Like with anxiety, depression is probably showing you an area of your life that is screaming for attention. The sooner you see what it is and learn the skills to deal with it, the better.
Recent, or long term depression, it is good to know that skills can be learnt to deal with it. For example, learning to talk honestly about your real feelings, asking for something you need, like a hug or relaxed time together, or even help with something around the home. These skills can really help people with depression.
Many people with depression suffer silently, and many times on their own, often believing that they are the only one. With the right support this can be turned around and you can start to get your life back on track, feeling empowered, connected and hopeful again. Often, the first step in recovery is discovering that this support is available.
For more information, or an informal chat, give us a call and we can discuss if we can work together towards this.
Furthermore, I teach mindfulness, which studies have shown to be an excellent help with depression, as well as much more.
