Psychiatrists are medical doctors who have specialised in the treatment of mental illness. They often use medication to treat their patients, but are also able to offer psychotherapy. They are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa under the specialist register.
Dr. Ameer's private practice specializes in providing compassionate, experienced and highly- confidential psychiatric and psychotherapy services in Cape Town and Bellville. Dr Ameer is a medical doctor who specialised in psychiatry. She provides psychiatric care to patients with a range of psychiatric illnesses and disorders such as depressive and bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, eating disorders, substance use disorders, dementia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Our philosophy centres around treating the whole patient: mind, body and spirit. We believe that the judicious use of psychopharmacology (the use of psychiatric medications to treat mental disorders), coupled with psychotherapy (talk therapy), and other alternative treatments can bring about transformative changes to the lives of those suffering from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other common mental conditions and life issues.
In our current fast-paced culture of high-stress and hard work it is vitally important that we take time out for ourselves on a regular basis to check in with our own personal needs and desires. While it is true that mental disorder such as major depression and anxiety have strong genetic underpinnings that may be out of our control, it is equally true that our ways of thinking and looking at the world, as well as our individual daily behaviours, contribute significantly to our overall levels of well-being.
If you are ready to: Understand the underlying reasons for your unhelpful behaviours Transform your life from the inside-out and no longer feel fear, sadness and pain Stop feeling trapped by seemingly unchangeable life circumstances Heal the past and live mindfully in the present Have healthy, loving and mutually rewarding personal relationships and experience true happiness, peace, joy and contentment, then our services are right for you.
