TMS Treatment and Recovery Inspire Career Change

One patient was so inspired by his own personal experience of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatment that he chose to change his career and retrain as a TMS technician. 

He has now joined the team at Smart TMS so that he can help others on their recovery journey!

Richard’s Story

Richard was originally a qualified chef and restaurateur, owning and managing his own restaurants.

His first involvement with TMS was actually as a patient seeking treatment when after a particularly difficult period in his life, he was suffering from severe anxiety and depression.

Thanks to the course of transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, Richard recovered from the conditions that had so affected his life. He was able to rediscover health and happiness.

Through his own recovery, he was inspired to help others in a similar position. He chose to train as a TMS Technician so that he could work with patients delivering the same treatment that had enabled him to get better.

His goal is to help patients in a similar position. As well as delivering the TMS treatment, his unique experience means that he’s able to support and advise patients, giving them a living example of the difference TMS treatment can make in a person’s life and wellness.

Richard now works for Smart TMS as Bank TMS Technician. This means that he can be found working in any of our clinic locations across the UK or Ireland, as he will travel when and where he is needed.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of depression and anxiety without drugs.

Additionally, there is clinical evidence for a variety of further potential treatment applications including: addictions (alcohol, cocaine, meth, nicotine, gambling) as well as DPD (Depersonalisation Disorder), OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), BPD (borderline personality disorder).
