SERVICES OFFERED

Dr Strachan maintains a strong focus on psychological therapy. He offers long-term psychodynamic therapy (1-2 sessions per week) to people experiencing longterm depression, anxiety, or recurring patterns which have led to difficulties in relationships, employment, or general functioning. Psychodynamic therapy has a solid evidence base in treating a wide variety of disorders and is well-suited to those who wish to explore and work through their difficulties. In addition to psychodynamic therapy, Dr Strachan offers Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness-based interventions.

Dr Strachan also offers pharmacological management of a broad range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, and post-traumatic stress disorder. He sees patients from 18 years of age to 65 years, however patients outside this age-range may be accepted for psychological therapy on a case-by-case basis.
