Depression counselling

Depression can be a horrible thing to live through. You feel exhausted, unenthused, sadder than anything. You feel like sleeping all day, keeping anti-social hours. You withdraw from social contact and exist in a shell, keeping the world away from you.

Depression can afflict many of us at various times in our lives. It is not a sign of weakness to suffer from depression, no matter what our heads might be telling us at the time.

I know what it’s like to live with depression—I have lived with it at various stages of my life, and have no doubt I will live with it again.

I know there are some things I can do to help lessen the burden of depression in myself, and I can tell you about them, in a secure setting.

What some people THINK causes depression:

  • Weakness
  • Laziness
  • An inability to ‘suck it up’

What ACTUALLY causes depression:

  • Trauma
  • Abuse
  • Neglect
  • Bullying
  • Grief and loss
  • Overworking
  • Excess stress
  • Being ‘the carer’ at the expense of one’s own wellbeing
  • Genetic factors
  • Lack of fulfilment
  • Lifestyle factors
  • Body image issues
  • Perfectionism
  • Lack of social support
  • Low self-esteem

I also counsel depressed teenagers.
