psycho-therapy

Simple psychotherapeutic / counselling techniques can help bring positive changes in your life

We offer cognitive-behaviour, rational-emotive and/or motivational enhancement therapies for adults and simple behaviour modification therapy for children

mind-body therapy

Traditional techniques like yoga / meditation / relaxation / breathing exercises help you cope with daily stressors

We also offer simple lifestyle modifications through traditional methods for coping with daily hassles, stressors and severe mental health issues

Psychological tests

We offer a range of psychological tests for assessment of intelligence (IQ), personality and present psychological status.

We also have a vast collection of questionnaires and rating scales and instruments for an objective evaluation of the present clinical/psychological status.

We utilize these resources not just for clinical purpose but also for research purposes.

brain stimulation therapy

We have one of the most modern brief pulse electro-convulsive therapy equipment for brain stimulation which is offered in rare instances of immediate danger to patient's and/or others' lives.

This life-saving procedure is conducted under general anaesthesia in the presence of experienced psychiatrists, anaesthetists and nurses at a nominal cost (almost one fourth of private cost!)

Keeping with our strict policy of rational and ethical practice, we offer electro-convulsive therapy ONLY after taking written informed consent from the patient and/or relatives.

approximate cost of services

Ours being a charitable and premier ISO/NAAC/NABL accredited hospital, we offer quality services at minimal cost.

Our OPD consultation is FREE of cost.

Our general ward indoor admission expenditure is almost one-tenth of private hospital admission cost but with significantly better and reliable services. We also provide private rooms at nominal cost. 

Please note, this DOES NOT INCLUDE the cost of medications, injections, IV fluids and other miscellaneous prescriptions.

(The above information is for descriptive purpose ONLY. Actual cost incurred could differ based on the patient's requirements and hospital policies)

We treat one and all, belonging to any age-bracket

Children can be difficult and adolescents can be argumentative. If you, as a parent, are facing this situation - we are here to HELP!

You can expect expert guidance with home-based easy to practice behaviour modification tips for effectively moulding your child's behaviour and better coping for yourself.

Pharmaco-therapy is considered ONLY if behaviour therapy is not found satisfactory.

ADULTS

From hassles of daily life to family & relationship issues, from anxiety & panic to depression & suicidality, from mania to schizophrenia, from smoking & alcohol to ganja/charas & brown sugar, we cover it all. 

Keeping with our motto, we provide the best available treatment with minimal admissions and interventions ensuring best value for resources and maximum satisfaction.

We generally offer a combination of pharmaco-therapy and psycho-therapy/counselling for all conditions.

Geriatric Age.jpg

OLD AGED

Senior citizens of our society need an element of sensitivity, utmost care and understanding that is unlike younger adults. 

Years of productive happiness may be shattered with certain unavoidable events in this age group - retirement, isolation, widowhood, financial and physical dependency, chronic medical illness, forgetfulness and dementia may appear to make life not worth living any more. 

We strive to be the sunrise of hope to bring back life to their remaining years!
