We are very pleased that we are now able to offer repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) for depression. This treatment is NICE-approved for this condition and is suitable for a wide range of patients. It is an effective alternative for those who either cannot tolerate or do not wish to take drugs for this condition.
After an assessment by one of our psychiatrists you will be treated by one of our experienced rTMS therapists. Treatment consists of 37½ sessions every working day for at least 2 weeks. A typical course of therapy last 4-5 weeks. You will be re-assessed after the first 2 weeks and weekly thereafter.
The therapy is totally pain-free and can be taken in combination with most medications. There are virtually no side effects in most cases and you can drive to and from appointments.
