Overcome Depression through Counselling

Depression is viewed to be the leading cause of disability, not only in the UK but across the entire world. Whilst depression can manifest in different ways and can lead on to further health issues the most common symptoms include feeling unhappy most of the time, losing interest in things you previously found joy in, and a sense of despair. 

If this sounds like you, or a loved one, then I want to help and support you as we work together to find a way back to your true self.

Counselling, although it might feel scary to begin with, could be the tool to help you unlock your feelings and emotions and work through what has led you to your current place in life. We will work together to unpack your troubles to help you find a way back to a happier, healthier you. A version of yourself who is engaged and switched on with life and who can find joy again in the things and the people around them.

Struggling with depression can impact and change your whole life, from your relationships with family and friends, to your success or failure in the workplace, to how you regard and look after yourself. The deeper you fall into that depression, and the longer you stay there, the harder it can be to overcome it and find your way back out. But it certainly isn’t impossible and together we can make that change, we will identify what is holding you back and find the right solutions to help you move forward.

Each counsellor or therapist will work in a different way, so it is important that you find the right person to work with. Someone that is relatable, that you feel you can trust and that you will ultimately open up to, even if you find it difficult to begin with. I pride myself on being all of these things and more.

  • A difficult home life 
  • Past trauma or abuse
  • Certain life events – such as losing a job or a relationship breakdown
  • Physical health conditions

Common symptoms of depression

  • Feelings of hopelessness

  • Constantly feeling tired
  • No appetite
  • A drop in or lack of sex drive


Things like experiencing depression and seeing a counsellor used to be taboo subjects, things that no one wanted to talk about as they felt that in order to need help they had somehow failed. That they were not ‘strong’ enough to cope on their own, even when others around them who were experiencing similar things seemed to be doing just fine. But this is simply not the case. In fact being able to recognise that you need help and then being ready to ask for it is a sign of strength and that you know yourself well enough to know when you need additional support.

Rather than struggle on alone and see your life become even harder to navigate get in touch today so that we can begin your journey to healing and living a life you love.

5 things you can do at home to help with depression

  1. Get regular exercise – this could be as simple as going for a walk. Being physically active is proven to support multiple different mental health disorders including depression.
  2. Focus on self-care – do something on a regular basis that is just for you. Something that you love, something that helps you to relax, something that brings a sparkle to your eye. It can be big or small as long as you take the time to do it. This helps to show yourself that you are valued and you are important.
  3. Stay in touch – try not to isolate yourself from your friends and family. It can be easy to decline social invitations and hide away instead, but it’s important that you try not to do this all of the time.
  4. Cut down on alcohol – being able to cut down on alcohol can be a great help as it is a depressant. Although you might feel an initial high as inhibitions drop away after a drink or two this soon turns into a negative downward spiral as the ‘depressant’ element of alcohol kicks in.
  5. Eat a healthy diet – try to eat a healthy diet that contains a range of different foods which can support your mental and physical health.
