Integrative treatment planning....⬇️
This may involve suggestions for behavioural change plans, medications that may be helpful and specific suggestions for psychological therapies.
I may suggest additional physical examination or laboratory/radiologcial tests.
Occasionally, in-patient treatment at a specialist hospital may be advised.
I may advise on how to access specific treatments and who should deliver them. For some patients I will offer to provide these myself or in collaboration with another health professional.
If I commence any form of medication, it is essential that I see you for a follow up appointment to assess response, side effects, etc. Occasionally, I may make suggestions to your GP for pharmacological treatments but again, it is essential that you are seen for ongoing review.
Integrative treatments usually combine psychotherapy, behavioural and pharmacological treatment.
We will collaboratively agree on specific goals for treatment.
