Regain control of your life by seeing a depression psychologist on the Gold Coast with Alegna Solutions.
Depression is relatively common amongst Australians of all ages, both men and women. According to the ABS, depression will affect one in every seven people at some point during their lives. Everyone has their blue days, but if you find yourself feeling low for long stretches of time, you may be suffering from depression and need the help of a psychologist. Signs of depression can include one or more of the following:
- Avoiding socialising
- Not leaving the house
- Withdrawing from close family and friends
- Losing motivation at work
- Relying on drugs, alcohol, food or pharmaceuticals
- Not enjoying your usual hobbies and interests
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling overwhelmed and exhausted
- Feeling irritable, frustrated, angry or disappointed
- Feeling worthless or desperate
- Change of appetite and rapid weight gain or weight loss
- Sleep problems
- Headaches and muscle pains
