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.
