“I don’t see a point anymore to be honest. I just don’t want to get up in the morning. I can’t sleep well. I can’t be bothered. I’m just… sad… all the time. And I want it all to end. What is wrong with me? Why is everyone else ok?”
At any one time, 1 in 10 people are experiencing the symptoms of depression. It’s a really common reason for trying therapy. If this sounds a bit like you, talking with a therapist will help you to move past this and feel better.
How can we treat Depression?
Talking therapies are very effective at improving mood and relieving depression.
This will involve working out why you are feeling that way, what makes it better and worse and how to use that information to improve your mood.
Therapy often starts with talking about the issue at hand and what you are doing daily at present to feel better.
We then design some changes together which are designed to get you feeling better, quickly.
We can then delve into your past a bit more to see if we can work out what might have made you susceptible to feeling this way.
With time and self-knowledge, you will gain the ability to self-regulate your mood better and so not feel so sad all the time.
We can also resolve the issues which made you more likely to be depressed in the first place.
From this, your mood will improve and you will be left more resilient and better equipped to manage your mood in future.
I offer all clients a free initial consultation. It gives you a chance to see if this will work for you without charge.
