Clinical Psychology

Quite often medical problems affect a patient’s psychological and emotional state negatively. Conversely, psychological factors, as well as an individual’s emotional state contribute in various disorders, such as gastrointestinal problems, heart diseases, skin conditions or conditions of the respiratory system.

HYGEIA’s Clinical Psychology Department, the first one of its kind established in a general private hospital in Greece, aims at the best possible care for the patient; care is viewed and treated together as “body and mind” rather than solely as a medical problem.

The Department’s main goals are: provision of psychological services to inpatients, outpatients and their relatives in collaboration with the medical and nursing staff, and education and training for health professionals.

For patients hospitalized at HYGEIA Hospital:

Short-term Supportive Psychotherapy in patients with:

  • Cardiological problems (e.g. By -pass surgery)
  • Pathological problems (e.g. ulcer, hypertension)
  • Skin conditions
  • Malignancies
  • Hemiplegia, paraplegia following an accident or cerebral episode
  • operations leading to amputation
  • Other conditions
