How we can help




Assessments


Standard Psychological Assessment

Depending on the feelings, moods and symptoms you are experiencing, your case manager will go through various standardized questionnaires so that we can have a first measure of how you are feeling. This will also help us to track your progress later on.


Sleep Assessments

This is where we give you an ‘Actigraphy’ wrist-band to wear for 7 days, to measure sleep/wake patterns, and blue light in your surroundings which may or may not be impacting your quality and duration of sleep. With this tool, we can educate you on what you can do in your daily life to improve your sleep hygiene.


QEEG Assessments

Pronounced like “kyew-ee-ee-gee“, this stands for Quantitative Electroencephalography (EEG) and allows us to have a look at your brain activity. This is a perfectly safe assessment, where we put a cap of electrodes on your head to measure brain activity while you complete tasks on a computer. This assessment lasts between 1 to 2 hours and is usually only a one-off assessment in the beginning.



Therapy Types


Psychological Consult

Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists are trained and experienced to deliver ‘talk-therapy’ or ‘Psychotherapy“. There are a number of different styles of Psychotherapy, a common method is “Cognitive Behavioural Therapy“. This is something our Psychologists offer as a stand-alone consultation, or in combination with TMS or Neurofeedback.


Outpatient TMS + Psychotherapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an evidence-based therapy program which helps to re-connect pathways between brain regions involved in Depression. Patients may receive 20 – 30 sessions of TMS, These sessions are booked as a 1-hour consultation as it is combined with Psychotherapy. It is recommended to have at least two sessions per week during the program.


Neurofeedback + Psychotherapy

At neuroCare we follow evidence-based applications of Neurofeedback that have been well-researched and shown effective in helping symptoms of ADHD as well as sleep problems. Patients may receive 30 – 40 sessions of Neurofeedback, These sessions are booked as a 1-hour consultation as it is combined with Psychotherapy. It is recommended to have at least two sessions per week during the program.
