Depression Therapy North 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. While depression is common among Australians of all ages, there’s a range of depression treatments, therapies and counselling available, including depression counseling and behavioral therapy for depression, which our compassionate depression therapists offer at North Brisbane Psychology in Stafford Heights.
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 experience symptoms like the above, you’re not weak or unable to improve your life, but you could benefit from professional treatment, whether depression counseling, treatment or therapy, with an experienced and qualified depression psychologist at our Brisbane psychology practice.
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 the reasons why you’re feeling depressed and then work through these reasons with you to help you resolve them. The techniques they use will depend on the symptoms and severity of the symptoms, along with your current mental health, with your psychologist drawing on their experience, knowledge and training to determine the most suitable techniques to include in your depression treatment plan.
Therapy for depression isn’t always easy and may be hard at times, but your depression psychologist will be with you as you come to terms with the reasons for the feelings you experience, and to 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. You’ll also be encouraged to analyse your own thought patterns, behaviour and relationships 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.
