Life has its ups and downs and feeling unhappy is a part of that pattern. However, depression is when those feelings won’t dissipate and they begin to take over your decision making in everyday life. Depression effects your life to the degree that you lose interest in everyday activities and feeling low is a consistant feeling. This is not a one off episode but a continuous cycle. Depression effects around one in every 10 people in the Uk and can last eight to ten months.


Symptoms of Depression

  • Low moods for long spells
  • No motivation for the things you normally enjoy doing
  • Lots of crying
  • Lack of self-confidence
  • Feeling lethargic and lacking in energy
  • Poor attention and no desire to make decisions
  • Guilt
  • Thoughts about death and suicidal thoughts
  • A loss of sex drive
  • Erratic sleeping and eating patterns.
  • Excessive drinking
  • Feelings of the smoking or drinking more alcohol than usual


Most people who suffer with depression will be first treated by their doctor, but any many cases better progress is made by a referral to a trained psychotherapist who specialises in mental health issues
