Depression Counselling Vancouver
If you have been feeling depressed you might have noticed a low mood, lack of motivation, and loss of interest or pleasure for a couple of weeks or longer. Other symptoms of depression are difficulty concentrating, poor sleep, weight gain or loss, avoiding social situations, and thoughts of suicide. Sometimes people experience depression just in the winter months too, which they need support for at this time.
These depressive symptoms, however, are often the side effects of other parts of life, such as avoiding our thoughts and feelings, being highly self-critical, ignoring grief and painful memories, chronic stress or less-than-ideal lifestyle habits. The good news is that a skilled and compassionate professional can help take away the mystery of depression, working through shutdown and lethargic energies to help you retrain a productive and meaningful way of living. At Wellspring Counselling, we make this our mission.
