Depression Counselling in Perth

We all feel down from time to time, but depression is different. It can affect our day-to-day life; draining motivation and making it hard to even get out of bed some days. At times, it can be difficult to understand whether you’re actually living with depression or not, and it can take time to seek help.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might benefit from psychological counselling in our West Perth clinic:

  • Lack of self-worth
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Indecisiveness
  • Irritability
  • Avoidance of other people
  • Lack of motivation
  • Constant anxiety
  • Oversleeping, or inconsistent sleeping patterns
  • Either overeating or lack of appetite
  • No energy
  • Lack of interest in your hobbies
  • Less interest in engaging with friends and family
  • Poor productivity at work

How treatment for depression can help

It isn’t always clear why we are feeling depressed. It can stem from a distressing life event, bereavement, childhood experiences, alcoholism, physical illness or circumstances that have left you feeling stressed, alone or helpless. Sometimes there may appear to be no particular reason at all.

By speaking to a trained professional in our West Perth clinic, we can help you gain a better understanding of where your feelings of depression are stemming from, and support you with strategies to manage these feelings.

This might include everything from self-help tips and useful breathing exercises, to psychotherapy and other forms of depression treatment.  At Ashcliffe Psychology in West Perth, we employ a variety of therapies to assist with the treatment and management of depression, including:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Schema therapy
  • EMDR

Our team in West Perth has years of experience helping people with depression make changes towards a more positive mind-set and lifestyle. Together, we will ascertain the most suitable combination of evidence-based treatments for your experience of depression.
