Depression - and asking for help
Updated: Dec 20, 2022
Are you struggling with Depression and finding it difficult to ask for help?
Maybe you don’t realise you need help yet!
Maybe you feel ashamed?
Have you tried to talk about how your feeling but feel like they don’t understand or aren’t
This can be so frustrating and disheartening. It makes you not want to talk about it at all doesn’t it!
What if I told you that, if we work with the conditions that cause the depression we can start to make you feel better?
There are many different methods of recovery, such as medication from your GP, although
some find this effective it may only mask the problem. There are self-help books, and self-
care tips on how to love yourself and be kind to yourself, there is also group therapy.......
But the most common and effective form of help is Counselling.
Talking through your thoughts and feelings with someone who won’t judge you, who gives
you the time and space to speak freely, or not speak at all if you wish, and who no doubt has
been there themselves, really does work.
It’s important to push yourself to find ways to start tackling your Depression.
Once you start on the first step you’ll see that you are able to rediscover an excitement for
Life and adventure and hopefully you can challenge yourself to:
Re-visit old stories and talk about your past
Change unhealthy behaviours
Re-connect and understand yourself
Feel good enough when you in private or in public
See a light at the end of the tunnel
Relax and Go with the flow
Break the chain of pain
Trust your feelings and those around you
Embrace release of stress and anxiety
Forgive yourself and others
Grow emotionally and psychologically
