Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Ask Your Own Neurology Question

The type of doctor would be a neurologist.

I am not sure that is what you are asking.

Has your son not been seeing a neurologist?

He has ocd and behaviour similar to aspergers etc tc...he's seen many phychiatrists etc....i am his sole carer , I MUST find more extensive help for him. He is suffering 24/7. Please please help ..he needs to se someone and work with them . He is very hesitant about the cognitive therapy's on offer that we have had.

I am not sure what you are asking at this point.

We answer questions only.

Psychiatrists treat OCD

Psychologists do behavioral therapy, which should be done along with medication.

Is he on medication?

What is your specific question about the situation?

Ask Your Own Neurology Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
But also are there dr's or experts he could begin to see , here in Sydney
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
have you left ??
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
where are you ??

He is already seeing the experts.

Doctors generally are not going to teach mindfulness.

First, will he be willing to see a medication instructor or psychologist who teaches it?

Ask Your Own Neurology Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
he will.He ants to learn ways of allevieting the anxiety

OK

You need to talk with his psychologist and ask for a referral

He has a psychologist is that correct?

Ask Your Own Neurology Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
He does.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
What can i do if his psychologist doesn't know who to refer him to.?

OK

That is where to start.

Ask for a referral to a psychologist who teaches mindfulness therapy.

Or, find him a meditation group that does.

Here are some resources...

Here are mindfulness course in sydney
