Smart TMS

Dr Leigh Neal

Smart TMS was founded by Dr Leigh Neal, a consultant psychiatrist.

Dr Neal is a psychiatrist with over 20 years’ experience. He has a longstanding interest in the biological causes of mental health issues and is a member of the International Neuromodulation Society.

Dr Neal comments:

“I was delighted when NICE approved the use of rTMS in the treatment of depression. I have been following the development of the technology for years and was really impressed by the results. Now that it is finally approved for UK use, rTMS is going to improve the lives of many depressed patients significantly and I am looking forward to playing a part in that.”

“Treatments for depression have always focussed on making patients less depressed. The great thing about rTMS is that patients start to feel positive again. Their confidence increases, motivation returns, language skills are enhanced and they start to go out socialising again. You can almost literally see patients’ brains lighting up when they go through the rTMS treatment”

Regarding the future development of rTMS in other mental health conditions and other physical conditions, Dr Neal observes:

“This is an incredibly exciting field. There is research going on all round the world into different conditions.”

“Here at Smart TMS, we are going to make new, safe treatment protocols available to patients who want to improve their lives.”

rTMS at The Smart Clinics in London

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy treatment is available at Smart TMS, based at The Smart Clinics, Brompton Cross, London. Smart TMS was the first UK clinic to offer treatments for anything other than depression.

On the basis of research, we believe that rTMS – Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation could offer sufferers of DPD an alternative treatment option using transcranial magnetic stimulation to work directly on the associated areas of the brain. It would also offer the benefit of being a non-medication approach, avoiding potentially unpleasant side-effects associated with drugs.
