Anxiety

Here at Flourishing Life Psychology, we provide professional services designed to support and treat almost all areas of Adult Psychology. Our services are all custom catered to your specific needs, ensuring that your treatment is carried out using evidence-based practices and using a holistic based approach for the best results possible.

Understanding Anxiety

Symptoms of anxiety can present when an individual is exposed to repetitive experiences of fear, worry, and apprehension over extended periods of time.

Stress

In many cases, stress is a healthy reaction in helping us to cope with life’s challenges. It is the body’s way of responding to demand or pressures. Stress can be caused by both good and bad experiences. Too much stress, or prolonged stress can affect our physical and mental health. Taking steps to cope with situations we find stressful is important so we can function and live productive lives.

Depression/Mood Disorders

Depression can commonly be categorized as feeling ‘sad’ or ‘down’ for extended periods of time and with a higher intensity than one would normally experience these emotions. These symptoms can occur very suddenly and without any apparent reason. Depression is much more than simply sad or down and should be handled in a serious manner by a professional psychologist

Depression often has emotional symptoms such as loss of interest and enjoyment of activities that one once found entertaining, it also has cognitive symptoms such as hopelessness and consistent pessimism. Physical symptoms can also occur, usually manifesting in the form of trouble sleeping and changes in eating habits.

Behaviour and Emotional Regulation

  • Anger Management, Emotional Regulation Difficulties
  • Parenting Skills
  • Relationship/Couple Issues
  • Family/Friendship Relational Issues

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

What causes PTSD

PTSD can be brought on by any unresolved past trauma. PTSD is often associated with soldiers who have experienced extreme stress, but PTSD can be caused by any form of a traumatic event that can happen in the course of a lifetime.

Types of trauma that might cause someone to experience PTSD include either violent or unexpected death of a family member/friend, serious harm or threat of death.

Addictions and Impulse Control

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol/Substance Abuse
  • Gambling
  • Mobile Phone/Internet/Computer/Technology/Social Media Addiction

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is a disorder that causes people to experience many unwanted thoughts, fears, an array of feelings and anxiety. These are known as obsessions and they can have a dramatic impact on peoples day to day lives. In an effort to cope with these obsessions, people develop compulsions or ‘rituals’ that help them cope.

Obsessions

Obsessions are the unwanted thoughts/fears that a person with OCD experiences. Even though these thoughts/fear might make no rational sense, the person still develops fear and anxiety.

Eating/Food Related

Eating Disorders relate to an abnormal way in which some people eat. These eating disorders can be very serious and can cause very real harm to a person’s health, mental health, and one’s relationships.
