Depression Counselling

From time to time we can all feel sad, or upset as a reaction to stressful life events and experiences. However, sometimes people can experience these feelings for no reason at all. If these feelings persist, they can be signs of depression. Common symptoms of depression include:

  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions

  • Feeling restless, irritable and agitated

  • Avoiding other people

  • Disturbance in sleep and/or appetite

  • Feeling hopeless, useless, or inadequate

  • Physical symptoms: pain, headaches, lack of energy or libido

  • Low mood, tearfulness

  • Thoughts of suicide

 

Depression is primarily a difficulty in managing one’s mood and emotions. Being too self-critical, feeling  worthless or lonely, and holding on to unresolved feelings, can make us feel low and lose hope. Depression counselling is a form of treatment that can help people get in touch with their underlying emotions, make sense of them, and develop new ways of looking at themselves and the world.

When someone is in the midst of their depression, there often seems no way out of their suffering. A depressed person may feel isolated and lonely, and feel as though no one understands what they are going through.

 

A depression counsellor can help to resolve these feelings by helping you understand why and how the depression has come about in the first place, as well as learning ways to manage their mood.

Depression counselling can help to:

  • Increase self-awareness and mood managment by identifying specific symptoms, ​​and the events that trigger them

 

  • Identifying destructive thought patterns, and exploring new, more positive ways of thinking ​​

 

  • Developing relationship with others as a support system to enhance positive feelings of connectedness and self-confidence​​
     

  • Take some time out to reflect on what is important in your life, and reconnect with sources of contentment and joy.
