About the department

The psychiatry, psychology, a psycho-oncology department at Teknon Medical Center Barcelona, deals with diagnosing and treating patients with psychological illnesses. The department has a highly qualified team of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists with extensive professional and educational experience. During the first visit, doctors consider the patient's biological, psychological, environmental, and social factors and how they affect the course of mental illness. This approach makes it possible to establish a personalized and trusting relationship with the patient, the main element of good treatment. In addition, the department has therapists who specialize in cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic therapy. The goal of treatment is to identify and change the patients' negative thoughts to improve their quality of life.

The department deals with all types of pathologies caused by stress, obsessive-compulsive disorders, phobias, depression, eating disorders, emotional disorders of pregnant women, and couples problems. Doctors treat both adults and teenagers. In addition, the department offers phone consultations and online sessions. Doctors collaborate with other departments to holistically treat organic pathology and emotional and mental health issues.
