Depression Counselling can help you address your depression and reverse the effects it is having on your life. It does so by giving you tools and strategies you can implement in daily life. Using these tools can help you see, and then reach, the light at the end of the tunnel.
Sometimes, symptoms of depression can make you feel helpless and alone. You may feel it hopeless to get help for your depression. In these moments it’s important to remember that lots of people have been through similar experiences to you. And many who have recovered have used Depression Counselling to help them return to living normal, fulfilling lives.
When Depression Counselling can help
Feeling low, sad or moody is a normal part of the ups and downs of everyday life. It is common to experience symptoms of depression for a time, especially after a dramatic change in life circumstances or a traumatic event (like the loss of a loved one). However, depression becomes a problem when you feel miserable for no apparent reason and for long periods of time (weeks, months, or even years), leading you to withdraw from life and activities that you usually find enjoyable.
Depression is a very serious illness, and in extreme cases people can feel so miserable and worthless that they try to take their own life. While not all people who suffer from depression feel suicidal, it can affect their life so dramatically that they are no longer able to do basic things like get out of bed in the morning or have a shower. Counselling for depression can be extremely beneficial in regaining a sense of self worth and a healthy approach to life.
