Alex had suffered from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for many years before trying TMS.
He tells his story in this video testimonial.
Alex was initially diagnosed with OCD in 1990 and describes how it affected his life, how he heard about Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and the difference it made to his recovery.
“It got so bad that I would constantly retrace my steps to see whether I’d left obstacles for people to trip over. When I was driving I’d drive back and forth over the same piece of road to see whether I’d run people over. I’d check footpaths to see whether I’d hit people and knocked them to the ground, pushed people into canals, that sort of thing. So I was constantly retracing my steps – that would take me a long time. It was very exhausting.”
“I first heard about Smart TMS through my wife Paulette who’d seen the treatment being carried out in America. I’ve tried many, many treatments before. None have really worked but I was very very surprised and very relieved when Smart TMS treatment worked.”
“I first noticed the difference straight after the first 30 minute session. I came out into the foyer and I felt much more relaxed. There weren’t nearly as many thoughts as there were to begin with, in fact there were very few thoughts.
“Smart TMS has changed my life radically. I can function properly now. I can go for a walk, go to work – and there aren’t the constant bombardment of thoughts so I can actually concentrate on what’s going on around me. It just makes the quality of life and the quality of everything I do much better.”
Alex’s wife added:
“I would definitely recommend TMS to people. If they’ve got any doubts they just need to come along and perhaps chat to the staff. We asked lots of questions before we actually came along and yes, I’d absolutely recommend it.”
OCD Treatment with TMS
Transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder is now available at a network of locations in the UK and Ireland. It offers a medication-free alternative for patients who have not responded to traditional treatment methods such as antidepressants or counselling. TMS uses magnetic impulses to stimulate and reactivate areas of the brain associated with the condition.
Smart TMS was established in 2015, dedicated to providing TMS treatment in London at their South Kensington/Brompton Cross centre. The company opened a second clinic in Birmingham in September 2017 and has since expanded to include locations in Dublin, Manchester, Bristol, Havant (South Coast) and now in Edinburgh.
