Need more help deciding?

Everybody feels worry or sadness at some point in life. These are normal reactions to the everyday emotional journey that people experience. Anxiety and depressive disorders are different – they can cause such high levels of distress and unhappiness that they begin to impede one’s ability to function in everyday life. Diagnosis of these conditions can sometimes be hard to achieve, but it is integral to working one’s way to a cure through treatment.

For both anxiety and depression the route towards a diagnosis is very similar. No simple blood or physical examination exists to diagnose these disorders – a diagnosis is achieved through a series of structured questions performed by a healthcare practitioner. Some of the more common symptoms experienced by an affected individual include:

Anxiety:

  • Constant worry.
  • Restlessness.
  • Lack of sleep.
  • Heart palpitations.

Depression:

  • Intense emotions such as sadness and grief.
  • Unusually persistent emotions.
  • Lethargy.

How Do Depression And Anxiety Develop?

Like in the case of other health conditions, there are various factors that may lead to the development of depression and anxiety. Family history and genetic elements are great predictors of the diseases. A person with a family history of depression or anxiety is, as research suggests, more likely to develop one of the disorders in response to traumatic life events such as loss of a loved one or a divorce. As a general rule, a trigger-like traumatic event or life episode is the key to understanding why some individuals develop depressive or anxiety disorders.

Treating The Disorders

Traditionally, the initial treatment recommendations are lifestyle focused – nutrition and exercise interventions that work well to reduce the symptoms in many people, for example. Medications such as anti-depressants are also commonly used to treat conditions such as anxiety and depression – for many patients, medicines can in fact prove to be very effective at reducing the symptoms.

However, one disadvantage of the above treatment methods is that whilst they manage the symptoms, they do not address the underlying cause. Counseling sessions such as those provided by Thriveworks
Providence are effective at identifying and subsequently treating the fundamental cause of the disorder. Counseling services, combined with other forms of therapy, can therefore be a very powerful solution for the patient. So why not get in touch with us today and arrange your first consultation with one of our expert counselors.

Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
