Diagnostic Evaluation programme
Our mental health practice provides specialist diagnostic care for a range of mental health disorder. We believe that a correct diagnosis is the first and single most important step towards effective treatment. Our diagnostic programmes is a psychoeducational intervention for people who face difficulties with their mental health. The aim of the programme is to offer the best possible clinical assessment of each person’s present state, diagnostic status and evaluation of current clinical needs. It provides a uniquely thorough and comprehensive evaluation of all diagnostic issues along with psychoeducation regarding its findings. Our diagnostic programme was developed by Dr Yanni Malliaris at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s London during his PhD research. For further information please see here:
Specialist Psychotherapy Programme
Our mental health practice provides specialist Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT is a therapeutic intervention for people who have difficulties with their emotional health. The CBT model focuses on the role of thinking and behaviour in our emotional health. It represents the best evidence-based psychotherapy in the field of affective disorders (Bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders etc). The aim of the therapy is to alleviate depressive, hypomanic and anxiety episodes and to prevent new episodes/crises from ever recurring. Dr Yanni Malliaris has worked and trained with the father of CBT for Bipolar disorder (Professor Dominic Lam) at the University of London, and has trained in Behavior therapy with Professor Ivar Lovaas at UCLA. Other important and notable Professors that has worked and trained with in the field of CBT therapy include Professor Chris Brewin (Depression, PTSD) and Professor Kevin Power (Anxiety disorders). Currently, Dr Malliaris develops his own CBT therapy interventions for Bipolar disorder and depression. Our CBT programme adapts to the individual needs of each patient. For those who know some of the CBT models we frequently use include Lam’s and Beck CBT models (for Bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety disorders), Miklowitz’s Family Focused Therapy model (for Bipolar disorder), Watkin’s Rumination-Focused CBT model (for depression), Martell’s Behavioral Activation model (for depression), Linehan’s Dialectical Behaviour Model (DBT, for personality disorders), and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP).

Specialist Psychopharmacology Programme
Our mental health practice provides specialist pharmacological treatments for a range of mental health issues. Our core philosophy sees psychotropic pharmacotherapy as an additional form of treatment in some mental health disorders but never as the only form of treatment. We practice within the model of evidence-based integrative practice, where medication treatments when offered are always combined with evidence-based psychotherapy treatments.
