For the treatment of depression
St Helens Private Hospital has an innovative program using a number of treatment tools to offer hope to people with psychiatric disorders such as depression. This treatment is particularly helpful for individuals who have struggled to achieve wellness with traditional therapies alone. The TMS program is supervised by one of our leading psychiatrists, and several of our accredited psychiatrists are available to administer treatments. TMS has gained increasing attention in recent years as research is progressively conducted to establish its role in effective treatment programs.

TMS is a non-invasive treatment option that uses magnets to stimulate areas of the brain with minimal side effects.
The focused magnetic field is used to activate specific areas of the brain. Repeated TMS stimulation progressively alters brain activity improving depression in some patients.
TMS requires no anaesthesia or medication and generally you may go about normal activities immediately following the treatment.
It has gained increasing attention in recent years as research is progressively conducted to establish its role in treatment programs.
