Because pain is not always physical.

Mental Health

As one of the leading treatment centres for Neurological, Psychiatric and Psychological conditions in the Algarve, NeuroLoulé understands that mental health issues can have as debilitating an impact on people’s day-to-day lives as some of the worst physical diseases.

We offer a comprehensive range of diagnostics and treatment plans for all manner of Psychiatric conditions such as Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Grief; Neurological disorders such as Epilepsy, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis; and various types of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease.

How we work

During your initial consultation, we will listen carefully to your concerns and utilise a variety of assessment techniques to accurately diagnose your mental health problems and identify the areas of your life most affected. From there, we work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your individual case and circumstances which, at times, may involve working holistically with other members of our team to ensure improvement in your overall wellbeing.

Our aim is to achieve short-term relief from your condition whilst helping you to develop the tools and techniques that will allow you to build upon and maintain your progress in the long term.

Is Mental Health Care in Algarve Expensive?

It doesn’t need to be. During your initial consultation, we will formulate a treatment plan with you that takes into account any requirements you have, whether time-related or financial, to ensure that you receive the best outcome.

How many sessions will I need?

This depends on your condition, be it long-term or temporary, and what you ultimately aim to get out of your treatment.

Do you have English-speaking Therapists, Counsellors, and Specialists?

NeuroLoulé is proud to offer mental health services to the Portuguese, German and English speaking communities in the Algarve. Rest assured, there are no barriers between you and the care our multi-lingual team can provide.

I’m not sure which service I require. Do I need to see a Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Neurologist, or Psychotherapist?

Whilst you are always welcome to book a consultation with one of our specialists directly without a referral, if in doubt, please consider making an appointment with our primary care GP, who will discuss your concerns with you and match you with the most appropriate member of our team.

What if I simply need someone to talk to?

Get in touch. We all struggle and feel overwhelmed at times, and talking through our struggles with a trained professional when going through difficult periods can help us make sense of our lives. This is particularly true for those caring for a loved one, or simply going through a period of loneliness. Often, a timely, sympathetic ear can prevent mental illness from taking hold in the first place.

Can you cure my mental health problems?

Mental health conditions, whether psychological or neurological, can be extremely complicated and vary from person to person in their severity. NeuroLoulé strives to ensure you receive the optimum level of relief from your condition, but this is also something that takes work and effort on your part. The results of your treatment plan will largely depend on the severity of your condition and your commitment to obtaining long-term change.

Why should I choose NeuroLoulé as my treatment centre?

NeuroLoulé is one of the leading treatment centres for Neurology, Psychiatry, and Psychology in the Algarve. We have been in practice for over two decades, and pride ourselves on providing a calm, reassuring environment, with 100% confidentiality.

All members of our team are highly regarded within their fields so you can relax in the knowledge that you are in safe hands.
