One of the most debilitating, yet common, mental conditions that exist today is depression. It’s more than just feeling sad or mourning the loss of a loved one, it’s a chronic psychological mental condition that persists in the background and interferes with your life. Some symptoms may include insomnia, lack of hunger, and apathy.
Proper treatment by a reliable professional can help turn things around for a patient. Forming a relationship with a patient – one of trust and understanding can be therapeutic. This is followed by a joint effort in understanding the core reason behind the depression and offering possible solutions for it. Barbara Browne is a specialist you can trust if you or someone you know is suffering from depression. You will learn and discover new ways to handle your emotions and how to react to certain situations.

Anxiety, depression and stress are emotional responses that can occur due to a wide variety of personal conflicts or situations which everyone experiences and handles differently.
The most important thing to remember is that your health is highly dependent on your psyche; the more depressed you are, the greater the chances of disease. A reduction in your stress levels will ensure that your mood is better, along with a boost in immunity and longevity. Extreme worry and stress levels have the potential to make you ill, from a simple common cold to severe cardiac conditions. When it comes to managing your condition, including depression and anxiety or coping with grief and loss, Barbara uses an approach to couple and family counselling that is a brief, emotionally focused therapy model.
The point of therapeutic services is to help patients cope with psychological blocks or intense trauma. With Barbara’s assistance and dedication, any patient can overcome depression and live a normal life.

“I have seen several therapists and have struggled with issues of trust, shame and an inability to connect with my feelings. With the caring support of Barbara, I am finally feeling safe enough to do the work I need to. She is forthright, skilled, accepting, respectful and very tolerant around my anxieties. I feel very encouraged by her, and recommend her whole-heartedly. I made you my choice from a number of therapists I spoke to, because of your patience!”—A.R.E.
