Depression Counselling in Melbourne with Wendy Jacobs
Depression affects around one million Australians every year. On average, it is estimated that 1 in 8 men and 1 in 5 women will experience depression at some stage in their lives. The good news is, there are plenty of support options if you have been diagnosed, or if you feel you need a little extra help. Depression counselling can produce good results on its own or in conjunction with other therapies.
What is depression?
It’s normal to feel down sometimes. Life events such as the death of a loved one, stress at work or with study, and relationship tension can cause sadness. However, problems arise when a person feels ‘blue’ all the time, for no discernable reason. Depression can have an impact on a person’s personal and professional life.
How does counselling help?
Depression counselling can help a person identify and avoid/alter situations in which their negative feelings are exacerbated. Having an independent professional to talk to can often help a client discuss their thoughts and ideas without fear of judgement. Most importantly, the counselling process can help demystify emotions, reactions and behaviour, allowing the client to take control again.
