Depression Therapy London

What is Depression?

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.

How Can Counselling Help?

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.

Whatever is triggering your depression, our CBT depression therapists can help you understand what’s keeping you stuck and show you the steps you can take to regain happiness and control of your life.
