Depression can be a heavyweight on your mind. Therapy can lift your mood and prepare you if it comes back in the future.
We can all feel down in the dumps, but depression is much more than that. It’s stronger and disrupts your mental health, making you feel agitated and hopeless. When you’ve been feeling low, depressed or down for quite a while, then you’re probably experiencing depression symptoms. What can you do about it? Depression therapy may have the answers.
Our therapists, counsellors and psychologists have helped many people affected by depression. We understand that you want to feel ‘normal’ or get back to being your ‘old self’. In therapy, we’ll help you get better at coping with the demands of work, to stay connected in relationships, to be a patient and attentive parent, to have fun when you go out and to find the will to get up and get going.
How we can help
In Depression therapy, we help you by teaching ways to lift your mood. With our help, you’ll:
- Build-up your motivation and energy
- Get into a better routine
- Increase your confidence and desire to see people again
- Cope with the demands of work
- (If needed) Create a plan to deal with thoughts of killing yourself
If you’re feeling suicidal, we want to help you in the best way possible. We don’t rush-in or overreact. If you need to see a Doctor or a Crisis Team, we can arrange that. A lot of the time, people need a space to talk about it. Everyone’s situation is different, and we’ll focus together on what’s going to be most helpful.
Our Therapy for Depression aims to get to the root of the problem. You’ll have the opportunity to explore what’s made you vulnerable to depression. We can use this understanding to look at how you cope, its impact on your mood and to build new strategies that give you greater stability.
How does your childhood affect depression?
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) can leave their mark on you even when you’re older. It can cause anxiety, depressive symptoms and trust issues. You may want to understand more about the impact of these experiences. Our therapists are skilled and experienced in this area and they can offer you the support you’ll need to get past them.
How much does depression affect you?
Depression doesn’t mean your whole life has reached a complete standstill. Many people cope with the day-to-day and still feel disconnected, unfulfilled and lonely. If that fits your experience, then our short online course called 5 Daily Helpers will help you find that get-up-and-go that is missing.
