I have been to a few different people over the years. the latest was a clinical Psychiatrist. they are trained more than your normal psychiatrist, and are who you need in Australia, to be assessed for disability. I believe they are only as good, as you let them be. if you are not honest, and prepaired to try some of there suggestions..... then you will be waisting your money. on the other hand, my daughter has been taught life skills by them that have changed her life immeasurably. my personal belief is they are a doctor trained in helping sort out your mind and thought processes. they can be very very beneficial.
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
