Are You Feeling Out of Control and Overwhelmed with the Symptoms of Anxiety, Depression or PTSD?

If so, take back control of your life with counselling and psychotherapy.

Are you constantly feeling irritation, mood swings or an irrational fear of things, places or people? Perhaps you’re feeling numb, fragile or disempowered, or maybe you experience flashbacks, nightmares or phobias.

If so, you may be suffering from anxiety, depression or PTSD.

Anxiety and depression are normal responses to traumatic events, such as:

  • experiencing sexual, physical or psychological abuse
  • growing up in a chaotic environment
  • experiencing natural disasters such as floods, fires or cyclones
  • coping with living in a war zone or violent environment
  • long-term exposure to poverty
  • other forms of abuse such verbal abuse or bullying

Your natural response to trauma can make you feel like you are stuck in your past. No matter what you do, you struggle to move forward and make the changes you desire.

Traumatic events can leave a painful legacy for anyone and lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Once your emotional development is disrupted when you are young or even in your adulthood by abuse or a traumatic event, your brain may respond by shutting down.

Is depression stopping you from achieving all you want from life?

Having a “shut down” brain makes you experience the symptoms of depression such as:

  • constant feelings of emptiness
  • loss of interest in activities previously found pleasurable
  • lack of motivation or energy for work and your social life
  • changes in sleep regular sleep patters
  • poor concentration and memory
  • an increase or decrease in your appetite
  • thoughts of self harm or suicide
  • thoughts of worthlessness, hopelessness or inappropriate guilt

Is anxiety stopping you from living a the vibrant life you deserve?

Sometimes when our lives become full of stress and pressure, our brain develops a “24-hour internal alarm”, which makes you feel alert even when it’s not necessary. You may feel  as if you are expending a lot of energy but you don’t get anywhere.

You may be experiencing the symptoms of anxiety such as:

  • impaired concentration and difficulty focusing
  • restlessness or edginess when you should be relaxed
  • irritability where you feel tense or jumpy
  • panic attacks or anxiety attacks in social situations
  • anticipating the worst-case scenario or constantly being negative
  • shortness of breath, dizziness, sweaty palms or hyperventalation
  • upset stomach, digestion problems or diarrhea
  • insomnia or other forms of sleeping issues
