A WARM WELCOME
TO HEALING MINDS
If you are experiencing mental health problems, every day can feel like a struggle. Relating to the outside world can
be an overwhelming challenge, and treatment can seem never-ending. If this is a point where mental and behavioural health problems compromise your basic functioning, this is a crossroads for you, where you can reach out for support and treatment.
Healing Minds is a private Mental Health clinic. In our clinic we focus on helping those who suffer from depression
and other mood disorders, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, or coping with life stresses (for ADHD see below). If you choose to take this step with us, we envision your road to recovery to be by providing the most effective treatment for you with the longest lasting effects, be that medication, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), or psychotherapy.
ADHD is a neurodevelopment disorder. If you think you might have ADHD you will need to contact your GP first who will need to send us a comprehensive referral. In order to proceed with the referral we will need to receive your Primary and Secondary School reports or a full report from a Registered Psychologist before we see you. At the time of the assessment you will need to bring a parent or a long term partner if you are over 35y.o.

THE FIRST TO BRING YOU TMS THERAPY IN NZ
TMS is a non-invasive technique for modulating the brain, helping it going back to function in a healthy way. It is used to improve symptoms of depression and other psychiatric and neurological problems, by stimulating healthy communication between the nerve cells. This treatment should be especially considered if you have not responded to antidepressant medication, cannot tolerate their side-effects, or simply prefer a drug free treatment.
