  • Excessive worry
  • Worthlessness
  • Hopelessness
  • Tearfulness

The good news is that you can overcome depression with the right treatment.

The sooner you reach out for help and start treatment, the faster you’ll recover.

How I can help

Treatment for Depression

Depression doesn’t need to have the last word.

As a clinical psychologist with 13+ years’ experience, I’ve had the privilege of walking alongside people who suffer from depression to help them get their lives back on track. I’ve received specific training in diagnosing and treating mental health disorders.

Professional treatment includes:

  • Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Mindfulness Training

These therapies are effective treatments for depression based on extensive scientific research and have helped countless people overcome major depression. 

Asking for help is never easy but it’s the first step on the road to recovery.
