What can Dr Bloomfield help with?

Updated: Jun 18, 2019

Mental health problems can take a variety of forms and Dr Bloomfield can help across a range of mental health problems. These can include:

  • Feeling low or down, hopeless guilty, tearful and having low energy levels.

  • Problems sleeping such as difficulties getting off to sleep and staying asleep.

  • Feeling very worried about things and feeling “on edge”.

  • Feeling very nervous or scared around other people.

  • Having unwanted distressing thoughts or images.

  • Feeling the need to do things a particular way or over and over again until it “feels right”.

  • Having panic attacks.

  • Being very scared and avoiding certain situations, objects or animals.

  • Having other experiences that can be distressing like hearing voices, having beliefs that other people don’t have and feeling like someone or something is trying to harm you.

  • Experiencing unwanted memories or bad dreams after a sad or bad event.

  • Bereavement and loss.

  • Low self esteem

  • Relationship problems including problems forming and maintaining stable relationships with other people.

Sometimes it may be difficult to say exactly what the “problem” is, in which case it can be helpful to think about how you would like things to be different. Identifying a mental health problem means that you have become a step closer to overcoming what is distressing you. Depending on the nature of the problem you may be offered a choice of either a psychotherapy like cognitive-behavioural therapy and/or medicines based on the most up-to-date medical research evidence. It may also be necessary to do some further medical tests, in which case these will be discussed with you.
