What is Depression?

Sadness is a normal human emotion. However, if it is happening too often, is hard to manage and is quite severe, we might describe the person as 'having' depression.

In depression, in addition to persistent low mood, you may also experience irritability and crying, loss of interest, tiredness, trouble sleeping, loss of confidence, thoughts of guilt and self-criticism and also, at times, questioning whether or not life is worth living.

Your depression may have been triggered by a number of factors, such as a bereavement, relationship breakdown, or other stress.  Sometimes the cause is not clear.

Although things may seem really tough at the moment, the good news is that most people eventually rise above their depression and counselling can greatly help in this process.

When should you seek Depression Counselling?

You should consider seeking depression counselling when the problem persists and is interfering with your normal functioning, relationships and daily activities.

Sometimes when a person is experiencing a particularly severe episode of depression, they may have thoughts of hurting themselves or ending their life.  If you are having such thoughts, please contact your GP as soon as possible. 

Please remember that depression is very treatable and with a little help, people do recover and are later very glad that they did not act on suicidal thoughts. 

How might Depression Counselling help?

Depression counselling, such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), can help you understand what is depressing you and support you in making changes and adjustments to your life and how you view it. It will also help you find the steps you need to take on the difficult path out of depression and provide you with effective tools to help you on the way. What you decide to do is always your choice.

Although some of the signs of depression are often similar, everyone's experience of depression is very different as we are all very different people with very different circumstances and life events. Therefore, it is important that therapy is fashioned to meet your specific needs.

Sometimes counselling is used in conjunction with medication prescribed by your GP.
