Consultations in a time of Covid-19

In response to the challenge of no longer being able to see clients in my rooms, I am available for phone, Zoom and email consultations. Please feel free to contact me to discuss how this might work for you. We’re all in this together!

The basics

Possibly the most common psychological problem to affect Australians, depression is characterised by a deep loss of hope, along with a cluster of other symptoms.

More information

Many people think that depression is about being constantly tearful, and it is true that many people who experience depression are sad and tearful.  However, some people do not cry in response to sadness or hopelessness, and may even be unaware of these underlying feelings.  But if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, and they are severe or persist for more than a few weeks, it is important to seek  help:

  • an ongoing sense that life is not worth living
  • sleeping difficulty
  • lack of pleasure in anything
  • social withdrawal, irritability
  • guilt
  • poor concentration.

Seek help if symptoms are severe or persist.For twenty years I have been helping people deal with and resolve depression. Starting with a thorough assessment of your particular symptoms and relevant history, and taking into account the kind of goals you would like to set for yourself, together we can design a range of practical things to do that will break the depressive pattern.
