If you are experiencing issues that are getting in the way of your daily functioning, it might be a good idea to seek help – distressing thoughts, disturbed sleep, personality changes, trouble at work, relationship issues – if you find that these areas in your life have been affected, you may want to seek timely psychological help to address and resolve these problems.
We have a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists at Mindtemple, and the fees are different for different professionals. Kindly contact us so we can help you with an appointment with the right counselor based on your needs.
Since every individual’s problems differ from person to person, it is not possible to put down a specific time frame for therapy. This being said, clients generally report changes/progress within two weeks of regular sessions.
Again, since each case is different from the other, different approaches are used for different individuals. Pharmacotherapy is only one type of treatment for psychological issues in tandem with various talk and arts based therapies. Medicines may be prescribed to supplement progress, and are generally short term, and completely non-addicting.
If you have previously taken any psychometric tests, kindly carry those reports with you. Any old prescriptions from a psychiatrist, scans/reports of previous hospitalization or surgeries you may have undergone are helpful. It is also recommended to carry blood reports if recently conducted.
A psychiatrist is one who prescribes medication, while a psychologist imparts therapy. In clinical cases, it is advisable to see a psychiatrist since hormonal and biological imbalances sometimes need the aid of medication (only if absolutely necessary). A psychologist is one who helps with adjustmental and emotional troubles, with the aid of various forms of therapy (see Services).
