Coping with Depression
Depression is a feeling of persistent sadness that can last for days at a time and can interfere with our daily functioning. Feelings of depression may be triggered by a painful life experience, such as an illness, a death in the family, losing a job, a divorce, or facing relationship issues. Other times depression may arise from feeling lost from our path and purpose in life. Some may feel depressed without any particular ‘known’ reason. Feeling depressed may cause a person to withdraw from participating in daily routines and activities with family and friends, and some individuals may also carry thoughts of suicide.
Psychotherapy can help you resolve the mental, emotional and spiritual influences creating depression. In our session together a safe, confidential and supportive environment will be provided so that you can explore unexpressed feelings and concerns and begin healing difficult emotions. During psychotherapy you will learn how to overcome mental and emotional blocks, learn strategies for self-healing, and begin building a life towards your passion, purpose and joy.
Psychotherapy can help people experiencing depression:
- Regain a sense of enjoyment in life by learning strategies for managing thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
- Solve or improve life situations that are contributing to depression, and enhance mental and emotional well-being.
- Transform limiting beliefs and thinking patterns that lead to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Feel more empowered and in control of your life.
- Recognize your inner potential, strengths and wisdom for achieving personal healing, well-being and positive life directions.
