Rory has been having treatment for depression at our London TMS clinic.
For the benefit of anyone considering the treatment, he shares his own experience in this new video.
Rory explains the background to his treatment and how he felt when suffering from depression:
“I’ve been on medication for depression.
“People look at you… they see this person who looks confident and everything and inside, just half the time you’re crumbling.
“Two months ago I wouldn’t even have been outside, you know, I’d have been hid in the house. I’d only go out for a walk when it had gone dark.
“It’s very lonely, you know, you’re in your own little world.
He is shown having a TMS treatment during the video, where he tells the TMS technician:
“I think you’re more excited than frightened because you just think there’s something else that can help you, you know, do something for you.”
After TMS Treatment
Rory explains how different things feel after TMS treatment:
“This has certainly enabled me to take back control to that degree where I can work, I can live some kind of normality.
“I would tell anybody if they can do this just at least speak to them here, speak to the doctors.
“Sounds a bit cliched but without it I more than likely wouldn’t have a life – you wonder where you would be now.”
Friends and Family Benefit Too
As Rory explains, depression doesn’t just affect the patient, but those around them too. He says:
“When you see what effect it does have on people who are close to you, they getting broken too because they can’t stand seeing what it does to you
“It’s just fantastic that there’s something out there that can actually give me my life back and give them their life back too.”
Private rTMS Treatment
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).
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy offers a different approach for helping patients with these difficult mental health conditions. Treatment works directly on the brain to correct patterns and pathways through a process known as neuromodulation. It is a non-invasive treatment which uses the power of magnets rather than medication or more invasive treatments.
The treatment is now available for private patients at Smart TMS, a specialist provider of the innovative treatment with an expanding network of locations around the UK and Ireland including:
