Common presentations

ANXIETY

Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental health condition, affecting 1 in 4 at some point across the  lifecycle. 

 

You may be experiencing stress or difficulty adjusting to a change in your life. Or you may have a diagnosed condition such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety, Specific Phobias, and Panic Disorder. Anxiety is also present in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

Effective treatments are available and will depend on the nature of the anxiety symptoms experienced. Taking control back so that anxiety does not control you, is an essential step in managing anxiety and the psychologists at Lilley Place are trained to successfully treat all forms of anxiety.

MOOD difficulties

A mood disorder is a real condition. It is not something you will easily “get over” on your own. Mood disorders are common in children, adolescents and adults. Symptoms such as sadness, fluctuating mood, poor motivation, decrease in productivity, and low self-esteem may all reflect an underlying mood disorder.

 

Unlike the normal bad mood that we all feel occasionally, a mood disorder involves thoughts and feelings that are intense, difficult to manage, and persistent. Mood disorders can be treated with evidence-based treatments, especially with early recognition of the problem. Treatment can help manage the episode, reduce the severity of symptoms, and help to prevent future episodes. Treatment can also improve your quality of life and relationships.

RELATIONSHIPS

Arguments and disagreements occur within all close relationships, and are a normal part of dealing with differences in ideas, beliefs, and perspectives1    .

 

However, chronic relationship conflict and stress is a serious issue. It has been linked to poorer mental and physical health1     and can affect other areas of life such as relationships with family and friends, and work colleagues2   . Children also suffer when exposed to high levels of conflict at home, and are at greater risk for anxiety, depression, behavioural problems, and poorer health1   .

 

At Lilley Place we frequently work with families, couples and parents to improve relationships. We also offer treatment for bullying and social isolation. Learning effective and respectful ways to communicate differences is an important step in building a healthy, fulfilling relationship, and which can benefit our overall well-being and those around us.3   

Other concerns we can assist with

Sleep Problems

Sleep difficulties involve problems with the quality, timing and amount of sleep, which cause problems with functioning and distress during the day. Sleep difficulties are linked with both physical and emotional problems. Sleep problems can contribute to or worsen mental health conditions and be a symptom of other mental health conditions. Insomnia is the most common type of sleep disorder.

Developmental Psychology

This is a focus on how an individual grows across the lifespan. It does not just refer to physical growth. Some of the issues that developmental psychologists help with include:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Delayed developmental milestones
  • Emotional development and regulation
  • Attention, concentration and hyperactivity
  • Communication and social interaction
  • Cognitive development during childhood and throughout life

Anger Management

Understanding, regulating and managing intense negative emotions are important life skills to develop, regardless of age.

Learning

  • School-based issues
  • Learning difficulties
  • Psychometric assessments including educational assessments
  • Applications for curriculum access arrangements and reasonable adjustments (special consideration).

Time Management And Organisational Skills

Time management involves juggling time between work/school, home, social life and hobbies. Poor time management can be related to procrastination, attention problems, or difficulties with self-control. You can learn organisational strategies to boost efficiency and productivity.

Life Transition/Role Change/Goal Setting

Clarifying life goals is important for change, motivation and helps to guide the direction for therapy. Are there areas of your life you would like to feel more in control of?
