Key areas of psychological services we offer are:
Do you often feel overwhelmed by your emotions and find it difficult to cope with everyday situations? If you are experiencing persistent feelings of worry, helplessness, or restlessness, you may be dealing with anxiety. For some, this may manifest as extreme tiredness, while others may struggle to initiate or complete tasks. If you find yourself struggling with these kinds of symptoms, seeking help to manage your anxiety may be beneficial.
At Warren Claughton & Associates Ascot Vale, we offer personalized consultations where we assess your triggers and teach strategies to manage your anxiety symptoms. Our approach is designed to empower you to take control of your thoughts and feelings and to develop more helpful coping mechanisms.
Despite being common, depression can be a challenging illness that frequently makes people feel alone and misunderstood. It might coexist with other problems including anxiety and stress, making management difficult. At Warren Claughton & Associates, we work hard to establish a kind and encouraging environment where we can work together to directly address these emotions.
Our psychological interventions will address the cognitive, emotional, and physical components of depression. We work with you to identify your symptoms and create efficient symptom management plans using evidence-based methods. We want to give you the tools you need to face life with more vigour, enthusiasm, drive, and resilience. With our assistance, you can make adjustments that result in lasting happiness.
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivty Disorder (ADHD) is an ailment that affects both children and adults. Although relatively common, it is still frequently misunderstood. The three primary categories of diagnosis for ADHD are impulsivity (doing rapidly without thinking), hyperactivity (excessive movement not suited for the situation), and inattention (difficulty sustaining focus).
Numerous facets of a person’s life can be impacted by this chronic and occasionally debilitating disorder, including their academic and professional accomplishments, as well as their interpersonal relationships. Children with ADHD may have poor social skills which can lead to low self-esteem if not appropriately addressed. It’s significant to highlight that adult ADHD presentation and assessment differ from that of ADHD in children. Due to years of criticism, adults with ADHD may have reduced self-esteem and confidence. They may also be very sensitive to criticism.
At Warren Claughton & Associates in Ascot Vale, we offer professional services to help you or your child better understand your strengths and challenges related to ADHD. Our evidence-based approaches provide strategies to help navigate any difficulties you may be facing.
