Depression is a common mental health difficulty that can often arise out of life stressors and loss, such as relationship breakdown or loss of employment.
There are different types of depression; and symptoms can be found in people regardless of income, social status or personal circumstances. The experienced team of Brisbane counsellors at Bowen Hills Psychology are trained to identify these variations of depression and provide the appropriate intervention to treat it.
Depression can leave people feeling like they’re just coasting through life with no real purpose or point to it all.
Depression is not something to be ashamed of, nor is it a character flaw, and seeing a counsellor to combat depression is a brave step towards positive change.
Depression is not something that people simply snap out of or get over, and requires a supportive environment to work through difficulties along with acquiring the skills and strategies to change thinking patterns, emotional responses and behaviour that can be contributing towards depression.
Symptoms Of Depression
Some of the symptoms include:
Always feeling tired or low energy
Feeling ‘blue’, sad, or flat
Withdrawing from interests/hobbies that would normally bring enjoyment
Withdrawing from social gatherings or events
Feeling aimless, or like there’s no point to anything
Difficulties concentrating or problems with memory
Changes to appetite or weight
Sleeping too much or not enough
Often, a lot of people can experience depression despite no immediately obvious cause or trigger, particularly in chronic depression or dysthymia.
