People often describe depression as being like a fog. The persistent low mood, depleted energy and sense of meaninglessness can feel all-engulfing, and it can be difficult to imagine how anything will improve. Therapy can help you understand and manage these uncomfortable feelings, and explore where they may come from.
The fog of depression can descend for many reasons. Your feelings could be the reaction to a difficult experience or particular trauma; low self-esteem and confidence; unexpressed anger; or a feeling that you’re not being listened to or understood.
Our therapists can help you explore negative messages you may give yourself and look at how they may be weighing down on you. With time, therapy can help you move forward with a greater sense of resilience and possibility.
