Help and Support for Depression

When does ‘feeling a bit low’ become depression?

Depression is about more than having the blues or feeling upset for few days. We all have bad days from time to time, but when you are depressed, you are continually sad or angry over long periods – weeks, months or even years. There are often also further symptoms:

Symptoms of Depression

  • Low self-esteem
  • Crying
  • Fatigue and reduced energy
  • Irregular weight loss or gain
  • Irritability
  • Low motivation
  • Suicidal ideas
  • Loss of libido
  • Sleep problems
  • Social withdrawal
  • Grief and loss
  • Difficulty everyday managing tasks and responsibilities

How can counselling and psychotherapy help me with my depression?

  • Identifying the underlying causes of your depressive mood and accompanying symptoms
  • Building awareness of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that develop into and maintain depressive moods
  • Developing coping strategies unique to you to reduce overall depression and manage low periods
  • Developing effective mental skills to prevent future depression
