Stress, Anxiety & Mood Disorders

Do you long to enjoy a fulfilling life but are stalled by overwhelming feelings of stress, anxiety or low mood?

It’s not uncommon for people to suffer anxiety or feel stressed from the pressures of modern living. Longer hours, never ending to do lists, less sleep and poor nutrition combined with financial and family pressures: its no wonder we’re stressed!

Stress is a normal response for the body. In fact, acute stress can actually have some benefits by becoming a motivator to get things done! It’s when stress begins to impact on your quality of life, that changes need to be made.

Chronic stress can impact the body in a number of ways:

  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Lack of motivation & energy
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling teary
  • Increased aggression and irritability
  • Compromised immune function
  • Poor memory or foggy brain

For many, disturbances in their neurobiology mean they’re unable to live a fulfilling life due to feelings of anxiety and depression. Across Australia and New Zealand, approximately 20% of adults will experience mental illness at some stage in their lives.
