Many people experience depression at some point in their life, and often find that psychological treatment for depression is essential in their recovery. Depression is more than feeling down for a while in relation to a specific life event. It is a strong and enduring mood which involves sadness, irritability, along with feeling discouraged, unmotivated, hopeless, and as if nothing is much fun anymore. The symptoms of depression make it difficult to pull yourself out of this low mood and people often get trapped in a negative cycle that is hard to see your way out of. Depression may occur after an important loss, or perceived failure, or may appear to come out of nowhere. Finding the right person to talk to is an important part of treatment for depression. Our team of depression counsellors in South Melbourne can assist you through counselling to understand your experience and change your responses in a manner that reduces suffering and empowers you to take your life back.
