It has been said that most depression is "anger turned inwards or a feeling of loss of control in one's life". Psychotherapy can help you process some of their painful past and regain control of your life. Where there is depression there is also anxiety/fear. We can take a look at some of the contributing factors to the anxiety. Sometimes your interpretation of the past has negative results to your present day life. Therapy looks at at what those interpretations are and correct them where they need correction. Using Family Systems Therapy, CBT and Emotion-Focused Therapy you will see what they think, feel and believe.

Depression is nothing to be afraid of, or ashamed of. Every individual has experienced depression, or sadness, at least once in their lives. Often just talking about depressed feelings can be a huge relief, and sometimes just bringing the "darkness" into the light through talk therapy can bring a lighter feeling to the felt darkness. In counselling therapy we will talk about what is being felt, the uncomfortable and unpleasant feelings, and look for strategies to lighten these feelings.

One of the most frequent reasons one will see a counsellor/therapist is for depression treatment. Therapy for depression works in many ways through emotional support, problem solving, examining and changing thinking styles (particularly lowering the amount of negative rumination), checking needs are met, looking at behaviour, and helping improve relationship skills. I will help you think about your problems in new and more empowering ways. I will help you to identify and draw on your own resources. Together we will work towards increasing your self confidence and independence.

Depression is a well-known and well-used word in our everyday language today. Many people experience some form of depression in their life or have a family member, friend or colleague who is experiencing depression. In order to make strides towards feeling better, we must first understand your history with depression, your triggers or things that make your symptoms worse, and understand your patterns of thinking and behaving. Once we understand these things we can begin making small and manageable behavioural changes to manage your symptoms and hopefully improve your mood and ability to cope.

If you suffer from anxiety or depression, you can make changes to your life that will free you from the weight of negative thinking, crippling tiredness and lack of motivation and energy. The first step to good emotional health is an understanding of your specific issues and stresses. The second step is to work with your therapist to develop coping skills that can raise your hope and your outlook on life. Hard work and good therapy can give you the power to change your world. Make the first step and call.

The role of therapy in treating clinical depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Many studies support the idea that therapy can be a powerful treatment for depression. A review published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, for example, concluded that therapy combined with antidepressants worked better than depression medicine alone. Although there are fewer studies of therapy for treatment-resistant depression specifically, many experts still recommend it. One 2007 study found that for people who didn't respond to a specific drug treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy worked as well in reducing symptoms.
