The Home of Active Self Help
for Depression and Anxiety
Welcome to DrPurves.com the home of Active Self Help for depression and anxiety, and stress.
If you’re seeking anxiety and depression treatment or generally struggling with mental health problems it’s my hope that this website will provide the help you need.
Do you feel you have too much to do and not enough time to do it? Do you feel overwhelmed by life yet unable to do enough to keep the fear of failing at bay?
Intolerable stress is corrosive and UNNECESSARY. True, it is not possible to live a life without any stress. That is not the point! It is however possible to manage, overcome and defeat the intolerable stress that destroys your wellbeing.
If you’re suffering with depression you’ll already know that depression is a recurring and pernicious problem that devastates lives.
It can leave you feeling tired and drained, sad, numb, detached, generally low and hopeless.
Are you struggling with anxiety? Acute anxiety disorders and general anxiety problems are very common but that doesn’t make them any less debilitating.
If you have an anxiety problem you can feel jumpy and irritable, find it hard to concentrate, you can be totally consumed with feelings of dread. And often that’s not where it ends.
Anxiety can have physical symptoms. Have you ever felt like you couldn’t breathe, your heart was pounding, you were dizzy, had diarrhea tremors or the twitches? Perhaps you couldn’t stop sweating.
Anxiety disorders capture a considerable range of different presentations but the underlying issues remain feelings of fear, worry and threat.
Fear spoils many of life‘s joys. It can be like a closing trap getting ever tighter, strangling. But it does not have to be this way.
I want you to know that it is truly possible to put an end to worry, stress, low mood and to recover from depression and anxiety. You just have to know how… and learning how does not have to mean potentially costly help from a therapist.
