When a person is depressed, understandably their primary focus is often on how to lift that depression; how to get rid of the symptoms that make life at best, just going through the motions, and at worst, entirely hopeless. And then there is often guilt in response to the messaging from well-meaning family and friends, who just don't seem to get it. My therapy approach to depression is to explore the factors that may have necessitated the symptoms of depression in the first place. More than likely something has occurred that led to a loss of purpose or meaning. From this starting point, there is hope of restoring the energy that has become inaccessible and resetting the life journey.
