If you are experiencing depression or depressed mood including any four of the above symptoms, and this is having a negative impact on the quality of your life then it is wise to seek the assistance of counselling. Seeking help is the next step.

People who are depressed may feel increasingly irritable, experience a sense of emptiness and hopelessness, and they often feel completely overwhelmed, losing interest in activities they once enjoyed. Real depression is also commonly accompanied by a variety of physical symptoms including lack of energy, problems sleeping, pronounced weight changes, and eventually, even serious illness.
Depression, crying, feeling tired, feeling angry, not coping and poor concentration is a secret but very common illness. Depression or depressive illness, is a much more severe and prolonged condition, with persistent sadness, negativity and difficulty coping. Those who have not suffered depressive illness can understand more clearly the suffering involved by recalling the most distressed state they have experienced in their own lives, and imagine that feeling continuing for weeks or months.

If depression has started to affect your daily life, or you have been experiencing physical and emotional symptoms for more than five weeks, it’s probably time to see your doctor and attend counselling. The good news is that depression is a recognized medical condition and like most diseases, it is treatable. While medications may be necessary to properly treat some forms of this condition, counselling is also an integral and highly effective part of the recovery process. While Counselling 4U is not a psychiatric organization, there are times when a referral may be needed. However we always seek to resolve issues whenever we can without the requirement for medication.

• Multiple demands on your time, leaving too little time to relax.
• Certain personality characteristics such as being anxious or worrying easily, lack of self-confidence, difficulty in being assertive, or excessive perfectionism.
• Having fragile biochemistry, either due to genetic factors, or as a result of viral infections, medical illness or recent childbirth.
• Drinking excessive alcohol or smoking excessive marijuana.
