Can issues like Depression, Anxiety, Panic, Stress and similar change?
They did in my life, and I’m not alone:
“There is more sunshine in my mind. I don’t wake up in dread. I feel way more competent in my ability to handle things and know I have the tools needed to tackle any obstacle or fear in life.”
“I felt like my head/thoughts were controlling me and my life and going downhill all the time – no light at the end of the tunnel. I always felt as a whole I wasn’t happy during my life. I know now I am able to control my life/thoughts/how I see things – I feel like I have a second chance to start a new life.”
“When I began therapy I was experiencing 5-7 panic attacks a day. I was heavily restricted in day to day life avoiding busy places like shopping centres in case I’d have a panic attack in public. After just 7 sessions I have not had a panic attack in months. My anxiety is reduced 85% and I feel more confident in busy areas. I am also better at dealing with situations that in the past would cause me anxiety. I highly recommend it to anyone with anxiety.”
When depression hits due to life events such as grief, bullying, lost job, or anything that drags your down, then it can be lifted. Similarly a depression that comes about when anxiety, stress, and worry drag down your mood is usually responsive to the right therapy. The first thing for us to do is to have you come in for an assessment to determine as much as we can about your depression. After that I can let you know if I think I can help you or recommend someone who can. Until we’ve done the assessment I can’t say if I can take you on or not, so there’s no charge for the assessment. I lived decades with depression not realising it can lift. Don’t let that be your story too!
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD sounds complex and dramatic, but usually people suffering from it go unnoticed. It doesn’t have to look dramatic to ruin a life. Any situation of fear can potentially trigger PTSD, a locked in fear of that situation that can come out when triggered by simple things. Usual signs would be people having nightmares, poor sleep, flashbacks, panic attacks, intrusive thoughts or memories of the event. This often results in the person being angry a lot, isolating themselves from others, and gradually withdrawing from life. It can look like depression in some cases. PTSD is treatable and can really change greatly in a short space of time.
