Depression Treatment on the Gold Coast

Did you know that one in 20 Australians are affected by depression each year!

Perhaps a doctor has told you that ‘you have depression’, maybe even prescribed you some medication and sent you off for some therapy? But not much has changed – you still feel low, unmotivated, lethargic and unhappy.

Well I know how you feel, because I battled with depression for many years when I was in my teens and early 20’s and I felt desperate. Finally, I was lucky enough to find some great help, after many failed attempts and almost ready to give up.

This inspired me to work in the field to help others who experience similar issues. Having now spent many years studying psychology and numerous other modalities, and working in the field for over 30 years, I have the understanding, the experience and the passion to help you!

We have a well-established and effective program that has literally helped hundreds of people with depression, and without the reliance on medication.

Understanding Depression

A fundamental aspect for improving the quality of your life and achieving the outcomes of this program, needs to begin with how view depression:

Depression occurs naturally when you’ve lost touch with what makes you feel fulfilled.
Feeling down is a natural human emotion, but it is how we cope with these feelings when we feel them, is what counts. The medical system is quick to label the problem as an illness – ‘you have depression’ and then often medicates the symptoms, whilst not addressing the causes. Too often this leads people to feel totally disempowered, and then they fall deeper and deeper into depression, and get stuck in the negative cycle. Then they become fearful in stopping the medication, because they know nothing has changed in their life, so why would they feel any different…sound familiar?
Many conventional therapists see clients for months and even years talking about their problems. From our experience, the longer you talk about the problems, the longer you stay in them! We have proven over and over again, that you do not need to analyse and dissect your problems to the ‘nth’ degree to make changes and move forward! It’s your perceptions and interpretations of the problems which are the real issue. And the patterns that you have developed to cope with your problems!
So to treat depression without relying on medication, we need to address the causes, and to help you to understand why you really feel stuck, and to get you back in touch with what really matters. We will also be looking closely at your current thinking patterns, choices, decisions and behaviours. With our solutions-focused program, we will show you cutting-edge psychological tools to turn the depression around and break the negative cycle.
Depression Treatment Gold Coast - let some light in!

Gold Coast Depression Programs

We will work together to fully understand your underlying cirumstances, limiting beliefs, and negative psychological patterns that are keeping you in a depressive cycle.
We will first work with your conscious mind to increase your awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and behavioural patterns at a conscious level. We will transform your current perceptions and disempowering beliefs that are not serving you.
Then we will work directly with your unconscious mind, using transformational techniques like PSYCH-K™, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Hypnotherapy. Your unconscious mind is responsible for how you feel and how you behave, so it is vital to work with this part of your mind to ensure long-lasting changes occur!
