The team at Dr. Süss’s group psychiatric practice wants to help patients get their lives back under control so that they can enjoy life.
We distinguish between the mind and the body, but consider both as a single entity. The biopsychosocial approach with which we consider every psychiatric illness means that we see people within their individual contexts: with their physical illnesses, their family- or partner-related stress situations, their character traits that give rise to interpersonal problems, their conflicts at the workplace, and their possible social isolation.
Fur us, this means that we arrange further examinations (e.g. an MRT scan of the skull) in consultation with the referring doctor if this is diagnostically and therapeutically helpful. In the case of conflicts with partners or difficult familial circumstances we can invite important attachment figures for discussions in order to have a dialogue. In consultation with patients, it is also possible to make contact with an employer or with the SUVA insurance company, because in most cases we consider keeping one’s job very important.
