Mood Disorders

Mood disorders are mental health disorders that may involve emotional disturbances consisting of long periods of excessive sadness (depression), excessive joyousness or elation (mania), or both. Depression and mania represent the two extremes, or poles, of mood disorders. Psychotherapy forms part of team response where patients will typically be under the medical care/supervision of a Psychiatrist/Specialist Medical Practitioner. Nicole has worked alongside psychiatrists, responsible for therapeutic support required to treat mood disorders.
