Hi, and welcome to my depressioNet page. My name is Tim Sharp and I am the director of Dr. Timothy J Sharp & Associates – an established independent practice of highly qualified and trustworthy clinical psychologists.
Over the years I have invited a number of dedicated psychologists (male and female) to join my practice, which operates in several locations around Sydney. Our goal is to provide the best treatments for people with depression and anxiety.
My team of psychologists all have different backgrounds, and different areas of specialisation, but we all share a strong commitment to helping people like you. We are also very committed to providing cognitive therapy which the research strongly indicates is the most effective treatment for these types of problems.
I am an active supporter of depressioNet and I hope you are finding the site informative. But even more importantly, if you are looking for help to overcome depression or anxiety, rather than just information, then I encourage you to consider our cognitive therapy programs. These will help you feel considerably better.
You might also find it interesting to visit my website at www.makingchanges.com.au. This site has information about depresion and anxiety, resources to help you make positive changes, and a page where you can register for our free weekly e-tips.
Visitor Feedback - Claire's Comments
"When I finally found Dr. Sharp through depressioNet, I can honestly say I smiled a genuine smile for the first time in what could well have been years. The relief was palpable.
My first session with Tim involved lots of tears…It wasn't easy. I began one of the cognitive therapy programs and attended weekly sessions. Tim gave me homework to complete and skills to practice.
The change in me was immense and almost immediate. Finally there was someone who thought my fears were genuine and would listen to what I thought were my silly little ideas. After 4 weeks my husband pronounced it the best money we had ever spent.
Over the course of 7 weeks I learned how to change my thinking. I learned how to stop the self-loathing and the catastrophising. As I began to feel better about myself, and as my confidence grew, I also found my need to drink diminished.
Now, nearly 3 months after my last session with Tim I realise that I was really quite depressed but that I am now well on the road to recovery. It hasn't all been sunshine and flowers but I'm happy to say I now feel better about myself than ever before. I can strongly recommend Tim's practice and especially his cognitive therapy program."
