MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS
WE CAN HELP
Our unique model is a pioneering treatment for helping people with mental health disorders.
Most people with long-standing interpersonal difficulties have experienced earlier trauma and this in turn effects a persons biochemistry which then contributes to and maintains ongoing issues. At RósGlas, we address and treat both underlying trauma and biochemical imbalances.
In addition, we provide each of our clients with a live-in psychologist and a small team of mental health, psychiatric and psychological specialists.
The close therapeutic relationship that is formed during therapy is often a key to healing and overcoming issues. We also provide a range of evidence-based therapies to help our clients develop tools and strategies to manage their emotions, identify their triggers and improve their relationships both with themselves and others.
Rosglas Recovery have successfully treated many clients who suffered from personality disorders, burnout, depression and other psychological problems.
ANXIETY IS PROBLEMATIC WHEN IT IS CONSTANT OR OVERWHELMING.
It’s normal to feel some amount of anxiety under times of difficulty or stress. Some amount of anxiety serves as a helpful function. It is our bodies way of responding to danger and triggers a ‘fight or flight’ response that helps keep us safe and alive.
Anxiety is problematic when it is constant or overwhelming, when you are troubled by fears or your daily life is affected by feelings of worry, dread or apprehension. If your anxiety is stopping you from doing things, going places, interfering with your relationships, preventing you from enjoying life or you are using substances or other distractions to help manage your anxiety then it’s time to seek professional help.
BURNOUT IS A CHRONIC STATE OF EMOTIONAL, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL EXHAUSTION CAUSED BY EXCESSIVE AND PROLONGED STRESS.
Stress & burnout is a chronic state of emotional, mental and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It’s increasingly common amongst business executives and those juggling a variety of modern demands. Ongoing stress and burnout leaves you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and feeling unable to manage.
There are a number of stages of burnout usually beginning with traits of hard work, determination and motivation with increasing demands and pressure to perform. Early signs of stress and burnout include beginning to neglect self-care and reducing time spent with friends and family, breaks, hobbies or enjoyable recreational interests. Difficulty sleeping or changes in eating habits are common.

CODEPENDENCY IS ESSENTIALLY CHARACTERISED BY DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS – WITH ONESELF AND OTHER PEOPLE.
This is often seen in families with addiction issues or mental health and is regarded a form of delayed stress syndrome.
Usually people with issues of codependency have an unstable sense of identity and end up gaining much of their self esteem from being needed by, excessively helping other people or taking on other peoples responsibilities. Codependent behaviours relate to a range of relationship difficulties, self esteem and self worth issues, depression and anxiety. Underlying issues of codependency usually includes earlier dysfunctional family relations or trauma in early childhood, neglect or abuse.
DEPRESSION IS A SENSE OF SADNESS AND HOPELESSNESS THAT OCCURS SEEMINGLY REGARDLESS OF CIRCUMSTANCE.
Its normal to feel sad and down from time to time, particularly after related situations such as a relationship breakdown or bereavement – but depression is a sense of sadness and hopelessness that occurs seemingly regardless of circumstance.
Symptoms of depression include:
- Low mood, lasting for several weeks
- Loss of interest in social interactions, hobbies or interests
- Changes in sleep patterns – difficulty sleeping or needing to sleep too much
- Changes in appetite – overeating or loss of appetite
- Loss of libido
- Difficulty making decisions
- Feeling unable to cope
- Sense of hopelessness and helplessness
- Suicidal thoughts and feelings
TRAUMA & PTSD
PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMA CAN HAVE A LONG-LASTING AND DEBILITATING IMPACT ON A PERSONS QUALITY OF LIFE, DAILY FUNCTIONING AND RELATIONSHIPS, UNTIL PROFESSIONAL HELP IS RECEIVED.
Trauma can be experienced from any kind of negative experience. Most often, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occur as a result of an event or series of events that threaten our usual sense of safety, security and survival.
Trauma is experienced in the brain and body when an overwhelming amount of stress occurs. The source and cause of stress can come from traumatic events such as witnessing or being involved in war, terrorist attacks, abuse, violence, accidents, personal attacks and sexual abuse. Trauma also occurs from many other experiences that people may not necessarily understand or regard as ‘traumatic’. This includes experiences or incidences of embarrassment, harassment, bullying, discrimination, earlier experiences of abuse or neglect and divorce or separation. Longer term and earlier experiences of trauma can also lead to PTSD or delayed stress syndrome.
NARCISSISM AND NARCISSISTIC ABUSE
NARCISSISM IS CHARACTERISED BY A DISTINCT SENSE OF GRANDIOSITY, ENTITLEMENT, FANTASIES ABOUT ACHIEVEMENTS OR CAPABILITIES AND A STRONG NEED FOR ADMIRATION.
Traditionally, the narcissist (usually male) is seen as confident, charismatic and charming. He can be sweet, caring and generous in order to ultimately attract and manipulate others. A deeply ingrained insecurity, low self-esteem and fear of abandonment often lies at the core of a narcissist, underneath the displays of great intelligence, leadership and humour.
Many narcissists are addicts of some form or another. They attract people who are caring, generous and kind. Often narcissistic counter-dependent / co-dependent relationships exist with the alcoholic or addict, although these dangerous traits can sometimes be hard to identify. The narcissist is usually highly successful in business and has an entertaining, captivating and magnetic personality, however, a more covert type of narcissism is more often identified in women.
