It's an approach that works well whether you're struggling with anxiety or depression, a painful life event such as bereavement or divorce, a traumatic experience such as physical, sexual or emotional abuse or difficulties with personal or work relationships.
Are you struggling to get through each day? Feeling anxious and scared in these uncertain times? Has the lockdown exacerbated difficulties in your relationships? Have you experienced grief or loss? No-one goes through life unscathed, let alone a national crisis. It’s normal to feel distressed, overwhelmed or stuck. I have plenty of life experience as well as professional training so you can trust me to talk about anything that’s troubling you. I’ll meet you with warmth and kindness because I know that when you are heard and understood and accepted for who you are you can make changes that are right for you.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Wolverhampton. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
