Effective Treatment for Mood Disorders at The Cabin Dubai
Mood disorders, sometimes called ‘affective disorders’, affect a person’s mood or attitude. They generally increase thoughts and feelings to the point of mania, depress the same feelings to the clinical depression range or do a combination of the two. The most common affective disorders we see in our practice include major depression, dysthimia (minor depression), manic episodes or the combination of depression and mania, resulting in bi-polar symptoms.
For many people, major mood disorders result from an imbalance or deficiency in neurotransmitters in the brain. The Cabin Dubai strongly recommends medical evaluation and diagnosis for clients with severe mood disorders, and can help arrange a consultation with our staff psychiatrist. While psychotherapy (talk therapy) can be very effective in treating minor and major depression, some clients may require medication in order to stabilise enough to allow treatment to be effective.
Many clients experience disturbances in mood (feeling sad, blue, hopeless or helpless) but do not actually meet the criteria for major clinical depression. Mood disruptions can be caused by dramatic changes in life circumstances, real or perceived feelings of loss, stress or undesirable changes in one’s environment.
The Cabin Dubai offers multiple types of therapy to its depression clients, but Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is often the most effective and least time consuming of therapy models. We have found that a motivated client, involved in one to two therapy sessions a week for four to six weeks, can often address their concerns, overcome the problems they are facing and gain skills they can use to prevent further mood disruption episodes.
Please note: if you prefer, we offer Telehealth services, allowing you to receive treatment from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
