Depression

 

Depression affects one in three people during their lifetime, and is an issue that shouldn’t go unsupported. It can be extremely challenging to manage, with low mood, irritability, sleeplessness and negative thoughts all affecting your day-to-day life.

My counselling for depression aims to help you access and make sense of the underlying feelings or issues that are impacting your mental health, and start to make positive changes that enable you to cope.

What to expect

 

My sessions are an opportunity for you to reflect on the thoughts and feelings that may be causing or compounding your depression. They are a safe space in which you can discuss your experiences and express your emotions without being criticised or judged. Together, we’ll explore fresh perspectives on both yourself and the world around you, enabling you to rediscover a sense of balance.

 

How effective is counselling for depression?

 

 

According to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, studies have shown that counselling is an effective form of treatment for depression and anxiety. A minimum of six sessions is normally recommended, but everyone is different, so I give you the freedom to determine how long you wish to continue with the therapy after the initial meetings.

 

Confidentiality

 

 

 

Everything we talk about during your sessions is kept completely confidential and won’t be discussed with a third party without your consent. I do, however, have a duty to report information if I believe you are at risk of harm, or if required to do so by a court of law.

For further details on my counselling services for depression, or to book some time in to talk about how you feel, contact me today on 07510 495791 or email beckywhocares1@outlook.com. I’m always willing to listen.
