Depression

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, unrelenting and 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, including feelings of hopelessness, unhappiness, anxiety and a loss of interest in things you used to enjoy. Physically you may feel tired, lethargic, lose your appetite, have aches and pains and little or no sex drive.

The intensity of the experience 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, detach from others and feel shame at not being able to overcome it. Depression is increasingly common with 1 in 10 suffering from depression at some time in their life and 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.
