What is depression?
Feelings of sadness are a normal part of life that affect us all. However, if these feelings become overwhelming or remain constant, you may be experiencing depression. Depression is a common mood disorder often triggered by life events that are difficult to cope with. If you have experiend a prolonged bout of flat mood and/or a dark worldview, it could be advantageous to seek professional help.
Common symptoms of depression include:
- Low energy, fatigue and reduced activity
- Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
- Loss of appetite or weight
- Trouble concentrating, making decisions and remembering things
- Slowed body movements, thinking or speech
- Diminished sex drive
- Feeling sick and run down
- Digestive problems
What is depression counselling?
I offer a range of evidence-based therapies to help you identify why you feel depressed and equip you with the necessary skills and strategies to help you manage your experience of depression. Using a variety of cognitive and behavioural techniques, as well as traditional ‘talk-based’ therapies, counselling for depression can help you move toward a more satisfying and contented life.
Depression counselling may include helping you identify the causes of your depression, understanding and managing underlying emotions, talking about your personal and family history, strengthening resilience skills and mindfulness practices.
Counselling for depression can be very effective at helping you learn to recognise the triggers of your depression, its origins, and how to move past it.
My practice is conveniently located in Surry Hills, a short walk from Central train station.
If you are interested in discussing your specific needs, how I might be able to help, or to book a free, no obligation brief consultation (5-10 minutes), please feel free to contact me.
