Living with a skin condition can have a significant impact on quality of life and emotional wellbeing. Our aim is to not only treat your skin, but to help you lead the life you want to. We work under the principle that psychological wellbeing is at the forefront of medical care for our patients.
Psychological factors such as stress can have an effect on many skin disorders. Having a skin disorder can also affect your mood and behaviour. Psychological treatment can be helpful in both coping with and treating many skin disorders, either alone or in combination with conventional medications.
