Seeking help is key
According to the Mental Health Foundation one in six people are estimated to experience depression in their life time. But the Foundation say this figure is an underestimate as many depressed people don’t ask for help or tell anyone. So seeking help is in itself a vital first step.
Depression is different for each one of us
It is important to find out what the word “depression” means for you as an individual as it is different for everyone. My aim as your counsellor is to work with you so I can find out how the particular difficulties you face are shaped by your own specific, deep seated and hidden thoughts.
A reaction to loss?
One way of thinking about depression is that it is your own very personal reaction to loss. This can be of a relationship, of a job or through bereavement. It is normal to feel sadness and sometimes guilt and anger at such events. Experiencing these feelings are part of the process of learning to live with what has happened. But if this process of grieving is inhibited and we are unable to acknowledge the nature of our loss, what the loss really means to us as an individual and how angry we feel deep down then depression can take hold. This is where counselling or psychotherapy can sometimes help.
