Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety: While everyone feels anxious from time to time, some people experience these feelings so often and/or so strongly that it can affect their everyday lives. Often people confuse anxiety disorders with stress. Stress is a normal reaction to a situation where a person feels under pressure. For example, it's common for people to feel stressed or uptight when meeting work deadlines, sitting exams or speaking in front of a group of people. However, for some people these feelings are ongoing and happen for no apparent reason.

Depression: Depression is more than just a low mood - it's a serious illness. While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time and often without reason. People with depression find it hard to function every day and may be reluctant to participate in activities they once enjoyed. Depression is one of the most common of all mental health problems. One in five people experience depression at some stage of their lives. 

If  you are feeling any of the above, please come and speak to one of our doctor's - We also have Psychologists available, so please phone our friendly reception staff to organise an appointment soon.
