For most of us, there’s likely to be times when we could do with some support as we navigate life’s challenges, transitions and crossroads. Perhaps you’re here because you simply want someone to listen to you, I mean really listen to you as you navigate some pretty difficult stuff. No solutions, no ‘homework’, just compassion, understanding and an empathic ‘ear’.Or perhaps you want to create some positive shift in your life, need help getting unstuck or navigating a career crossroad - even change course completely. Maybe it’s time to bring some lightness into your life, to take some simple steps to feel better all round.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Hawker. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
