People with clinical depression have the Beck’s triad: negative views about the world, self & the future.
Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. To be diagnosed with depression, the symptoms must be present for at least two weeks.
While the diagnosis is clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.
We look beyond the symptom at the syndrome; beyond the syndrome and diagnosis at the person. Depression is a common condition; each sufferer is however, unique, and that is our focus.
At Buddhi Clinic we focus on sub-typing depression, identifying underlying biological, psychological & social factors.We build comprehensive psychometric profiles of our clients and plan interventions that target not just the symptoms, but also the causative factors & co-morbidities.
Apart from drug treatment of depression we have in Buddhi Clinic 4 Tesla Neurosoft repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) delivered with diligence by experienced and internationally trained professionals. We combine this with a range of expert psychotherapy procedures including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as well as a range of Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) interventions- Ayurveda, Naturopathy & Yoga for a unique, holistic, never before solution.
