Depression is more than just feeling low, unhappy or unmotivated for a few days. It is when these feelings go on for weeks or months at a time, taking over a person’s life. Depression is not something you can simply ‘snap out of’. It is an illness with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional symptoms. These include: feelings of hopelessness, unhappiness, anxiety and a loss of interest in things you used to enjoy. Physically you may feel tired, lose your appetite, feel pains and little or no sex drive.

The intensity of depression varies from feeling very low or tearful to feeling suicidal. It can be hard to seek help, as those with depression may isolate themselves. For example, they may detach from others and feel shame at not being able to overcome it. Depression is increasingly common, with 1 in 10 people suffering from depression at some time in their life. With the right support and treatment it is possible to fully recover.

At The Eaves, our counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists offer a safe place for you to discuss your feelings and how they are affecting you. We can help you learn new coping mechanisms so you can respond differently to difficult situations, and ultimately take back control of your life.

I felt confident talking about problems I was having in my life. Has really made a difference for me and helped me understand myself/thoughts/feelings a lot better.

I was impressed by how quickly I could talk to someone and arrange my first session. [my Counsellor] has been great as a therapist – she put me at ease immediately, made me feel comfortable and helped me see things in different ways that will help going forward. Thanks everyone.

This experience has been positive and supportive. I feel more in control and empowered. I still have the issues but am currently more confident to deal with my emotions. Thank you.
