Dr Praxeda Swai MD MMed, psychiatrist

Dr Praxeda is working as a qualified Psychiatrist at Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam since 2012. She conducts specific psychotherapy sessions including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In addition, providing psychotherapy for psychological traumas including Post traumatic stress (PTSD) and adjustment difficulties during crises is her area of expertise. She is a trained and qualified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) psychotherapist.

Furthermore, she is actively involved in the treatment, training, organizing and provision of psycho-education to both caretakers and patients suffering from all kinds of mental illnesses. If necessary, she is not afraid to start pharmaceutical drugs.  

During her years of practice as a medical doctor, she has noticed a big challenge in how the community defines mental illnesses and its causes. Which, consequently, hinders the early treatment and recovery of people suffering from mental illnesses. This has led her to develop an interest in both clinical and research in the areas of Community Mental Health and Rehabilitation.

Dr Praxeda is known to make time for her patients, especially in case of emergencies. She makes her patients feel heard and will never judge them.
