Mangrove House - Sydney based counsellors

Depression and anxiety therapists, Sydney

Living with depression and despair can be overwhelming, let alone trying to overcome it alone. We can help you reconnect with hope in a safe and supportive environment. 

Depression manifests in different ways for everyone. Some of us go through the motions – work, family, meeting our basic needs – while feeling numb inside. Some of us are more profoundly affected, unable to get out of bed. It can sometimes be helpful to obtain a diagnosis for depression, as well as becoming familiar with common symptoms. With a diagnosis, you might be eligible for medication to help you stabilise and feel more ready to enter counselling. With your Mangrove House therapist, you can explore these feelings and add some strategies to what you already know in how to manage and cope. There are many sites out there with information and resources on living with depression, such as Beyond BlueBlack Dog Institute, and Lifeline.

Understand anxiety’s function and develop strategies that work for you to not only cope, but live your best life when anxiety is causing you to lose touch with what is important.

Anxiety is sadly an all-too-common experience for many of us. From social anxiety to generalised anxiety, people of all ages and backgrounds can be prone to these experiences. Understanding signs and symptoms is one step towards managing your anxiety differently. Talk therapy can also help. Through counselling with your anxiety therapist at Mangrove House, we look at the factors that underpin these feelings of anxiety. Working collaboratively, we explore the parts of you holding anxiety and gently unburden these parts, so you feel more confident about your place in your world.
