What is depression?

Depression can be felt in many different ways. You could be feeling down, sad, guilty, or even angry. You’re likely experiencing a loss of interest in daily activities that you were previously interested in.

In general, depression can take away your sense of enjoyment and self-esteem. It is a serious mental health issue.

The good news is you have the power to find an effective treatment plan. Even if you’re not totally sure if you’re experiencing this issue, counselling for depression can still help. With online therapy for depression, a mental health professional can offer valuable support.

Symptoms of Depression

Clinical depression, also called major depressive disorder, is persistent. It’s characterized by a sad and despairing mood. Specifically, it lasts most of the day, for most days, or for more than two weeks.

This can affect your performance at work, school, and in social relationships. Depression can cause physical symptoms as well like trouble sleeping, or changes in weight. These symptoms may gradually increase in severity, which can make them harder to easily identify.

The symptoms of depression can also make it harder to seek treatment. With online depression counselling, you have a simpler, more convenient way to connect with your counsellor anytime, anywhere.

How can depression be addressed?

Good diet and nutrition, regular exercise, quality time with friends and family, or working on a hobby that's important to you can all contribute to improving mood and depressive feelings.

However, outside support is valuable. Sometimes, it’s the only effective path to dealing with depression. Counsellors for depression understand this complex issue and can help to treat it.

We recommend meeting with a counsellor or doctor who can support you in recovering from depression. They can help you set goals and build realistic, reliable strategies that address your depression symptoms.
