Therapy help for depressionDepression


Depression is a thief that steals from people, it robs them of energy, vitality, self-esteem, and any pleasure that they might previously have enjoyed. For some the physical intensity of their pain and despair makes suicide appear the only possible solution. Depression makes one self-centred but not selfish. As with a throbbing toothache, it’s hard to think about anything except your own personal hell when you are depressed.

depressionIf you suffer from depression, you are, sadly far from being alone. In fact, it has been estimated that there may be 300 million people in the world today who suffer from it. Depression has afflicted humans for as long have been kept. Indeed, it was first named as a condition about 2,400 years ago by the famous ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates, who called it “melancholia”. We all have the potential to become depressed, just as we all have the potential to become anxious, to grieve or fall in love. Depression in no respecter of status or fortune, indeed, many famous people throughout history have suffered from it. King Solomon, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill are well known examples from history. What is important to remember is that depression is not about human weakness. Extract from Overcoming Depression, author Paul Gilbert.

The Person- Centered Approach is as its name suggests that all things, including human beings have the innate ability to self - heal or as it’s called to self – actualise. Every person has this inbuilt ability so you can move out of depression and into a life of fun and freedom.
