Depression can come out of nowhere or can be a reaction to something happening to us. People often do not understand why they are like that, it is invisible after all. If people have a broken leg, they go to the doctor, but when someone has depression, they do not know what to do.
People who have depression feel low and lack energy and are exhausted all the time. Some people are sad or feel nothing, are tearful, irritable or angry with a ‘short fuse’. People who are depressed do not enjoy things that they used to, they loose appetite or they comfort eat to excess. Their sleep pattern may be affected as well as concentration and memory. They can see no future. There is a loss of hope. Depression often has a knock on effect on their relationships and work.
If you are looking for help with your depression, counselling and psychotherapy will help you to get to the root of your low mood and to deal with the cause. At Kraków Counselling and Psychotherapy we often incorporate elements of cognitive behavioural therapy to help to lift the maintaining cycle of low mod.
