments are offered in psychiatry, depending on the patient’s condition. They include:

  • Medications
  • Psychosocial techniques
  • Psychotherapy sessions

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Child and adolescent psychiatry, also known as pediatric psychiatry, is a discipline dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to children’s feelings, thinking, and behavior. A qualified psychiatrist with specialized knowledge of the impact of biological, psychological, and social factors on children and adolescents provides this diagnosis and treatment. This psychiatry category is classified into two more subdivisions: infant psychiatry and adolescent psychiatry.

Psychopharmacology (Treatment with Medication)

Psychopharmacology in Dubai generally deals with the effects of medications used for treating mental disorders. It is the scientific study of the impact these medications have on human behavior and health. Psychopharmacology usually tells how the intake of medicines affects human behavior, mood, thinking, routine activities, and life overall. It also emphasizes the relationship between medications and the changes in the nervous system.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy, or therapeutic interaction, is a technique to help people with emotional challenges or mental illnesses. This interaction aims to eliminate troubling symptoms of a poor state of mind. Eventually, this therapeutic treatment helps a patient regain their good form of mental well-being and improve their quality of life.

Hypnotherapy in Dubai

Hypnotherapy is an effective form of psychotherapy that operates by inducing intense focus and concentration. The terms ‘hypnosis’ and ‘hypnotherapy’ are derived from the Greek word ‘Hypnos,’ which means ‘sleep.’

Hypnosis functions on the principle of deep concentration and focused attention, inducing a state of relaxation in the candidates. In this serene and calm state, candidates strive to attain an elevated level of awareness. While under hypnosis, candidates become highly fixated on a single idea, temporarily blocking out their surroundings.

This treatment involves guiding candidates into a trance-like state, enabling them to address painful and suppressed emotions often concealed in their conscious minds.

Neurofeedback

The therapy is a non-invasive procedure, and the brain waves are measured to provide a real-time assessment of how the brain functions.

Neurofeedback is a treatment therapy that is used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The therapy helps the patients perceive better and self-regulate their brain activity. 

Neurofeedback can also treat anxiety, depression, epilepsy, and insomnia. 

Chinese Acupuncture in Dubai – TCM

Chinese acupuncture treatment works on the principle of qi, which means our body has several energy pathways spread across all organs and systems. These pathways are responsible for leading the energy to specific points in the body, called acupuncture points. These points provide access to the deeper circulating pathways, and when stimulated, they trigger the body’s natural healing ability.

During acupuncture therapy, acupuncturists use multiple tiny, hairlike acupuncture needles. They insert these needles strategically at various angles and depths into different acupuncture points. The needles will stay in their place for 5 to 45 minutes, depending on the treated condition. This stimulation promotes the body’s natural healing tendencies and helps alleviate pain.

The expert will determine the number of acupuncture sessions based on the candidate’s specific requirements.

Child Nutrition & Eating Disorders

Eating disorders refer to psychological conditions and distressing thoughts that contribute to persistent, severe, and unhealthy eating behaviors. These disorders can be pretty serious as they can adversely impact a person’s physical and mental health. In many cases, an eating disorder can change how people interact with their social circle.

While eating disorders can develop regardless of age and gender, adolescents and young women are more affected by this problem.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by recurring, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions) that an individual feels driven to perform. At Euromed Clinic, treatment for OCD typically involves a combination of therapy, medication, and sometimes lifestyle changes. 

Anger Management Treatment

Anger management therapy is a psycho-therapeutic program designed to help people manage psychological and emotional triggers that lead to anger. It is an effective technique because it helps you recognize arousal factors of anger and helps you cope with them effectively without necessarily changing anger-causing circumstances.

Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders, also known as sleep-wake disorders are conditions that affect the timing, quality, and amount of sleep a person is required to have. Sleep problems are linked to both physical and mental health and have been shown to greatly contribute to mental health conditions. 

Normally, an adult is supposed to get between 7 and 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Unfortunately, today’s world is characterized by a demanding, high-paced working environment that requires more hours of work put in. This can easily cause stress, which can lead to sleep difficulties.

A person with a sleep disorder or insomnia will often find it hard to fall asleep and/or stay asleep. He/she will also find it difficult to sleep throughout the night and will often wake up earlier than usual in the morning feeling tired. This takes a toll on the person and impairs his/her ability to function normally during the day. It can lead to anxiety, depression, and irritability. Getting sleep disorder treatment is a great way to regain your normal sleep and achieve a work-life balance.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – Neuro Rehabilitation

Due to the diverse nature of the traumatic brain injury, only an expert can determine the most appropriate treatment. In general, neuropsychological rehabilitation is considered a suitable treatment for most cases. However, there is no standardized protocol for its administration. This is because each individual behaves and reacts differently to a brain injury and its treatment.

A specialist employs a medical fitness program to reinvigorate cognitive functions, alleviate pain, and enhance energy levels. Additionally, patients are educated on how to manage their symptoms through exercise and rest.

The experts at the Euromed® Clinic Center are experienced in treating traumatic brain injuries. If you are suffering from a traumatic brain injury, please reach out to learn more about available treatments.

Depression Treatment – (Major Depressive Disorder)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT): This treatment helps depressed people correct false self-beliefs that can lead to certain behaviors and mood swings. Cognitive behavior therapy focuses on changing a thought because it precedes the mood, behavior, and physical reaction.   

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): This is a form of cognitive behavior therapy. It involves a comprehensive approach that includes acceptance-based, cognitive, and behavioral therapy, and teaches new coping skills to depressed patients. 

