Depression Hurts! Would Depression Therapy Help?
You may be experiencing deep feelings of sadness, emptiness and hopelessness that just won’t go away despite how very hard you have been trying.
You may have been desperately attempting to shake off the pessimism and refocus your motivation, but making decisions is hard and concentrating on accomplishing goals seems impossible.
Getting through the day can be exhausting but getting through the night may also present a battle with insomnia, early morning wakefulness or oversleeping.
Maybe you’ve also noticed a lack of interest in the activities that you once enjoyed, and a change in your eating patterns.
Perhaps your body just hurts and the fatigue and irritable restlessness have become unbearable.
Sometimes, you notice yourself withdrawing from others, or turning to food, alcohol or other addictive behaviours just to numb the pain.
Have you also experienced some disturbing thoughts about hurting yourself, or even tried to end your life?
You are not alone.
Depression is NOT a sign of weakness.
Depression Therapy Heals!
Instead of trying harder, it is time to TRY DIFFERENT!

During therapy, you will be encouraged to practice new behavioural skills, including Mindfulness Meditation that will establish a healthy cycle of self-acceptance, self-encouragement and self-celebration.
