Alongside many years experience, I have a specialist qualification in working with mild to moderate depression ~ PCE-CfD (Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression) completed with Metanoia Institute, London.
There is no shame in feeling depressed ~ you are not your depression.
We all feel sad and low at times, but depression leads us to feel this way for weeks or months at a time.
As with everything we go through, we will have an experience that is unique to us, but there are common themes, often one of those is experiencing anxiety alongside.
Depression can affect us emotionally, cognitively and physically, so a body, mind, emotion approach addresses the whole of us.
There can be confusing, contradictory experiences happening for us, and if all of this has been a gradual process, we may not recognise that we are experiencing depression as it has just become our norm.
Many different things can lead us to experience depression, such as;
Ultimately, what our experiences mean to us affects how we feel and behave.
Talking about these with an appropriately qualified counsellor can help us to gain comfort, clarity, new resources, and ultimately the chance to improve our quality of life.
Counselling can be effective not only if you are directly experiencing depression, but also if you are living with, or close to someone who is experiencing depression.
Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-CfD) is an effective, evidence-based modality that is recommended by NICE for the treatment of mild to moderate depression.
