What Is Depression?
Depression is a disabling mental health condition which affects all aspects of a person’s life, including how they feel, how they think and what they do. It can range from mild to severe, which results in the persons inability to function normally in work, family duties, and relationships. The earlier a person can seek help for the symptoms the more the condition can be managed.
Depression is a very common condition which affects more than one in ten people at any one time. If your depression is affecting you, don’t hesitate to seek help. Our Psychologists can decide on an effective treatment option that will assist you in a healthy lifestyle change.
All of our Psychologists are fully qualified and hold a current membership of the Psychological Society of Ireland.
How We Can Help
Typically, Psychologists will use the most effective evidence-based psychotherapeutic strategies to help alleviate symptoms of depression in a systematic and client-centred fashion. The Psychologist will take time to tailor psychotherapy to meet your individual needs. An initial goal may be to quickly identify opportunities for you to act in a way that diminishes the symptoms of depression. For example, thinking patterns may be closely examined to provide you with strategies to monitor and challenge unhelpful thoughts.
Attending psychotherapy can allow you to live more within the present moment with a calmer and more enlightened mind. Our aim for the sessions would be for you to look forward to your future, with a more positive and balanced outlook, and with far reduced symptoms of depression.
