Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days. Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.
Depression is not a sign of weakness or something you can “snap out of” by “pulling yourself together”. With the right treatment and support, most people with depression can make a full recovery.
When you are depressed, things can seem hopeless and out of your control, but with the right help it can be possible to turn things around.
Understanding the roots of your depression and the triggers which set it off or keep it going, is the first foundation for positive change in depression therapy. Learning and implementing strategies that enable you to both alleviate depressive symptoms and prevent them from recurring in the future, is a very exciting phase of therapy for many people. This is when you really start to discover how therapy can empower you to break free from depression.

Everyone’s experience of depression varies, but there are some common signs and symptoms. It’s important to remember that these symptoms can be part of the normal ‘lows’ experienced by everyone now and again. However, the more symptoms you have, the stronger they are, and the longer they’ve lasted, the more likely it is that you’re dealing with depression. When these symptoms are causing problems in your life, getting help can strengthen your ability to beat depression.

Why do you become depressed?
There are many reasons why you might feel depressed, and these will differ from person to person. Sometimes the cause is obvious – a particular disappointment or frustration, or the loss of a loved one – but that’s not always the case. Typically, there are several underlying reasons and contributing factors working in combination to result in depression. These may include:
- Negative life events such as job loss, family problems or divorce
- Bereavement an how successfully you come to terms with your loss
- Childhood experiences including trauma and abuse, or lack of preparation for adult life
- Long term suppressed anger
- Personal circumstances such as loneliness, stress, physical exhaustion or disability
- Physical illness including viral infections (e.g. glandular fever), painful or chronic illnesses (e.g. arthritis), hormonal imbalances (e.g. underactive thyroid)
- Life threatening conditions such as cancer and heart disease
- Heavy drinking
- Heavy social media use
