Professor Maurice Eisenbruch

Psychiatrist and psychotherapist
My Approach

Each person can reach a fuller mental health potential through a insight into their personal history. The goal is relief of mental suffering, discovery of new and more adaptive ways to deal with stress, and enhanced empowerment to change one's life circumstances. I believe that psychotherapy, appropriately tailored, can be of benefit in helping to achieve these outcomes

About me

I work as a psychiatrist, with a focus on various types of in-depth psychotherapy, and I do not prescribe medication. I have worked at Cambridge, Harvard, Paris as in Southeast Asia. I have special interests such as treating health professionals as well as those of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. I also direct an active research program in Cambodia.
