Feeling down, sad or blue is a common experience for us all, often occurring in response to disappointments, let downs, rejection, criticism.
Its often a fleeting mood state which doesn’t significantly impact on our functioning. Depression on the other hand is persistent, pervasive and relentless, characterised by a sense of despair, loss of interest in normal life activities, changes in appetite and weight, sleep disturbance, loss of energy, feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, impaired concentration, difficulty making decisions and impaired memory. Recurrent suicidal thoughts are common.
Psychological therapies can help people overcome depression and also provide strategies to help avoid it in the future. Contact Louise Morrow to discuss how psychological treatment might help you improve your mood, reduce negative thinking and regain your vitality.
Feeling sad or “down” at times is a normal response to certain situations such as disappointment, criticism, or rejection. Normal sadness does not significantly affect the way we function or our overall quality of life. Depression, on the other hand, is persistent and often requires treatment by a depression psychologist in Sydney CBD. Symptoms include a pervasive sense of despair, appetite or weight changes, loss of interest in things you usually enjoy, sleep problems, loss of energy, memory problems, or even suicidal thoughts. Depression counselling in Inner West Sydney can assist people in overcoming depression as well as teaching them strategies to avoid it going forward.
