Mental Illness

There are various mental illnesses that we can help you with:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Schizophrenia

  • Personality disorders

Anxiety and depression are the two most common mental illnesses people experience.

 

Anxiety is characterised by excessive worry, uneasiness, fear, dread, and avoidance behaviour. Anxiety can cause inner turmoil that debilitates your wellbeing and everyday function.

 

Depression causes you to feel flat or down, acompanied by a loss of enjoyment in favourite hobbies and activities. Depression can also contribute to sleep issues, leaving you constantly tired and with a loss of energy and motivation.

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, causes severe high and low moods that can disrupt your sleep, energy levels, thinking, and behaviour. Bipolar disorder causes periods of elevated mood, excessive energy, and even psychosis, coupled with periods of feeling depressed and a sense of hopelessness.

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder in which you experience abnormalities in your reality. It can result in psychosis: such as hallucinations, delusions, and distortion in thinking and behaviour. This  impairs your ability to function on a daily basis.

Personality disorders are long-term patterns of dysfunctional thinking, behaviour, and emotion that is severe and inflexible. It causes distress, and makes functioning in everyday life challenging. You may struggle changing behaviours, adapting to situations, and maintaining healthy relationships.
