Life can be very challenging. We are sometimes faced with situations that are beyond our control, such as the loss of a loved one or the actions of our partners and families. We are not always in control of the experiences life gives us, but we are in control of how we deal with them. At times even our own actions or decisions cause us stress and pain. Whichever journey it is that you need to explore in order to heal and grow, remember to reach out for help. You do not have to go through it alone.

Disorder in ourselves and our relationships is a manifestation of unmet needs. The pain and distress we experience is often what brings us to therapy, as a problem to sort out but in fact, this pain response is an adaptive and survival orientated signal, telling us to pay attention. These signals are built in mechanisms communicating to us that something is out of balance; and we need to do something in order to restore our sense of balance. If we try to ignore the message or suppress it with substances or distraction, the symptoms do not disappear but but rather become amplified. Chaos and discomfort are fertile soil for change.

My name is Nayana, pronounced "9na"/ "Nine-nah". When it comes to counselling, I believe that the sustained impact of a Client's counselling work actually begins when they leave my counselling space; where they, independently, apply what they've learnt and pursue a healthier relationship with themself and the environments they interact with. For this purpose, I collaborate with my Client to create a safe space to explore, acknowledge, and develop an understanding of their internal dynamics, coping mechanisms, and opportunities for change. I use relevant counselling approaches that are tailored to meet each Clients' unique needs.

When we lived in villages, speaking to someone specifically equipped with skills when we had difficulties in our lives was a normal as breathing. Counselling has an origin as ancient as the genesis of humankind. Now that many of us are no longer in "the village", therapists play this critical role. Many people have believed that seeing a psychotherapist is only for people suffering from a mental illness. Therapy is not only treating mental health problems, it is about recognising the need for support, which we all need, during difficult parts of our lives. Therapy is about supporting healing, wellness and growth.

What is the goal of therapy for depression?

Therapy for depression has several major goals. One is to relieve the mental pain of depression, which distorts feeling and thinking so that sufferers cannot see beyond their current state of mind or envision feeling better. Another is to give people the mental tools to recognise and correct the kinds of distorted thinking that turn a problem into a catastrophe and lead to despair. Therapy also teaches people how to process negative emotions in constructive ways, so they have more control over their own emotional reactivity. And it helps people regain the ability to see themselves positively, the motivation to do things, and the capacity for pleasure.

What happens in therapy for depression?

Perhaps most important, no matter the type of therapy, patients form an alliance with the therapist; that connection is therapeutic in itself, plus it becomes an instrument of change. Patients learn to identify and to challenge their own erroneous beliefs and thoughts that amplify the effects of negative experiences. They learn to identify situations in which they are especially vulnerable. And they learn new patterns of thinking and behaving. They may be given “homework” assignments in which they practice their developing skills. In addition, good therapists regularly monitor patients to assess whether and how much the condition is improving.

What therapy types help with depression?

Several types of short-term therapy have been found effective, each targeting one or more areas of dysfunction. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) helps clients challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs, learn new behavioral strategies, and curb reactivity to distressing situations. Behavioural activation (BA) is a form of therapy often used in conjunction with CBT; it focuses on engagement in rewarding activity as a pathway to changing negative feelings and disturbed mood. Another widely used approach is interpersonal therapy (IPT), which targets the social difficulties that both give rise to and get exacerbated by depression. Therapists may combine approaches as needed.

Can therapy for depression be done online?

Studies have found that online therapy can be highly effective for treating depression, although it may be more challenging to build a good therapist-patient alliance on screen than in person—at least at first. However, online therapy can offer considerable advantages. Accessibility and convenience are tops among them. Some people actually find it easier to talk about problems online than in person. While online therapy typically limits visibility of facial expression and body gestures that give important nonverbal cues to a patient’s state of mind, it can give therapists a glimpse into a patient’s world and life, providing information that can be highly useful in guiding therapy.

How effective is therapy for depression?

Many studies show that therapy is highly effective provided that patients complete the prescribed course of therapy, commonly 16 to 20 sessions. Over the long term, it is more effective than medication and the effects are more enduring. As a result, psychotherapy has the power not just to relieve current suffering but to prevent future episodes of the disorder. Therapy reverses the dysfunction in neural circuitry that disposes individuals to a negative view of themselves, the world, and their future and they acquire coping techniques, problem-solving skills, and understanding of their own vulnerabilities that are useful over the course of a lifetime.
