Depression affects people in a variety of different ways. It can have an impact on your body, mood, behaviour and thoughts.
Most people experience feelings of sadness upset at times in their life. Depression however is low mood that lasts for a long time and affects your day to day living. This can sometimes be low mood that does not stop you leading your normal life, but everything feels harder and less worthwhile.
The symptoms of depression can vary greatly and sometimes their onset can be so gradual it’s hard to recognise the changes. Sometimes major life events can trigger depression.
Therapy provides a safe, confidential, and nurturing environment to explore your inner world. This can offer a platform to explore and vocalise difficult issues and thoughts that hard to express elsewhere.
The mini arena of the Counselling room can serve as an ideal opportunity to experience how it feels to express these emotions. Helpful strategies can be explored.
