Therapy for Depression

Depression can be overwhelming, and for many suffering from it, it can feel as if life may never again hold joy or happiness for them. Crying all the time, or feeling worthless are common symptoms, yet these are often misunderstood or even belittled. While the stigma surrounding mental health has lessened over the years, and many more people are coming forward to talk about their experiences with depression, it can still be painful and isolating for the individual.

Seeking help from a psychotherapist is one of the best things you can do if you feel you may be suffering from depression, and once you’ve received your diagnosis from a medical professional, they will likely recommend that you have counseling sessions to help you learn to manage, or overcome your symptoms.

Depression is no laughing matter, and whether your friends tell you to simply “cheer up”, or you worry that your feelings aren’t worthy, it’s important to remember that anything that makes you feel unbearably sad, angry, frustrated or alone, can be treated and you absolutely do not deserve to go through it alone.
