WHAT IS DEPRESSION?

During depression counseling sessions, our seasoned depression therapists explain depression to clients as a state of helplessness, loss of pleasure and sadness that is persistent or cyclical. Depression clients often report feeling depleted and incapable of going about regular life. In extreme cases, depression is accompanied by thoughts of ending one’s life.

WHAT CAUSES DEPRESSION?

In depression therapy, clients describe a multitude of reasons for their depression.

 

Some of the most notable reasons for our client's reported depression are... 

  • Experiencing a significant life change that is stressful in nature

  • Experiencing or witnessing trauma

  • A major change in an intimate relationship (breakup/divorce/death)

  • Distressing loss (job/money)

  • Feeling alone/unloved

Depression’s symptoms can vary greatly from person to person and may even change throughout the course of the depression.

It is important to distinguish between depression and grief. The overwhelming feeling of sadness associated with grief is a normal and important part of regaining equilibrium after a loss. Depression however tends to be more persistent and prolonged, and symptoms are less prone to decrease with time.

HOW CAN DEPRESSION COUNSELING HELP?

If a client is depressed because of a divorce, it might be easy to say that the divorce is the cause of the depression, but is that really true?

 

What about the divorce caused depression? What does it mean for that specific client that they got a divorce?

 

What were their aspirations for this marriage that they feel can no longer be achieved because of the divorce? It is in answering these questions and more like them that the true reason for the depression is revealed.

 

Many clients report that identifying the root cause of depression has been the single most therapeutic aspect of going to depression counseling.

WHAT ARE COMMON SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION?

Depression counselors hear their clients describe how their depression challenges manifest in numerous ways. Depression’s symptoms can vary greatly from person to person and may even change throughout the course of the depression. Symptoms may also vary depending on an individual's gender, culture, or age. Studies show for example that women are more likely to admit to depression than men.

Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Frequent crying and overwhelming feelings of sadness.

  • Feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness.

  • Changes in sleep such as excessive sleeping or the inability to sleep.

  • Anxiety.

  • Anger.

  • Difficulty enjoying previously-enjoyed activities.

  • Unexplained physical ailments such as headaches or muscle pain.

  • Difficulty concentrating.

  • Changes in weight or eating habits.

  • Thoughts of suicide.

This list is in no way exhaustive. Different people experience different symptoms for depression that can range in severity and manifestation.
