We all go through ups and downs. Of course, we know that ups and downs are part of life. And, those difficult events are bound to occur. We may experience a loss, a betrayal, an unexpected change, or tragedy.

 

Many times, we experience feelings of sadness and despair that go with such events. Many of us move through them in a healthy manner. But what if the feelings of sadness and despair last a while with no relief? What if you try to feel better, but notice nothing is working? As despair increases, it becomes more of a struggle to complete daily tasks. More difficult to get along well with others. And, hard to take part in fun activities.

 

Is this what you are noticing? If so, you may have symptoms of depression.

Here are some other signs that you may be struggling with depression: 

  • Little interest or pleasure in doing things 

  • Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless 

  • Trouble falling or staying asleep, or sleeping too much 

  • Feeling tired or having little energy

  • Poor appetite or overeating

  • Feeling bad about yourself

  • Hypervigilance, or excessive anxiety

  • Feeling that you are a failure, or have let your family down

  • Fidgety or restless, or slower than usual movement

  • Unexplained, sudden mood issues after the birth of a baby

  • Thoughts that you would be better off dead or of hurting yourself

Depression Counseling Can Help You Heal

Counseling can be a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. It can help you learn more about how negative thoughts affect your feelings. Your depression therapist will help you learn how to intervene with negative thought patterns. This is vital, because it helps you feel more in control of your emotions. Intervening with distressing thoughts is just one of many skills your therapist will help you identify. A great tool you can use to manage your depression. Your therapist will help you identify more tools to help you remain more calm and present. Your therapist can also help you identify your strengths and how to use those strengths. Counseling can help you learn more about yourself and what you want, as well as what you don’t want. Your counselor can help you learn more about communicating this information to others in a healthy manner. Open, healthy communication can reduce depression and increase self-confidence.
