We can also help you with other types of therapies, such as relationship counselling.
Depression affects different people in different ways. It can affect your body, your moods, emotions, feelings and thoughts. You may think that you are simply under the weather or feeling tired.
It is quite normal for you to feel tense or concerned when facing a potentially stressful situation and it might affect your sleep patterns, appetite levels and the ability to concentrate.
A panic attack is an exaggeration of your body’s normal response to fear, stress or excitement. It is not uncommon for people to feel that they are having a heart attack as symptoms can include chest pain, breathlessness, sweating and nausea.
Bereavement is a distressing but common experience. Sooner or later most of us will suffer the death of someone we love. Yet in our everyday life we think and talk about death very little.
A fear becomes a phobia when you have an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation (eg. going outside) or an object (eg. buttons). You will often begin to organise your life around avoiding the thing that is causing you anxiety.
