Depression, low mood, and loss

We can all experience low mood at some time in our lives, this is normal and to be expected. When this continues for a long period of time, or you feel it's getting in the way of your life, it is important to seek support.

 

Depression is a technical, medical term for your experiences, although you may use other terms like feelings down, lost, or hopeless. Scroll down to learn more about how I can help you with this.

Feeling low or depressed could be due to a loss of someone or something important your life, a significant transition, an illness, or even the arrival of something new and unfamiliar. Sometimes feeling low is a mask that hides other painful emotions, such as grief or anger. Whether you have felt low several times across your life, or this has happened to you for the first time, there is a path forward out of sadness.

We may use aspects of mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) for this work. We may focus on recent events or begin to explore how early childhood experiences factor into current difficulties.
