Complex Mood Disorders

Oftentimes, how we think, feel and behave is not adequately described by depression or anxiety alone. In these instances, the complexities of personality and the dynamic interplay of co-occuring mood disturbances (including depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizoaffective disorder, or psychotic phenomena) are responsible. If you have a history of trauma, the occurrence of a complex mood disorder is more likely. Complex mood is characterised by aspects of many psychological and psychiatric conditions, including personality, which can often be hard to treat alone.

Traditional approaches to therapy can sometimes prove unhelpful, particularly in the long run. Complex mood considerations take into account you, as a whole system, and attempt to provide you with a comprehensive treatment that takes into account all aspects of your character and experience.

If you have found therapy unhelpful before, or that your mood feels more interchanging and different, or that depression or anxiety simply don’t describe all of how you feel, it may be time to speak with us. We provide an expert specialist assessment that aims to understand the dynamics of how you feel. Rather than simply categorising your concerns as depression or anxiety or ‘other’, we work with you to achieve your goals and make sure that you get the most out of psychotherapy.
