Are you affected by depression and low moods?

From time to time we can all feel sad, miserable and fed up. While these are understandable reactions to upsetting or stressful events and experiences, it is also quite normal to experience them for no reason at all. But if they persist, they can be signs of depression

Depression affects one in six of us, with common symptoms including lack of motivation, difficulties in concentration, pessimism, sleep disturbances, irritability, crying, suicidal thoughts, social withdrawal, a sense of isolation, changes in appetite, loss of sex drive and lack of enthusiasm and pleasure.

​If you are suffering from depression you won’t find easy or quick relief. Your feelings of sadness can continue for weeks and months, and interfere significantly in your relationships, employment and health.

​Ignoring the root causes of depression can worsen the situation by allowing the symptoms to manifest and spiral down even further.

​How can counselling help?

​It’s important to remember is that you’re not alone, and help is at hand.

​Talking to one of our depression psychotherapists and counsellors here at Sullivan & Associates can help you tackle your depression and move forward with your life by working with you to examine the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are contributing to your low mood.

​We can also help you decide whether you might benefit from trying out cognitive behavioural therapy techniques, which focus on lifting the spiralling cycles of depression and low mood.Alternatively, you may prefer longer term counselling to work through underlying issues and have a space to talk through your feelings.
