INTRODUCTION Erik Voerman
After completing my medical exams for becoming a doctor and later on for becoming a General Practitioner, I specialized in Psychiatry (University of Groningen).I have been a registered psychiatrist and psychotherapist since 1994, working in Holland and also for several years abroad in China and the Middle East.
KIND OF PROBLEMS AND THE TREATMENT
My patients are referred by their GP for treatment for a diverse range of issues, including for example:
The problems may be related to the individual, stem from interpersonal issues or may be work related. Alcohol and drug addiction will not be treated in the practice. After the intake a plan of treatment will be discussed and drawn up.
Treatment will vary depending on the type of condition being treated and may include:
Medication: In several cases a medical drug treatment in combination with psychotherapeutic sessions may have a beneficial effect.,including for example depression, anxiety disorders, ADHD and psychotic symptoms.
Cognitive behavior treatment can be used to treat depressive symptoms, anxieties and bad habits.
