Counselling

Depression is a common condition that will affect one in three people at some time in their life. It is a complicated illness with many different symptoms and causes.

Changes in eating habits and sleeping patterns and overwhelming feelings of despair are often the first signs of depression.

Many sufferers become emotionally detached from those around them and withdraw into a world of their own. Some describe it like being in a prison with no windows or doors, which can alienate friends and relatives, increasing the isolation.

There is no one cause of depression - it is often an interaction of genetic factors, body chemistry and life events. It spans the spectrum of negative states from feeling low to severe or clinical depression.

Counselling can be effective in treating mild to moderate depression, and is often combined with medication in more severe cases, which is sometimes known as clinical depression. Counselling can also help address low self-esteem, or relationship issues or persistent negative thinking.
