Depression

Psychotherapy & counselling that works

DEPRESSION

At the lower end of the spectrum, depression may manifest simply as a low mood for a few days or feeling a bit jaded or out-of-sorts. At its most extreme, it can cause a person to completely shut down or feel unable to get out of bed and function in their everyday life.

Quality of sleep can be affected with sufferers waking up as tired as they went to bed. This creates a further downward spiral of issues which can compound the original symptoms. Over a prolonged period of time this will be very debilitating and in extreme cases the affected person may feel unable to carry on.

If this is affecting you, it is imperative that you seek professional help.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE DEPRESSION?

Many people may not be aware that there is a clinical diagnosis for their symptoms which often mimic the stresses of everyday life. This is one of the reasons that depression often goes undiagnosed.

Wanting to withdraw from normal daily life
Feeling constantly exhausted
 No enjoyment in hobbies and activities
Cyclical, or repeated negative thoughts

Typically attributed to a lack of sleep, bereavement, severe illness, a traumatic accident or incident or relationship problems, depression can start with one trigger but soon spread. If you are finding that your low moods are increasingly persistent, it may well be that you are suffering from depression and you must seek professional help.
 

CAN YOU MANAGE DEPRESSION YOURSELF?

We both understand that when suffering from depression, it can require a huge effort to do even the simplest of things. If you find that things are not improving then you need to accept that a more directed and professional approach is required to help you to understand what depression is, why it has affected you this way and importantly how to overcome it in the future. You can adopt the following advice to support your recovery:

 

Avoid known depressants

Minimise, or avoid, your intake of drugs and alcohol as they act as depressants.  Fatty and sugary foods can also result in extreme mood swings so eat a well-balanced diet.

Stay Connected

People suffering from depression can feel isolated due to a reduced amount of interaction and communication with those around them. Try to find opportunities to keep in touch with family and friends.
