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.

What Are the Benefits of Therapy for Depression?

At KlearMinds, we have helped many people overcome a wide range depression symptoms. Here are just some of the ways in which we can help you to become a more positive and happier person:

  • Learn to understand how the root causes of depression symptoms can block positive change
  • Discover steps you can take to address the cause of depression and rebuild happiness
  • Understand how particular behaviours can fuel symptoms of depression, and how to change these
  • Learn how to stop negative automatic thoughts

  • Learn how you can rebuild happiness and fulfillment in your life
  • Discover how to develop a tool kit that you can use to prevent depression recurring in the future

Symptoms and Signs

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.

  • Changes in appetite
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Irritability

Daniella helped me to look… my life differently; by asking… Read More

Understanding Why Patterns Keep Repeating & How To Change
