Behavioural Therapy For Depression Brisbane
Depression Treatment Brisbane
Brisbane Centre for Psychology offers depression treatment in a safe and welcoming environment.
Depression affects more than 1 in 5 Australians and is widely considered the fourth most prevalent illness in the country. It is a common health problem among people of all ages with a range of effective treatment options available. Our compassionate therapists offer depression counselling and behavioural therapy for depression to get you on the path to improving your mental health.
Are you depressed?
The symptoms of depression aren’t always apparent and tend to affect different people in different ways. However, most people who suffer from depression experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Loss of appetite
- Irritability and anger
- Feeling empty or sad
- Thoughts of suicide or death
- Helplessness or hopelessness
- Feelings of worthlessness, guilt or regret
- Restlessness, unable to concentrate or think clearly
- Physical symptoms (headaches, migraines, stomach aches, chronic pain, etc.)
- Insomnia, sleeping pattern changes (trouble falling asleep or staying asleep).
If you have experienced any of these symptoms that does not mean you are weak or unable to improve your life. You could benefit significantly from professional treatment. Whether you need temporary assistance or are affected by a more complex mental illness such as borderline personality disorder, psychologists at Brisbane Centre for Psychology have the expertise and experience to help you better manage your mental health.
Depression treatment tailored to your needs
Get the support you need from our highly qualified depression therapists.
When you undertake depression treatment, your therapist will use a variety of techniques to help you understand your depression. They will then work through these reasons with you to help you resolve them. The techniques they use will depend on the symptoms and severity. Your psychologist will draw on their experience, knowledge and training to determine the most suitable techniques for your depression treatment plan.
Treating depression isn’t always easy and may be hard at times. Your depression psychologist will be with you as you come to understand the reasons for the feelings you’re experiencing. They will support you and do their utmost to give you hope.
But there’s more to overcoming depression than regular counselling sessions with a depression therapist at our Brisbane psychology clinic. We will encourage you to analyse your own thought patterns, behaviour and relationships. Our aim is to increase your awareness of what causes your depression and how to come to terms with it.
Depression treatment with a psychologist at our Brisbane clinic, whether behavioral therapy for depression or counselling, can increase your self-esteem and hope for the future. But you’ll need to fully engage with the treatment if you’re to see the best results.
