Common Mental Health Conditions


Everybody can feel anxious at times, but an anxiety disorder interferes with your daily life with sensations such as worry, fear, agitation, and being overwhelmed. It may manifest in many variations: generalized anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, or social anxiety to name a few. Anxiety is one of the most common conditions that psychologists treat, and a variety of tools can be used depending on the circumstances.


Depression usually presents as a pervasive low mood associated with other symptoms such as disturbances in enjoyment, motivation, concentration, appetite, and sleep. Combined, these effects can negatively impact relationships, work, and overall well-being. Psychologists assist patients navigate through their feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and despair. Medications (antidepressants) can also play an important role in treatment.

School Refusal

School refusal is a complex issue that is rising in prevalence. The child will often present with both physical and/or emotional symptoms. Your doctor (typically a GP or paediatrician) plays an important role in excluding medical problems. Psychologists can then assist with determining the root cause of the school refusal; working through the intense emotions, and providing tools to assist the child and the parents.

Parenting Issues

A new baby can bring joy, but also significant change and stress for the parents. Postnatal depression (PND), also known as postpartum depression, is a common and treatable mental health condition that affects many new mothers. Additionally, both parents can have difficulty adjusting to the altered family dynamics and responsibilities created from their new addition.


Chronic stress can take a toll on both our mental and physical health. Work, school, finances, and relationships are common causes. Each factor may individually be minor, but the duration of the stress, and the cumulative effect of multiple stressors can create a significant impact. Psychologists understand the complex interplay between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and they provide evidence-based interventions to address stress at its root.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can deeply affect those who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. In addition to symptoms similar to anxiety / depression, the person may experience nightmares, flash backs, and avoidance of triggering situations. PTSD is a complex condition and is often best managed by a combination of psychotherapy and medication.


Grief is a natural response to loss. Typically people go through a range of emotions, and eventually come to a position of acceptance, but sometimes people get stuck in the grieving process. Psychologists can provide support and resources to help navigate the complex emotions of grief and find a path toward healing and resilience.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

ASD is a complex neurodevelopmental condition that affects how individuals perceive the world and interact with others. Its prevalence is rising for reasons that are not completely clear. Early diagnosis and intervention in childhood can result in significant benefits for schooling and development.
