Recover from depression with therapy and CBT. When you’re feeling low, you may not feel like reaching out for help. But therapy can be immensely helpful in improving your mood. Even though you may not feel like talking, it’s probably one of the best things you can do.
When should you get help?
Whether you’ve been feeling low for a while, or if it’s a new thing, it’s never too soon to seek help. There is no reason to feel embarrassed about depression: it can affect anybody at any stage of life.
Health and wellbeing
We’ll discuss your lifestyle including sleep patterns, exercise habits and healthy eating. Although this isn’t strictly part of therapy, it’s essential to take the time and effort to look after your overall wellbeing.
Has your whole outlook changed?
Depression can be accompanied by feelings of lethargy and exhaustion. You may lack the motivation to do the things you normally enjoy. Social situations may feel daunting rather than exciting.
How does therapy help?
Therapy gives you the opportunity not just to talk about your emotions, but to better understand them. Crucially, you will identify negative thoughts and beliefs and have the opportunity to get a fresh perspective. It’s a pragmatic process with long-lasting results that will enable you to completely recover from depression.
Learning new skills
You’ll learn powerful techniques to develop a more positive mindset and spot cognitive distortions like all-or-nothing thinking where your focus is drawn to the negative. Therapy will enable you to see when you’re screening out the positive.
