David Fox is a Sydney-based author, speaker and registered psychologist with a masters degree in psychology. He believes that overcoming issues like anxiety and depression are best tackled on multiple fronts such as exercise, supplements, working with your thoughts and beliefs, watching your diet and talking to someone who can provide empathy and support while you figure things out. His goal is to teach people individually and within organisations how to help themselves thrive. In addition, David supports patients who would like to eventually reduce or potentially stop taking anti-depressant medication if they are finding major negative side effects from remaining on the medications and looking for alternative routes to a better quality of life. This is not for everyone, and yes some people may need to remain on some amount of medication – especially those with bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia. However, for those whose issues began as anxiety and/or depression, there may certainly be another way to healing other than medication.
David has worked in the field of human resources in South Africa, the United Kingdom and Sydney, Australia. In addition, has has spent over 5 years working as an employee assistance counsellor and psychologist and has run a number of seminars and training events around mental health in the workplace for over 8 years. David understands the difficulties that can sometimes occur when employees are struggling with mental well being issues. He is a strong advocate for providing preventative solutions to the workforce to assist them in learning the tools of resiliency and how to handle and remove stress, anxiety and depression from their lives. And there is no doubt that more and more research shows there is a very real dollar return to organisations who actively support the mental and physical well being of their people.
David is the author of the book Change your Life! Hope and Healing for Anxiety and Depression.
