Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Stress, anxiety and depression can affect anyone.  Whilst it is normal to occasionally feel a little anxious or down, persistent anxiety, worrying or depression is not.  Persistent stress and anxiety can cause other symptoms such as impatience and irritability, difficulty falling or staying asleep, jaw clenching and teeth grinding, fatigue and tiredness, headaches, muscle tension, lowered immune system and indigestion.  Stress, depression and anxiety can arise from many life situations such as relationships, workplace issues and chronic health problems.  Sometimes people with fertility problems can also experience these emotions.

Where symptoms of stress or anxiety are mild and not persistent, there are many natural forms of treatment that can help.  There are a number of research studies demonstrating that massage and acupuncture are effective at lowering stress hormones and improving mood and stress levels.

Nutritional deficiencies and suboptimal diet can also contribute to stress and anxiety.  This is particularly prevalent in people who have removed foods from their diet due to food allergies or intolerances.  Improving dietary balance and correcting deficiencies with supplements can provide significant improvement for these people.  Some herbal medicines can also reduce stress, lift mood, improve sleep and reduce irritability.  Hormone imbalances can also contribute to stress disorders, and herbal medicines can provide relief in many people.

In cases of significant anxiety or depression it is important to seek the help of a qualified Clinical Psychologist.  Our Psychologist is skilled in a range of techniques including counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnotherapy which can provide assistance.  Psychology bookings can be made as a Private patient with rebates through your Health Fund if you have cover.  We also accept clients under Mental Health Care Plans and Workcover clients.

At Well2 our practitioners work as a clinical team.  For conditions like stress, anxiety and depression we can address the underlying physical and biochemical contributors in conjunction with skilled clinical psychology resulting in the best result for you.
