Therapy for Depression
Feeling depressed is different from sadness. While everyone feels sad occasionally, if your sadness persists or gets worse over time, you may want to speak with a psychologist. People with depression usually describe an unexplained sadness, disinterest in things they used to enjoy, low energy, as well as changes in appetite, weight, or sleep. They may also feel guilty and have difficulty concentrating. Depression can interfere with your relationships, self-esteem, and work. It can make daily tasks, like getting out of bed or returning a phone call, seem almost impossible.
The good news is that there are several evidence-based therapies for depression. Imagine what it would be like if you felt joy again when doing the things you used to love! You could experience improved self-esteem, sleep, and energy. The negative thoughts that constantly rattle in your mind could finally quiet. Replacing them would be more realistic thinking about your worth and uniqueness as a human.
