Depression, whether relatively mild or more serious, is an uncomfortable experience for anyone who encounters it.
Depression is more than just feeling down. It is a persistent feeling of emptiness, lack of motivation, or even anger. Some clients report feeling nothing at all while others report feeling out of control.
At its worst, depression can eat away all the pleasure in our lives, leaving us with a sense of despair.
There are many reasons people experience depression and the reality is, its mechanism isn’t well understood. However, if your feelings of extreme sadness, emptiness or lethargy are something you find you cannot get over on your own, talk therapy is one of the things that can make a big difference.
Taking the step to face uncomfortable feelings can start a chain reaction of better experiences, better choices and a better outlook on your present reality.
