Feeling useless, guilty or flat? Experiencing thoughts about harming yourself? Feeling excessively tired or having trouble sleeping?

Symptoms of depression can leave you feeling empty, hopeless, and lacking in motivation or exhausted for long periods, interfering with your relationships, career and health.

You are not alone. In fact, depression affects one in six of us at some point. Talking therapy is one of the most effective treatments for depression. Counselling can help you to overcome your symptoms and improve your mood long term.

Depression therapy and counselling

We all feel sad and low at some points in life. But if your symptoms have persisted for several weeks, appear to be getting worse, or they are interfering with your relationships, career and daily life, you may be suffering from depression.

Therapy for depression can help you to explore and understand the causes and triggers of your depression. Therapists offer a safe, private, non-judgmental space for you to find the best way forward.

What is therapy for depression like?

Your therapist will often use a specific approach to help you tackle your depression, or they may combine several types of therapy to best suit you.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a common therapeutic approach used to treat depression. CBT can help you to identify any thought patterns causing your symptoms and help you to learn new techniques to cope with stressful situations.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is another popular choice for overcoming depression. Psychodynamic therapy can help you to understand the underlying root causes of your feelings and behaviour so that you are freer to live life on your own terms.
