Depression

Depression is a debilitating illness and will affect one in six of us at some stage of our lives. It is characterized by a generalised low mood and a loss of interest in things previously enjoyed in life. Other symptoms may (but not necessarily) include poor concentration, irritability, crying, feeling hopeless and/ or helpless, under or over eating, under or over sleeping and possibly suicidal thoughts.

If you have been feeling this way for more than two weeks it is important to seek help so that you are not left struggling alone. A trained Counsellor or Psychotherapist will support you in developing coping strategies to help manage difficult days. We will work with you towards recovery and prevention of relapse.
