One to One Therapy Counselling

Depression is a term, which may describe people who are struggling with negative thoughts, low moods and experiencing little energy.  A fundamental desire for life seems to have disappeared.

When it comes to treating depression, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because therapy—unlike depression medication—treats more than just the symptoms of the problem.


Therapy can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears; learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways; and develop better coping and problem-solving skills.
Therapy gives you the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches you how to use them.

The causes of depression are varied and are specific to each person.

Something could have happened, such as:

  • Bereavement (not coming to terms with the lost)

  • The breakup of a relationship

  • Financial problems

  • Illness

  • Other issues, which cause distress

  • Or just as importantly - nothing specific may have happened but a sadness remains with you

The symptoms that accompanying the diagnosis of depression, may include:

  • Sadness

  • Self-criticism

  • Despair

  • Hopelessness

  • Excessive tiredness

  • Shame

  • Guilt

  • Apathy

  • Low energy

  • Low level of concentration

There are three degrees of depression: Mild, Moderate & Severe.

Mild: If you feel you are suffering from mild depression you may feel a low melancholy state accompanied by excessive tiredness or perhaps poor concentration but you can function in life.  Does this describe your current mood?

Moderate: You  can function in life but you find it increasingly difficult to cope with everyday stresses.

Severe: You can experience very low levels of motivation, you cannot function properly in normal everyday tasks. Maybe you will have a very pessimistic outlook of life even going as far as feeling suicidal thoughts.
