Counselling for Depression

Feeling depressed is depressing.  Physical symptoms of depression can include the following: crying, irritability, difficulty in concentration and lack of motivation, change in appetite, loss of sex drive, lack of pleasure and enthusiasm, feeling fed up,  poor sleep at night.

Depression is caused by a number of factors and the choices we make day to day really make a difference.  Some choices help us to feel better and some worsen our feelings of depression.

As your therapist I will support you to explore your feelings and choices and learn to challenge unhelpful thoughts. I will offer a regular, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to express your feelings, be heard and gain awareness of what contributes to your depression and how to manage it.  As we continue to work I would anticipate that you will find ways to cope with and overcome your feelings of depression so that you feel better and are able to enjoy life more.
