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. We offer effective Trauma Counselling to help our clients who have been through a traumatic event in life. We use evidence-based and best of breed treatments to provide effective relief to our clients who are exhibiting symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (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.
Self-esteem is our core belief about ourself. Our self-esteem is reflected in our actions. Our self-esteem changes over our lifetime. Sometimes it is in the healthy range and we have a positive view of ourselves and sometimes it is in an unhealthy range and we will have a bad opinion of ourselves. We are more likely to succeed in our endeavours if we have a healthy self-esteem. The opposite is true if we have a low self-esteem. We will then lack confidence and exhibit traits of nervousness and impulsiveness. Psychologists help in changing the self-talk of a person leading to improvements in their self-esteem.
