Depression

It's been amazing to see so many patients recover from depression during my work as a psychotherapist.

“Recovery begins with the initiation of treatment and commitment to yourself to improve the quality of your life.”

Depression is a mood disorder which can vary in intensity and longevity depending on the particular type of depression and diagnosis. Most common symptoms for depression include sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, powerlessness, low mood and mood changes, low self worth, crying, insomnia, lack of motivation and confidence, appetite changes and isolation from people which impairs your daily level of functioning. Clinical depression affects how your feel, think and behave and and may impact your immune system and overall physical health.

Detoxing your brain is an imperative aspect of treatment to help eliminate the negative emotions and cognition which have been proven by clinical studies and research to pour toxins into your body twenty fours a day causing 85 to 95 percent of all mental and physical illness (Dr. Caroline Leaf; "Who Switched on My Brain"). For additional information you can contact Dr. Leaf at www.drleaf.com. Reprogramming your brain with positive thoughts about your self, others and your future helps to improve your overall level of functioning on a daily basis.

"For I know the plans I have for you;" says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

Anxiety

Do you have anxiety? Let's take a self scaling mini test to help you evaluate your anxiety. Ask yourself this question: "On a scale of 0 to 10, what is the level of my anxiety (10 being the most intense and 0 being a state of calmness)? If your scaling number is between 4 and 10 with a daily frequency, that may indicate that you have an anxiety disorder. It is important to note that as part of normal life experience, most people have episodes of occasional anxiety. However, an anxiety disorder is measured with a higher level of intensity and frequency of anxiousness.

Some of the symptoms of an anxious mindset include: worrying, difficulty relaxing, feeling on edge, fatigue, insomnia, fearfulness, shakiness and twitching, profuse sweating, heart palpitations, dizziness, headache, stomach and muscle aches, anticipation of the worse scenario in life events and avoiding situations that might trigger anxiousness. These symptoms are part of a number of anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder, phobias, social and separation anxiety and panic attacks which are all treatable with psychotherapy and selective medication. At Christian Counseling we offer a natural protocol of medication to help alleviate your symptoms lowering the intensity of your anxiousness while going through therapy.

Experiencing healing from painful negative thoughts, emotions, core beliefs (root lies) and trauma(s) can result in a long lasting recovery from anxiety disorders. Initiate your treatment journey today learning how to maintain a calmer mindset, manage life stressors more effectively and develop coping strategies to efficioiusly manage your emotions.

Call Christian Counseling today to begin your healing journey so that you can enjoy your life!

"EMDR has been an effective treatment protocol for healing deeply rooted fears, negative core beliefs and painful emotions and/or trauma(s) that may be the cause of your anxiousness."
