Psychiatric clinics that specialise in TMS depression treatment

TMS treatment for depression

TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation, is an effective and safe treatment for depression that does not rely on depression medication. As a depression therapy TMS is recommended by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) for patients with depression who have already been treated with two or more antidepressants.

TMS is non-invasive and painless. Pulsed magnetic fields stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain, an area involved in mood regulation. Clinical studies show that this drug-free treatment is effective against depression.

About TMS Australia

TMS Australia exists to serve patients with depression, aiming to bring happiness and laughter back into their lives.

We’ve been offering TMS therapy at our clinic in Sydney since opening our doors in 2014. Since then, our professional psychiatrist services have allowed us to evolve to become Sydney and Melbourne’s largest outpatient TMS mental health provider.

TMS Australia was founded by psychiatrists Professor Paul Fitzgerald and Dr Ted Cassidy, who both have extensive experience treating patients for depression using TMS; Professsor Fitzgerald is an internationally-recognised pioneer of TMS.

If you’d like to learn more from one of our psychiatrists, please call us directly on 1300 867 888 to speak to our intake team. You can also use our online contact form and we will respond to you within one business day.


We have TMS Australia clinics located in several parts of Sydney, including The Hills Clinic in Kellyville, Neutral Bay in the North Shore of Sydney, Miranda in the Sutherland Shire and Sydney CBD, so wherever you are in Australia’s biggest city, we’re here to help.


We are excited to announce the rapid expansion of our TMS clinics to Australia’s second largest city, Melbourne.
