Anger Control: We experience many emotions during the day. When we are faced with negative situations, we give a number of reactions. Anger is one of these emotions. Anger is a set of intellectual, emotional and behavioural reactions to any event, situation. Anger control is the appropriate expression of this normal emotion. When anger is expressed appropriately, it has positive outcomes for the person. However, if anger control cannot be achieved, the person has negative returns both mentally and physically.
Anxiety Disorders: From time to time, there are periods when we experience more intense stress and anxiety. A certain level of anxiety is necessary for life, but when this anxiety starts to be experienced continuously and more intensely, if it goes out of the person's control and disrupts daily functionality, it is considered as a problem. There are anxiety disorders with different characteristics.
Panic Disorder: It is a disorder that starts suddenly, puts the person in intense distress and creates bouts of fear of experiencing this distress again. The panic attack, which is usually expected to recur, causes distress and the person becomes unable to continue his/her daily life.
Phobias: Avoidance mediated by fear, which is not proportional to the danger related to an object or situation and is defined as meaningless by the person experiencing it.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder: The person is in constant anxiety. Chronic and uncontrollable anxiety about everything is the main characteristic of this disorder.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: It is an anxiety disorder in which the mind is filled with persistent and uncontrollable thoughts and the person feels compelled to perform behaviours that cause a lot of distress to the person over and over again.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: It reflects extreme reactions such as increased anxiety in the face of a great stress, avoidance of trauma-related stimuli and decreased emotional reactions.
Eating Disorders: It is important to recognise problems related to eating and body image before they become disorders and to receive both dietary and psychological support for this. People who are very afraid of gaining weight, distorted body perception and distorted perception of body shapes or people who vomit to prevent weight gain after consuming large amounts of food should be treated.
Adolescence Period Problems: Adolescence is a developmental phase and in this phase, which is the transition phase from childhood to adulthood, it changes rapidly both physically and spiritually. The individual enters a process of adaptation during this period. As in every developmental stage, adaptation to this stage may bring some crises. Overcoming these crises in a healthy way enables the individual to enter adulthood more robustly.
Exam Anxiety: Exam anxiety is an intense anxiety that prevents the person from using the knowledge learnt in the exam, thus causing a decrease in success. When the anxieties of the individual are studied, the success rate in the exam will increase as well as being a healthier adult.
Psychological Support in Cancer: Cancer patients and their relatives struggle with various psychological problems. Both the patient and the patient's relatives need psychological and social support. Receiving psychological support throughout the treatment, starting from the first learning of the disease, increases the patient's coping skills, provides emotional expression, makes it easier to cope with anxiety and depression, and increases the psychological well-being and quality of life.
