Depression Can Be Overcome
Counselling Has Been Proven to Help…
Do you often feel sadness that you don’t understand?
If you are suffering from depression, you may often feel sad or numb. You may feel overcome by an inability to get moving, think clearly or concentrate fully.
If you are depressed, you may have changes in your appetite and spend much time sleeping, feeling hopeless and dejected. You may even feel suicidal at times.
Below is a list of depression symptoms:
If you experience five or more of these symptoms for longer than 2 weeks, or if the symptoms are severe enough to interfere with your daily routine, you likely need the help of a therapist who focuses on depression.
Anxiety and Depression Often Come Hand in Hand
Anxiety and depression disorders often operate together in people’s lives. If you are feeling both anxiety and depression, you are probably experiencing the effects of a trauma or difficult event that happened to you either recently or even years ago.
Research shows us that traumatic events trap energy in your nervous system. Without effective trauma counselling this energy and its accompanying symptoms can be difficult to resolve, but they can be treated with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming), one of the most popular and well-researched therapy techniques.
Benefits of depression therapy with me:
We all need support sometimes, particularly when we’re feeling depressed, anxious or confused about our life. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) concentrates on what can be done about these problems TODAY. It is an active, directive counselling approach that teaches the skills necessary to cope with problems. It is best used in conjunction with Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and other methods to resolve underlying trauma.
Depression therapy can work within a short period of time. Together, we can work to resolve your feelings of depression and discover what blocks exist that limit your full potential. Combining CBT, EMDR, mindfulness and other methods, we can focus on these challenges to find new and healthy ways of coping.
Therapy with me will help work out underlying feelings and issues that are causing your depression. During our counselling sessions, I provide you with a safe place to express and heal your feelings.
