Therapy for Depression

Although it is quite normal to feel down from time to time, sometimes people with stronger or extreme feelings of apathy, emptiness, low energy, self doubt, irritability or depression may need to seek help in managing these feelings.

Depression can change how you think, feel, and how you function, as well as affecting your ability to sleep, eat or work.  Depression can make you feel overwhelmed.

CBT and CFT are effective therapies to resolve depression. 

Equanimity Clinical Psychology Services are the Plymouth CBT and CFT experts.

Therapy for Anxiety

Feelings of unease, restlessness or worry can be signs of anxiety. It is normal to experience a little anxiety at times. Sometimes it can even help us to perform well.

At times it can become a problem. With excessive or ongoing anxiety we may feel irritable, have concentration problems, tearfulness, or difficulty sleeping. We may experience a range of physical symptoms such as tension, racing heart, breathlessness or panic attacks.  

CBT and CFT are effective therapies to alleviate anxiety.

Therapy for Trauma

Following a traumatic event  which you witness or were involved in can lead to experiencing a number of unfamiliar psychological emotions, quite often with difficulty in collecting thoughts and handling feelings about what has happened. For some, it can take a long time for symptoms to appear, for others it is much quicker. Some people  experience long periods when their symptoms are less noticeable, followed by periods where they get worse. Other people have constant severe symptoms. Depression, anxiety or anger may be present as well as other psychological difficulties or physical symptoms. 

Psychological therapy,  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can be effective in working through trauma, offering valuable help in rebuilding lives of those who experience post-traumatic stress or PTSD. 

Psychological therapy can help you move forward in life, despite what may have happened to you. We can help you as your private counsellor or therapist.
