Glasgow’s new mental health clinic
Glasgow has a new hope of happiness, as a specialist mental health clinic opens.
Thousands of adults who have spent years struggling with mental health and depressive episodes, could now get the lifeline they need. A revolutionary treatment approach arrives in Glasgow’s Charing Cross.
Health Improvement Scotland has issued formal registration to Moving Minds. This is a clinic that will deliver the revolutionary repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) Therapy.
Moving minds is a new fully accredited health and wellbeing clinic, based in the centre of Scotland.
The new healthcare facility becomes just one of a handful to provide the innovative technique across the United Kingdom. Over a number of sessions, patients receive repeated magnetic pulses. They stimulate activity of the brain cells and to specifically target the area most responsible for mood.
Glasgow’s newest wellbeing practice is being led by consultant psychiatrist Dr Krishna Rohatgi, and mental health specialist practitioner and TMS consultant, Isabel Leming.
Classed as ‘essential service’, regardless of COVID-19 restrictions, the clinic, in Sandyford Place, is open Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings.
The rTMS therapy concept is still relatively new to many. However it is an outstanding innovation in mental healthcare, which has transformative results. Particularly for those who have found themselves to be ‘treatment resistant’.
Dr Rohatgi said: ‘As someone with more than 50 years’ experience in psychiatry, integrative healthcare and addiction treatment, I cannot over emphasise how impressive this style of therapy is for those who have seen little success with previous efforts.
‘Myself and Isabel are so proud to be able to bring it to the population of Glasgow. Especially when the pressures of the pandemic are making life so much more challenging for so many.’
Treatments with full PPE
Treatment at the new clinic uses full PPE when carried out. Typically patients will undergo between 10 and 15 sessions. Doctors can carry out up to three sessions per day for consecutive days.
