Welcome to Smart TMS : Bristol
*** Please note: our Bristol clinic is temporarily closing from the end of the day Thursday 2nd April. This is to help stop the spread of the coronavirus and protect both our patients and our practitioners.
Pre-assessment questionnaires and clinical psychology assessments prior to treatment will also continue to be carried out and as these are delivered digitally, we can continue to assess and triage patients ready for treatment when they feel ready. ***
Our Bristol clinic opened in July 2018, located in the city centre between Temple Meads and St Philip’s. The location is close to the train station and well connected for the roads too, making it easily accessible for patients visiting for regular treatment.
The clinic specialises in the provision of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatment for a range of difficult mental health and addiction conditions. Treatments are carried out by our trained technicians and are completely non-invasive – no medication, surgery or anaesthetic are involved. Daily sessions are carried out over a few weeks, as the effectiveness of treatment builds up over a course of treatment.
