Understanding and Overcoming
Mood Disorders with Evolving Minds

Mood disorders can deeply affect our lives, making it challenging to maintain relationships or perform well at work. Each person's experience with mood disorders is unique, although common effects include withdrawing from social interactions and hiding true feelings from those we care about.

At Evolving Minds, we offer professional psychological treatment for mood disorders. Our team of experienced clinicians are dedicated to helping children, adolescents, and adults identify and manage a variety of mood disorders such as:

Depressive Disorder

 

Characterised by prolonged periods of extreme sadness and low moods, depressive disorder can significantly impact daily life. Symptoms include feelings of hopelessness, loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, and difficulty concentrating. Our treatments focus on helping you develop coping strategies, improve mood, and restore a sense of well-being.

 

Bipolar Disorder

 

Also known as manic depression, bipolar disorder involves alternating episodes of depression and mania, affecting mood, energy levels, and behaviour. During depressive episodes, individuals may experience intense sadness and lack of energy. Manic episodes can involve heightened energy, euphoria, and impulsive behaviors. Our treatment approach helps manage these mood swings, promoting stability and emotional balance.

 

Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia)

 

This chronic form of depression involves long-term low moods and sadness. Unlike major depressive disorder, dysthymia's symptoms are less severe but more persistent, lasting for years. Individuals may experience feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and a sense of hopelessness. Our treatment plans focus on long-term strategies to manage symptoms and enhance overall quality of life.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)


This type of depression occurs at certain times of the year, typically in the winter months when daylight is limited. Symptoms include low energy, overeating, and social withdrawal. We offer a range of treatment options, to help manage and overcome SAD.
