Depression

“IN THE MIDST OF WINTER, I FINALLY LEARNED THAT THERE WAS IN ME AN INVINCIBLE SUMMER”
Albert Camus

Everyone at some point can find coping with everyday life difficult. Often it is possible for current issues to overwhelm you, either because too many negative things have happened together, or past issues unresolved have been reactivated with the recent crisis. Depression is also about how we have learned to respond to life’s experiences and can involve a particular way of thinking that often view’s the world in a negative and threatening way.

    The symptoms for depression include:

    • a depressed state of mind
    • feeling sad or empty
    • being more tearful that usual
    • a loss of interest or pleasure
    • weight loss
    • difficulties sleeping
    • loss of energy
    • fatigue
    • feelings of worthlessness or excessive amounts of guilt
    • an inability to think/concentrate and having morbid thoughts.

Depression can also affect the relationships that you are in and this can make you feel isolated and very alone.

How can counselling help?

Talking through your thoughts, feelings, physical issues and other difficulties with a counsellor can help you feel less alone. Counselling will offer you time to explore your world and help you to make connections to patterns or thought processes that are not helping you. It allows you to work on regaining control over yourself and your life. Sometimes medication is needed to help you with your depression and this is okay. However if you wish not to take medication you can still become involved with counselling.
