What is Depression?

Depression is a mental condition in which affected individuals feel persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities. It significantly impacts both the physical and mental well-being of the individual. 

Everyone has both “down” days and days when they feel on top of the world, however, depression is a condition that entails feeling sad and down most of the time for at least a month or more.

Someone suffering from depression is likely to experience:

Persistent feelings of sadness or emptiness.

General feelings of fatigue or low energy.

Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities.

Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt

Drastic changes in appetite or weight.

Difficulty concentrating or making decisions.

Inability to sleep.

Thoughts of death or suicide.

If you are struggling with depression, it’s important to realise that you don’t have to fight it alone. We are here to help, and depression counselling with a dedicated psychologist is the first step in your journey towards a happy, healthy life.

Different Levels of Depression

There are varying levels of depression, ranging from mild depression to moderate depression, and severe depression. If left untreated, depression can take root and intensify over time, leading to more severe and frequent symptoms. Our depression counselling can help to curb negative feelings and thoughts that result from depression and equip individuals with tools to live life more positively.

Mild Depression: Individuals with mild depression experience some symptoms such as feeling down or demotivated, but to a much lesser extent that does not significantly affect their daily activities. 

Moderate Depression: Moderate depression has a more pronounced effect on individuals, often negatively affecting their mood, energy levels, and concentration. This results in some disruption in their daily life and functioning.

Severe Depression: At the level of severe depression, symptoms are intense and debilitating, making it difficult for individuals to carry out routine tasks and maintain relationships. They may also face an increased risk of self-harm or suicidal thoughts.

Through professional depression counselling, our clients can progressively regain control over their lives and emotions, empowering themselves to effectively cope with triggers and navigate difficult emotions.

As the depression lifts, improvements can be seen in social and personal relationships, where you are more confident to go out and socialise and are better able to connect with significant partners.
