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!

As a counsellor I have predominantly dealt with high risk, suicidal and self harm clients. However whilst in the midst of such difficult work I also possess a strength in working with anxiety, stress, communication, self-esteem and a variety of mental health issues. I aim to build an authentic therapeutic relationship in order to decipher what the goals, aspirations and motivations are of a client in order to understand what the path forward looks like. I make sure I take the time to listen, understand and truly comprehend what a client needs and how they want to achieve it within a solution focused mindset

Do you wonder whether your goals and aspirations have been influenced by society? Perhaps if you were truly living for YOU, your goals would look quite different. Anxiety can dominate our lives until we start uncovering what we truly want out of life. Radically accepting yourself - and understanding your true desires and values - can set you on a more meaningful and fulfilling path. Looking at our issues in a Holistic way allows us to understand ourselves better, which fosters self-compassion.

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 Essendon North. 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.
