Depression counselling Stafford and Stone

Depression counselling Stafford and Stone

I can help if you are struggling with depression. Your struggle is not a weakness or a moral failing – it is purely a signal that your needs are not being met. My persona and professional experience is that depression is not a biological illness  – and is always secondary to another problem.

Depression puts your life on hold and can create real problems in your life. It is extremely common and characterised by many symptoms. Every person will have their own combination of symptoms from the following:

  • down, upset or tearful
  • restless, agitated or irritable
  • feeling guilty or worthless – no self-confidence or self-esteem
  • empty and numb
  • isolated and unable to relate to other people – avoiding social events and activities you usually enjoy
  • finding no pleasure in life or things you usually enjoy
  • a sense of unreality
  • hopeless and despairing
  • self-harming or suicidal behaviour
  • finding it difficult to speak or think clearly
  • losing interest in sex
  • difficulty in remembering or concentrating on things
  • using more tobacco, alcohol or other drugs than usual
  • difficulty sleeping, or sleeping too much
  • feeling tired all the time
  • no appetite and losing weight, or eating too much and gaining weight
  • physical aches and pains with no obvious physical cause
  • moving very slowly, or being restless and agitated

I can offer you counselling and psychotherapy in Stafford that can help you understand and lift your depression using proven counselling techniques. Call me today on 07957 234 950 – I really look forward to working with you.
