Depression is a condition that some people experience at some point in their life, often experiencing that there is a stigma attatched to it, you can often experience negative feedback feeling mis-understood.
When you feel depressed it is associated with feeling very sad and very unhappy for long periods of time, it can feel that you are being consumed by it.
I could talk more about the symptoms of depression, however i feel it more poignant to say that it is a unique experience for for every individual, because we all experience life differently it would make sense that everybody's experience is unique to you.
Depression often leaves you feeling dis-connected with yourself and life and people that you may have been close to,this can leave you feeling isolated and confused.
Counselling can help you to make sense of what depression means for you, enabling you to re-connect with your inner feelings and others around you.It can help you to discover a new confidence within and building back your self-esteem, value and worth within....
Bereavement and Loss....We recognise bereavement in terms of loosing someone close to us, this can be a really difficult period in our life to work through and for most of us we understand that we need to grieve, this is a normal aspect within the process, however it can challenge our own mortality and reasoning especially if we feel we are unprepared.
Grief can bring an overwhelming amount of feelings from Anger, guilt, hopelesness and deep pain within us.
For some people can get stuck in the grieving process for a long time unable to come to terms with what has happened, because we are so complex as human beings it can be difficult to comprehend the depth of grief and it is so personal to our experience it can leave us feeling isolated and alone.
Counselling can help to support you through the process of grieving enabling you to express and understand your inner feelings and let go in order to move forward into a new way of coping, enabling you to re-connect with yourself and with life.
