By together tackling the stress / anxiety / depression, you can become more carefree and excited about life.
One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Are you struggling just to get out of bed each morning? Life just feels so full of anxiety and worry, by the end of the day you are left overwhelmed and exhausted. Is every happy moment overshadowed by depression, leaving you feeling like you are missing out on all the important little things in life? I understand the feeling of hopelessness, that nothing will ever get better. If you or your loved one are struggling and on the verge of giving up, it's time for a real change. Happiness is possible, and I would love to illuminate your path to self-discovery.

Depression Therapists
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 therapists in Essex. 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.
