What is TMS treatment?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive, medication-free treatment, proven effective in treating depression, addiction and many other conditions.

Treatment uses pulsing magnetic fields to activate or suppress the brain centres associated with certain medical and psychiatric disorders

“Having worked in psychiatry for over 20 years, it is no exaggeration to say that rTMS treatment has revolutionised the way professionals think about treating patients suffering from severe depression. Resetting the brain patterns goes to the root of the problem without flooding the body with chemicals.

“It’s been a privilege to see patients open up and start to smile again. As the course of treatment progresses there’s more interaction and laughter and we’re able to meet the person who has been trapped by depression for many years.”

“We’re in a time of change in the UK. In recent years mental illness was rarely discussed or even acknowledged but today more and more people are openly speaking about the illness that affects so many of us, and seeking treatment for it.

“TMS is a hugely successful treatment for mental health issues but it is still not widely available in the UK. With so many people impacted by the illness each year, we hope that our service will bring greater awareness and support for mental health sufferers across the UK.”