Medication: Antidepressants help in balancing the levels of neurotransmitters. These are chemicals that are responsible for communication between brain neurons. They include dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. When the levels of these chemicals are high, the level of depression is usually low.  

Group Therapy: This is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more health practitioners helping a patient how cope with negative behavior and experiences or manage mental health conditions.

Family Therapy: Depression not only affects the depressed person but the entire family. Integrating the family into the patient’s treatment ensures the best possible treatment outcome.

Bipolar Disorder

The following protocols are used for treating bipolar disorder.

Medications: Your doctor will look into the symptoms and other factors related to your bipolar disorder to suggest suitable medicines. The most common drugs used for treating bipolar disorder are mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, antidepressants, antidepressant-antipsychotics, and anti-anxiety medications.

Psychotherapy: During this therapy, you discuss your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that you think are the cause of the problem. Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, can help you overcome the psychological issues that hold you back from doing well in your life and career.

Lifestyle changes: You can manage your bipolar disorder symptoms through simple yet effective lifestyle changes, such as regular sleep, a healthy diet, daily workouts, and avoiding stress.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopmental condition mainly characterized by a behavioral change in the affected person. This condition is identifiable through restlessness, trouble concentrating, or a tendency to act on impulse.

ADHD Treatments

ADHD treatment may involve medications and psychotherapy. Here is a brief overview of both treatment options.

Medication: Medications for ADHD are primarily prescription drugs. Therefore, it is strictly recommended against self-medication. 

Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is another approach used alongside medication treatment to manage ADHD.

Acute Stress Disorder

People may suffer from anxiety disorder weeks after a traumatic event. This kind of anxiety disorder is known as acute stress disorder (ASD). Usually, ASD occurs within a month of a traumatic event and lasts from three days to one month. Some of its symptoms are similar to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia treatment in Dubai requires lifelong treatment. Generally, psychotherapy and medications are used to manage its symptoms. However, hospitalization might be necessary in severe cases. Usually, a psychiatrist having expertise in treating Schizophrenia treats it. Additionally, the following people may also work alongside a psychiatrist:

  • Psychologist
  • Social worker
  • Case manager
  • Psychiatric nurse

Anxiety Treatment in Dubai

There are two primary treatment modalities for anxiety:

  • Medications for anxiety
  • Therapies for Anxiety

Often, these two methods are combined to achieve optimal outcomes. Finding the most effective treatment might require time and collaboration between you and your psychiatrist or therapist.

Medications for Anxiety

Medications can be effective in treating symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder and other anxiety-related disorders. While they can be used on their own, they’re frequently combined with therapeutic approaches. It’s important to note that certain anxiety medications can be habit-forming, so they’re typically prescribed for short durations or under careful monitoring.

Different anxiety disorders might require specific types of medications. Some are preventive, while others directly treat the symptoms.

Common medications for anxiety include antidepressants (like SSRIs and SNRIs) and benzodiazepines. (Note: I’ve replaced “Antihistamines” with “benzodiazepines” as antihistamines are not primary treatments for anxiety, whereas benzodiazepines are).

Therapies for Anxiety

Therapeutic treatments for anxiety encompass methods like psychotherapy, often referred to as counseling or talk therapy. This involves working with a therapist to address and mitigate anxiety symptoms.

One of the most effective therapeutic modalities for anxiety is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). It’s a short-term, goal-oriented treatment that equips patients with skills to manage and reduce their anxiety symptoms, enabling them to engage in activities they might have previously avoided due to fear or anxiety.

Stress Management Therapy in Dubai

Treatment Techniques

Multiple techniques are used for stress treatment in Dubai. At the Euromed Clinic Center, our experts ensure that they use the most effective approaches tailored to each individual. All these techniques have proven successful in alleviating patients’ stress levels.

This form of psychotherapy helps individuals shift from a negative outlook towards a more positive and healthy perspective on life.

Mindfulness-based stress Reduction (MBSR)

MBSR incorporates the mind, body, and breath. As a result, it empowers individuals to process negative emotions without becoming overwhelmed.

One-on-One Stress Counselling

These confidential counseling sessions take place between the individual and a qualified psychiatrist or psychologist. During the session, the professional delves into the individual’s concerns and symptoms to devise an appropriate treatment plan.

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy employs deep concentration to help individuals confront suppressed emotions that might be hidden from their conscious awareness.

Group Therapy

Group therapy involves individuals facing similar challenges. It acts as a support group, allowing members to cope with their issues through mutual advice and shared experiences.

Family Therapy

This therapeutic approach involves the individual’s immediate family. Its goal is to foster understanding among family members so they can coexist and support one another effectively.

Personality Disorders Treatment Clinic in Dubai

Our personalities define our traits, thoughts, and behavioral patterns. A person with a healthy personality can easily build relationships, have social interactions, and cope with stress. On the other hand, personality disorders can negatively impact an individual’s thinking patterns and traits. As a result, individuals can develop inflexible behavior patterns, leading them to think, feel, and act in a non-conventional manner. Since an individual with a personality disorder cannot function in a socially acceptable way, it causes problems for them. These disorders affect their personal and social relationships due to their rigid thinking pattern. Personality Disorder Treatment Dubai can help individuals deal with different types of personality disorders.

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Children and teenagers can be difficult to really ‘know’ at the best of times.

Similarly, teenagers can naturally ‘shut down’ and disengage from parents and families, making it very difficult to know if something is ‘really wrong.’ Often, problems will be ‘just a phase’ or will be typical behaviours for both children and adolescents.
