anxiety

Anxiety

We live in an increasingly busy world where increased anxiety has become a feature of life. Anxiety is the most common condition affecting people’s mental wellness. Evan has vast experience in helping people cope with anxiety. We can discuss the nature of your anxiety and its triggers and develop strategies specific to your situation moving you towards a better level of functionality.

depression

Depression

Depression is a mood disorder that can help affect people’s daily life. Evan can work with you to understand the nature of your depression and the effect it has on your daily functioning in your family and work life. We can develop strategies that will be most successful for you responding to the symptoms of your depression based on the best research of neurological science.

coping with stressful life events

Coping with Stressful Life Events

Life throws curve balls at us all the time. Losing a relationship, loss of a job, and the grief after a loved one has passed. Evan can listen if that is all that is required. We can also formulate strategies of how to respond to the curve balls of life so they are the least worse they need to be and you can move towards a new normal.

personality vulnerabilities

Personality Vulnerabilities

Working with people with symptoms of ‘personality disorder’ is one of the most difficult undertakings within the treatment of mental illness. Making sustained changes takes time but is achievable. Evan has the knowledge and experience in working with people seeking long term change. We can work with you when others seem to have given up. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is what Evan specializes in and the strategy best supported by research in the recovery from a diagnosis of a personality disorder.

mood disorders

Mood Disorders

At Epic Psychotherapy we can work to understand the nature of your mood disorder and develop strategies to respond to the symptoms of a mood disorder. Mood disorders can require some communication with your GP should a psychopharmacological intervention be helpful. We can help you monitor the effects of any medications prescribed. Epic Psychotherapy understands the Serotonergic pathways of Mood Disorders and can help you develop nonpharmacological strategies in managing the symptoms of your mood disorder which can be as effective in the management of the symptoms as pharmacological interventions.

anger management

Anger Management

We have evolved to become angry as a response to stress. Accepting anger as a natural and predictable human emotion is a core of managing anger in ways that are not destructive, but can be productive. Epic Psychotherapy aims to help you to develop strategies to avoid expressing anger in violent, abusive, or other negative ways. We understand the evolutionary and neurological aspects of anger, and work towards its appropriate expression in assertive and constructive manners that minimizes its negative effects that might be causing damage to yourself and love ones. We do not aim to stop you feeling anger because angry is inevitable, but to express anger in ways that acknowledges your feelings, whilst not harming others.

  • Recovery from Substance Use: Once you have identified your substance use if causing difficulties in your life and are seeking help with recovery, we can help. The road to recovery can be long and lonely, but Evan can walk alongside you. There are a number of different strategies that may work and we can work out which is the best for you. Often with substance use, there is an underlying trauma. We can do the work to undercover that trauma and work on the best response for you.
  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD): Long term talking therapy has been found the most effective treatment for people with a diagnosis of BPD. BPD is also the most stigmatised diagnosis in both the media and the psychiatric field and as a result, is often underdiagnosed. Epic Psychotherapy welcomes people with symptoms of BPD. Evan is experienced in working with people with BPD on their journey to recovery. Evan understands that recovery from BPD takes a long term commitment and will work alongside people whilst they undertake this journey. Evan is aware that this journey is usually measured in months and years, rather than days and weeks. He has experience with applying the two forms of therapy with the best evidence to support recovery from BPD; Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Mentalization Based Therapy. He does not promise ‘quick fixes’, but aims for recovery in which change is sustained through a lifetime.
