    Live For A Happier Future

    When you’re sad, sometimes all it takes is a quick pick me up or a diversion to make you happy. And so, it’s an opportune time to get together with people who love you and who are always there to cheer you up. It can be an excuse to indulge yourself. However, if you still feel sad even after doing what you used to love, then it could be a sign of depression.

    People who are sad and who can’t get over it can feel paralysed. They are unable to move forward and remain stuck in their depression. As a result, you might experience any of these symptoms.

    • Your appetite changes – you might become a binge eater, or you overeat, or you lose your appetite altogether.
    • You feel sluggish all the time even after a good rest.
    • You lose interest in activities that previously brought you pleasure.
    • You avoid friends and family.

    Depression Counselling: Feeling sad or low is normal from time to time. Life can be hard when you face a breakup, a job loss, or a death of a loved one. But if those feelings don’t go away, even when things get better, you might have clinical depression. Doctors also call it “Major Depressive Disorder”.

    Clinical depression is very common and serious. It affects one in four women and one in six men in their lifetime. It can ruin your family, social and work life and your health. You shouldn’t ignore it, but many people do. They don’t realize they are depressed for a long time.

    Some people take Anti-Depression Medications (ADMs) to cope with depression. But research shows that they tend to mask the symptoms, not cure them. They can also have dangerous side-effects and increase the risk of relapse.

    People Psychology’s Melbourne, Brighton, Toorak, Double Bay NSW and Australia-Wide Telehealth team of psychologists use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and other proven psychotherapies to treat depression effectively. This approach works by helping you change your thoughts and behaviours.

    Our practice also uses evidence-based systems that improve the outcomes. Your psychologist will check your progress regularly. We are committed to making psychology work for you. Our clients are very satisfied with our services.

    Some of the symptoms of depression are:

    • Feeling low or hopeless
    • Losing interest or pleasure in things
    • Being very tired or having no energy
    • Eating too little or too much
    • Having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
    • Having no sexual desire
    • Having difficulty concentrating or remembering
    • Having physical pains or aches

    There is no clear cause for depression. It can be a mix of biological, psychological and social factors that affect people differently. Some people are more prone to it than others, because of their personality, coping style, childhood trauma, family history, or hormonal or biological issues.

    Here are some tips to help you deal with depression:

    • Do things that make you happy and enjoy them
    • Notice small positive things that happen or goals that you achieve
    • Make a list of things that you like or appreciate
    • Seek professional help when Depression Counselling is needed

    Depression is nothing to be ashamed of. Many famous people have talked openly about their struggles with it. They show that depression can be overcome with proper treatment.

    Depression Counselling along with various psychological treatment methods can help you recover from depression and live a full, happy, productive life.

    Our psychologists use proven methods to help you. They combine different evidence-based approaches, depending on your needs. Sometimes, they also recommend medication, which will be reviewed and then prescribed by your medical practitioner.
