Depression


TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK FROM DEPRESSION

Do you lack energy for your life? Are you often too tired or withdrawn to enjoy family, friends and the things in your life that used to bring you pleasure? Do you have trouble concentrating or getting things done? Do you often feel sad, overwhelmed, hopeless or worthless? Are you worried about your sleeping and/or eating habits? Does your mind feel like the proverbial hamster on a wheel, spinning round the same old well-worn tracks?

All of these are symptoms of depression and they prevent you from simply enjoying and living your life. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do about it. So many people suffer needlessly from depression when there are many simple changes you can make to start enjoying life again.

Tracy

“Tracy” is a client who came to see me because she was finding it difficult to function at work and had no idea why. She started making mistakes and finding tasks that used to be simple for her stressful and difficult. Her boss made things worse by noticing and criticizing. By the time Tracy came to a session, she was thinking about taking stress leave or quitting her job. She was sleeping poorly and afraid to go to work. She could not talk about this to anyone without feeling on the verge of tears.

In just a few sessions, Tracy was able to make sense of what was happening and to make the changes she needed to in her life to feel calmer, more at peace, not just at work, but in general.

John

“John” is another client who was not aware that he was suffering from depression, but was concerned about how quickly his temper would flare, how distant he was in relationships, and how relentless his mind was. He would often wake in the middle of the night, preoccupied with worry. He said he used to be spontaneous and fun-loving and wanted that old self back.

After just a few sessions, he was well on his way. Simply understanding what is wrong is a huge step in the right direction — so often depression goes untreated, which is tragic because treatment is successful in the vast majority of cases.

One of the many difficult things about living with depression is how isolating it can be. Just being about to talk about it can bring tremendous immediate relief. If you think you might be suffering from depression, reach out.
