Are you experiencing stress, anxiety or depression — whether related to the current COVID crisis or from before? Maybe you don't feel at your best, not as in control as you'd like. Perhaps you've had angry outbursts, tears or panic attacks. It's not uncommon and can be confusing. As a counsellor and therapist, I'd like to help. We can work together to overcome painful stress and anxiety. If you're facing challenges with relocation, work or family, we can deal with those difficulties too.

It is said that we live in an ‘age of anxiety.’ It is not only you or me that experiences anxiety and depression . Mental health issues challenge most of us at some time in our lives. We need to develop resilience and resolve in the face of uncertainties, anxieties and challenges. This enables us to grow, flourish and develop practical wisdom. To face the challenges of life on our own is difficult. It is helpful to recognise that we need the support of significant others. As a psychologist, I provide a secure environment in which to turn your mental health concerns into opportunities for well-being

Have you been feeling overly unhappy, depressed or anxious? Have you had panic attacks, issues with eating, loss of energy or exhaustion, sexual difficulties, relationship issues? Have you seen a psychiatrist or a psychologist and the treatment didn't "work"? Psychotherapy can help people change old patterns of actions, thoughts, feelings, and relationships. As you gain more self-awareness and self-understanding, you might feel more empowered to make life choices on your own terms. Many people experience not only a reduction of their symptoms, but can live richer and more fulfilling lives, even after they stop going to therapy.

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 Sydney. 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.
