Depression is classed as a low mood that lasts for weeks or months, affecting your daily life.

  • Continuous low mood.
  • Cannot concentrate or focus

Online Counselling & Talking Therapies

Our telephone and online counselling services are a range of talking therapies that involves one of our trained therapists listening to you and helping you to find ways to deal with any emotional issues you may have. These type of counselling services mean that you are able to receive the support that you need from anywhere and are an ideal alternative to the many obstacles that people will face when seeking out talking therapy.

Meditation for Depression

You might feel a bit sceptical that meditation can help. Depression typically involves a lot of dark thoughts, such as hopelessness and worthlessness, so spending more time inside your mind might seem counter-intuitive to what you want to achieve. However, meditation changes your response to this negative thinking, teaching you to pay attention to your thoughts without being critical of yourself, accepting them, then letting them go.

Hypnotherapy can help a person learn to better control any feelings of anxiety, stress, and sadness. Hypnotherapy can also be used to treat any negative behaviours that could be worsening because of a person's depression. Contact us to find out more.
