Depression is one of the most common psychological disorder. Depression, especially chronic depression, can severely affect our quality of life. Some common signs and symptoms of depression experienced by our clients include feeling sad for no reason, lack of interest in daily activities such as working/sleeping/studying/eating, low energy levels, low moods, and feeling of hopelessness.
If you feel you have the symptoms of depression, you should consult with our team of Psychologists. They will use reliable psychometric tests to diagnose your depression and its severity and then decide a customised treatment plan you using Evidence-based Psychological Therapies.
In certain circumstances, experiencing anxiety is normal for us. Moderate levels of anxiety will improve our performance, especially in a competitive situation, as it increases our level of alertness and arousal.
When we start experiencing anxiety on a regular basis without an external trigger, it can be a very unpleasant feeling. If you are experiencing anxiety it is likely you will have a feeling of nervousness, irritability, tightness in chest, butterflies in the stomach, tension in your body, stuttering and other behaviour patterns.
If you are struggling with anxiety, you should contact our team of experienced psychologists. They can help you with proper diagnosis and treatment of your anxiety.
Psychological Trauma or Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an intense emotional and psychological response to an event, either recent or in the past, that was life-threatening. It can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, such as rape, a natural disaster, or war. PTSD can result in flashbacks and negative emotions that severely impact the quality of life. It’s important to seek help to manage PTSD and at our practice we offer effective treatments such as EMDR, TF-CBT and DBT for PTSD. Contact us for more details and to make an appointment.
Our Psychologists provide effective treatment to clients experiencing excessive or chronic stress disorder. Stress can be very debilitating. It can adversely affect our health. Both our body and mind get affected and we may have symptoms such as headaches, stomach upsets, back pain, insomnia. When stressed, we will get tired quickly, feel sick and find it hard to concentrate or think clearly.
So, how do we deal with stress? There are both healthy ways and unhealthy ways to deal with stress. The healthy ways include regular exercise, socialising, engage in fun and relaxing activities, adopt a healthy lifestyle and being active. The unhealthy ways to deal with stress include smoking, consuming alcohol, using drugs, over-sleeping, overeating and procrastinating.
If you are experiencing stress, it is beneficial to consult our team of experienced psychologists. They will use proper psychometrics to test your stress levels and develop a customised treatment plan in consultation with you. During treatment, our psychologists use evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help our clients manage stress. Contact us for more details and to make an appointment.
About 1.9% of people in Australia are affected by Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD). Obsessions are recurring and persistent thoughts or images. Whereas the urge to carry out certain behaviours or rituals is known as compulsions. OCD can significantly reduce the quality of life. People with OCD feel shame while carrying out these compulsions. Such feelings can further increase the problem and also the sense of shame. There are effective treatments available for OCD including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Contact us for more details and to make an appointment.
