Has traditional ‘talk therapy’ not worked for you? You have an understanding of what your anxiety triggers are just no way of changing how you feel. Maybe you are sick and frustrated with sleeping patterns, worry, panic coming out of nowhere, exhaustion, reduced productivity at work, grumpiness, irritability, emotional outbursts, crying, anger, feelings of inadequacy and failure. You should have to put up with this! There are so many options available to you, so much so I wrote a book on it!

Psychotherapist
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy adheres to a case-by-case perspective. Namely, to the assumption that every individual is unique and requires a different course of treatment. The basic working hypothesis is that every analysis is different in its content, in its trajectory, in its frequency and duration. Through the act of free association one speaks freely about anything that comes to mind and engages the issues brought up in depth. The trajectory of treatment is directed by the speech of free association, along with the analyst's interpretations, toward the singular truth of one's symptoms and their subsequent alleviation.

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 Ascot Vale. 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.
