Counseling for Depression
Do you feel that pleasure and joy has gone out of your life? Have you lost interest in things that used to be important to you? Does your future feel hopeless? Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad. But these feelings are usually short-lived and pass within a couple of days. When you have depression, it interferes with daily life and causes pain for both you and those who care about you. Depression is a common but serious condition. Counseling for depression can help.
Many people with depression never seek treatment. But the majority, even those with the most severe depression, can get better with treatment. Mental Health Counseling, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and other methods have been shown to effectively treat people with depression.
People with depression do not all experience the same symptoms. The severity, frequency, and duration of symptoms vary widely.
Common signs and symptoms of depression include:
- Dominant and persistent feelings of sadness
- Lack of interest or pleasure in normal daily activities
- Decreased self esteem
- Trouble concentrating and focusing
- Changes in appetite
- Sleep disturbances
- Fatigue or loss of energy
- Significant feelings of worthlessness or guilt
- Thoughts of suicide
