Depression is more than just feeling sad, its a complex and often overwhelming mental health condition. It can feel like a heavy cloud hanging over your life, affecting your thoughts, emotions and physical well-being.
Imagine experiencing persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or emptiness, along with changes in sleep patterns, appetite and energy levels. Depression can make daily tasks feel like an uphill battle and isolate you from things you once enjoyed. But remember, you don't have to face this alone.
Counselling offers a safe and supportive space, where you can explore the roots of your depression, develop coping strategies, and work towards rediscovering joy and purpose in your life. You're not defined, by your depression, with the support, healing and recovery are possible.
Remember, there are, additional services, out there, such as your G.P and Community Mental Health Teams. Please look at Additional Support Information for out-of-hours support.
