Key areas of psychological services we offer are:


Are feeling overwhelmed by your emotions and unable to cope with everyday situations? Anxiety can present as a constant feeling of worry, helplessness, or restlessness. Some people may experience excessive tiredness. Others may have trouble starting or completing tasks. If you are struggling with these kinds of feelings on a daily basis, it may be time to get some assistance in managing your anxiety.

At Warren Claughton & Associates Essendon we offer personalised consultations where we assess your triggers and teach strategies to manage your symptoms. We strive to empower you to take control of the thoughts and feelings that are unhelpful.


Depression is a complex condition that, although many people experience, can make a person feel very misunderstood and isolated. It can wrap around other issues such as anxiety and stress. At Warren Claughton & Associates, we bring together our warm, nurturing environment and our clinical expertise to break that feeling. Our psychological interventions focus on treating both the physical, emotional, and cognitive aspects of depression so that you can experience contentment in your life again.

With our integrated evidence-based approaches, we will assist you to understand your symptoms and develop strategies to better manage them. We empower you to approach life with more confidence, energy, motivation, and resilience. With our support you CAN make positive changes for sustained happiness.


Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that that affects many children and adults. Although nowadays people have heard of ADHD, it is often not well understood. Symptoms can vary greatly, with 3 main diagnoses of ADHD. These include inattention (not being able to keep focus), hyperactivity (excess movement that is not fitting to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur in the moment without thought). ADHD is known to impact many aspects of an individual’s life and is considered to be a chronic and sometimes debilitating disorder. A person may be impacted in their academic and professional achievements or their interpersonal relationships. ADHD can lead to poor self-esteem and social function, particularly in children when not appropriately treated.

ADHD presentation and assessment in adults differs from children. Adults with ADHD may demonstrate poor confidence and self-worth. After experiencing high levels of criticism over many years, an adult with ADHD may demonstrate heightened sensitivity towards criticism, or be very self-critical.

The professional services of Warren Claughton & Associates Essendon can help you or your child to better understand their strengths and challenges. With evidenced-based approaches, we can provide strategies to navigate any difficulties you may be experiencing.
