Depression is when you have a persistent feeling of sadness and a loss of interest or pleasure. This is different from the occasional feeling of being sad or down. Left untreated, it can be debilitating, or even worse, lead to suicide. You are not alone. There are approximately 350 million people worldwide who suffer from symptoms of depression.
Other signs: guilt, low self-worth, poor appetite, low energy, poor concentration, and/or disturbed sleep. This condition affects how you think, feel, and behave. It can lead to both emotional and physical problems.
Depression causes pain for both you and for those who care about you.
At Motivations Counseling we provide support and empathy so you feel safe. You need to be comfortable expressing your feelings and emotions. Your therapist will be there to provide support and guidance throughout this self-exploration process.
The most used approach to treat depression is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We have used this therapy approach to help other clients combat their depression. Together, through CBT, we will learn how your thoughts may be affecting your behaviors.
We believe that negative thoughts can lead to unwarranted feelings and inappropriate actions. By focusing on your thought processes, we can identify changes to improve your life.
