Depression Counselling

Depression is not just a form of extreme sadness.

It is constant and oppressive.

Depression affects your brain and body and interferes with how you think, behave, and function at work and in relationships.

Let's talk about it

Do you want to break free of depression?

Some of us, sadly, seem more at risk of certain types of depression than others. We now know that life events, childhood experiences and genetics play a role in whether depression strikes or not and, if it does, how intensely. Depression can arrive seemingly out of nowhere or follow a stressful situation or a significant personal life change.

How do I know if I’m depressed?

Depression can interfere with your feelings, your thoughts, and what happens in your body. There are many symptoms, but here are some common ones.

How do I get help?

Depression is not your fault; it’s not a sign of weakness, and millions suffer too. Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 adults in the UK suffers from depression?

Is depression affecting your daily life?

Have you been experiencing some of the symptoms above for
over 4 or 5 weeks?

If your answer is yes to either or both

Then, I urge you to seek support. Talk to family and friends. Please consider making an appointment with your GP to discuss what’s going on for you. Counselling and psychotherapy are very successful in treating depression. You can contact me for an initial meeting. Come and meet me to see if you’d like to work with me.
