What is the difference between a therapist and a psychiatrist?
A psychiatrist is a qualified medical professional and can prescribe medication, whereas a therapist relies on various counselling and/or therapeutic forms of treatment.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, therapists can assess and treat without referral by a doctor. However our CEO and Founder Dr. Sheheryar Jovindah is a UK qualified Consultant Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist, and it is preferred that any individual seeking therapy for the first time take an initial consultation with him, so that he can best guide you and refer you to the most relevant therapist.
The treatment duration varies from person to person and usually depends on the individual's condition/diagnosis, the severity of their impairments, their past medical history, etc. Follow-up evaluations will be periodically carried out to assess the individual's progress and the therapist will liaise with our Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr. Sheharyar Jovindah, to help you best achieve your therapy goals.
We see and treat patient for a wide range of conditions and diagnoses. Please visit our Services page for an extensive list of conditions and diagnoses we cater to.
Mind Professionals is proud to have a team of diverse therapists, providing treatments for all ages and all difficulties, who have obtained and achieved advanced certifications in various relevant disciplines from UK and USA.
