The brain and the body are not separate entities. Mental or emotionally stressful situations can be the most difficult health issues to deal with for the majority of people. Often people are reticent about talking about mental health problems as there is a perceived stigma in our society, however, they should be addressed like any other medical condition. At The Cremore Clinic we have invested heavily in our own mental health and would like to help you do the same.

  • As your local GP we are often familiar with your medical position. This gives us the unique ability to recognize what might be at the heart of your problem and provide an appropriate solution.
  • We offer a number of ancillary services like psychotherapists and counsellors.
  • Mental health issues can strike at any age. Whether you’re young or old, it’s important to tend to your emotional well being as it can have just as much of an impact on your life as any physical problem can.


If you’ve ever had a panic attack, you know that they can be one of the most traumatic experiences of your life. Symptoms can include terrifying shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, pounding heart-beat, pins and needles, sweating, dizziness, dryness in the mouth and other symptoms suggestive of a heart-attack or stroke. Recognizing these things and overcoming them can be stressful, but our staff are experienced in helping you do just that. We are ready to talk, listen and prescribe the appropriate treatment so you can prevent the awful experience from happening again.

  • While it is difficult to deal with panic attacks, it is often good news that your symptoms aren’t the result of a heart condition. Recognizing the problem is the first step in solving it.
  • Consulting a GP is often the best route when it comes to dealing with panic attacks. Because they already understand your medical history, they are in the best position to sympathize and advise.
  • Relaxation methods such as breathing techniques and yoga can be a huge help when it comes to coping with panic attacks. However, it can also be necessary to undergo deeper psychotherapy and consider the use of medication.
