Psychiatry (consultations)

Everyone may experience mild and short-term or more severe and long-lasting mental health problems throughout their lives.
A psychiatrist specialises in mental health problems, focusing on the diagnosis, assessment, treatment and prevention of psychiatric and behavioural disorders. A psychiatrist assesses a person’s mental state and makes recommendations for further treatment. Depending on individual needs, the psychiatrist prescribes medication and recommends psychotherapy or treatment from another specialist. The frequency of psychiatric consultations and the duration of treatment depend on the patient’s condition and the course of the illness. As a rule, the frequency of visits is higher in the initial phase of treatment. The main examination method of a psychiatrist is a psychiatric interview; further examinations are determined, where necessary.

A referral is not needed to consult a psychiatrist.

Assessment and treatment of memory disorders

Look for appointment times

Middle-aged and elderly people who are struggling with brain fog and forgetfulness, have difficulty remembering words and doing everyday familiar activities or have any other cognitive difficulties are welcome to seek the help of Confido’s memory specialists.

Our team has a clinical neuropsychologist and a neurologist specialising in memory disorders. If necessary, a psychiatrist or another specialist can be involved in the treatment.

The cause of memory problems is often related to mood and anxiety disorders, metabolic disorders and infections, not neurodegenerative diseases. This means that in many cases these problems are fully treatable. Timely intervention is also important with neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease) to help the patient function independently for longer. Neurodegenerative disorders are often accompanied by mental disorders: depression, sleep disorders, behavioural disorders or psychotic symptoms that require psychiatric intervention.

First, we recommend that people with memory problems contact a neuropsychologist at Confido for an initial assessment and, if necessary, a referral to a neurologist or psychiatrist.

The specialist can then have tests done (e.g. blood tests, brain imaging or cognitive function tests), which will lead to diagnosis and suitable treatment for the patient. Multiple consultations with a neuropsychologist are often recommended for coping with the disease.

Relatives of people with diagnosed dementia are also welcome to have a neuropsychologist consultation for advice on how to deal with their loved one’s illness. The right diagnosis and subsequent intervention can significantly improve the quality of life of a person living with a neurodegenerative disease.
