Mood Disorders

Mood Disorders

In addition to depression, Brideswell Counselling and Psychotherapy also offer counselling and treatment for a range of other mood disorders. I provide a non-judgemental consultation where we will work to identify your symptoms and subsequently work towards a treatment plan that is suited to you. I place great importance on understanding the often diverse needs of each individual we see and always strive to provide a tailored, long-term solution.

Bi-Polar Disorder

Bi-polar disorder, also referred to as manic depression, is characterised by extreme highs and lows of a person’s mood. Moods can change very quickly and the person will have no idea why, leading to feelings of being confused and frustrated. I work on effective coping and prevention strategies to help you overcome your symptoms.

Anger Management

We all experience anger and it is a natural state of the human experience. If you feel your anger is affecting you and those around you negatively, it may be a good idea to consider integrating anger management strategies that will help you express your anger in a healthy way. I work closely with each individual to assist with this 


Grief can appear in many forms. For some people it may mean feeling sad all the time, for others it may cause anger. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. I can help you integrate practises to deal with grief.
