Mental Health Disorders We Treat
Everyone feels anxiety now and then, and of course, there can be good reasons why those feelings are there. But with some people it can become more serious in nature, the worry can often be unrealistic or out of proportion for the situation at hand. Daily life becomes a constant state of worry, fear, and dread. Eventually, anxiety can even dominate a person’s thinking so much that they find it hard to do routine things at work or school, socially, and in their relationships. But there are treatments to ease anxiety so it’s not running your life.
Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues worldwide — thankfully, there are many treatment options available at The Beekeeper. In addition to medication, we have found that psychotherapies such as EMDR, CBT, and behavioural talk therapy are especially effective. It is also important to incorporate anxiety-reducing relaxation techniques, such as yoga and meditation, for the maintenance of reduced symptoms.
Burnout is very real, and sometimes also referred to as adrenal fatigue. Burnout is a form of exhaustion caused by constantly feeling overwhelmed or swamped. It is a result of prolonged emotional, physical, and mental stress that can take a very real toll on your mind and your body.
At The Beekeeper, we understand the serious nature of burnout, and how it can impact anyone from any walk of life. As such, our programme has specific components in it that will help begin the healing process and understand the fundamental changes that need to be facilitated in order for you to not only get back on your feet but begin to thrive and re-engage with life on your terms. You will find clarity, calm, and peace and be equipped with the skills to develop a healthy relationship with work.
The emotional toll that burnout brings on can cause a myriad of mental health struggles. Mindfulness approaches such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) are widely successful interventions for treating burnout and The Beekeeper House is the leading provider of such activities. In addition, Meaning-Centered Therapy (MCT) and other compassion-based approaches are recommended for alleviating the emotional exhaustion brought on by burnout.
The importance of sleep is one of the cornerstones of the work at The Beekeeper, it is fundamentally important for everyone’s well-being. Whether you are struggling with poor quality sleep, or clinical insomnia, The Beekeeper is well placed to support you to overcome these issues. Sleep hygiene, as it is sometimes termed, is a very important part of the work we do. Whereas we are able to address any specific underlying causes through our clinical work, we also take a whole body and mind approach as well. The combination of these will aid you in achieving regular and healthy sleeping patterns.
Although medications do exist for sleep disorders, the most common recommendation for insomnia is a combination of psychotherapy and lifestyle changes. Stimulus control therapy, CBT, behavioural talk therapy, are effective methods for resolving sleep disorders. Relaxation techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation are also used at The Beekeeper.
Anyone can feel sad or depressed at times, this is perfectly normal. However, mood disorders can be more intense, and also last longer. As a result, they can be harder to manage than regular feelings of being sad. Life events and elevated levels of stress can compound these feelings, leading to worsening symptoms of depression and sadness. This can make these feelings harder to regulate or manage.
In addition to this, life’s problems can trigger depression. This can include bereavement, trouble with your family, work-related issues or unresolved trauma.
The risk of depression in women is nearly twice as high as it is for men. Once a person in the family has this diagnosis, their siblings and their children have a higher chance of the same diagnosis, which means treatment is so important.
We can help with the following mood disorders:
When used together, medication management and psychotherapies, such as CBT and interpersonal therapy, are successful in managing symptoms of mood disorders. Family and/or group therapy is also important for identifying behaviours and establishing a support system. Mindfulness-based techniques are effective for the maintenance of stable moods and establishing coping tools.
In the past 3 decades, we have learned an enormous amount about brain functions and interpersonal attachment systems. The clinical community’s understanding of trauma and its role and impact on society is far better understood now than ever before. At The Beekeeper we are not only trauma-informed, we are experts in contemporary trauma theory. Our entire programme, whether it is clinical one-to-one sessions with your psychologist, or more holistic activities, will equip you not only to resolve trauma but empower you to become forward-facing with new skills and coping strategies that enable you to begin to flourish in your life.
A wide array psychotherapies focused on trauma are highly effective for treating PTSD and other trauma-related disorders, depending on your needs. The most commonly recommended include EMDR, CBT, eclectic approaches or imaginal exposure. Mindfulness-based practices focused on identifying triggers and finding peace within oneself also show promise as effective treatment options.
At The Beekeeper, we are well qualified to help you address an eating disorder, and take our approach very seriously with clinical experts developing a programme around your needs. We understand the complexity of addressing the underlying issues that can create the circumstances that lead to such a disorder.
The beautiful environment we have created will give you the space you need to fully focus on the work we need to do together. This will ensure you achieve a resolution to the issues that you need to address to move forward. Our integrative programme will also allow you to achieve a degree of mental clarity, in combination with effective clinical-led support.
We can help with the following eating disorders:
Interdisciplinary approaches are necessary for treating anorexia nervosa. Psychotherapies focused on normalizing eating and not fearing weight gain (such as CBT and DBT) and family therapies for establishing support are most effective. Yoga and meditation are also commonly recommended as anxiety-management tools for promoting relaxation when treatment feels overwhelming.
Clients struggling with bulimia will likely need many avenues of support and treatment. Antidepressants have shown effectiveness for reducing symptoms and urges when used alongside therapies such as interpersonal therapy, CBT, and family therapies. Proper nutrition education is also necessary for curbing urges and achieving healthy nutrition goals.
Overeating, sometimes classified as binge eating disorder, is caused by mood and behavioural issues, so treatment plans need to be crafted to address both. Interpersonal therapy, CBT, and DBT are the most effective for addressing these needs. Medication may be given to improve mood and prevent binge episodes, and relaxation techniques help with reducing anxiety and curbing urges.
Dual diagnosis can sometimes be a slightly confusing phrase, it essentially means that if we are working with a client with issues around addiction, there might be something else going on as well. Our role is to help you get the right support in order to address these issues.
There are several conditions that can underlie addiction disorders. In some cases, medication management is necessary for reducing symptom severity, which is done by our Psychiatrists. Therapy programmes such as motivational interviewing, contingency management, and psychotherapy have proven most effective for co-occurring disorders. Mindfulness-based programmes also show great promise for helping to treat symptoms.
