Therapy for Depression in Toronto
How Therapy for Depression Works
Depression is more than just about the blues, or something you can “snap out of” if you just try hard enough. Depression can create persistent feelings of sadness, fatigue or restlessness which can interfere with your daily activities (like work, sleep, study, eating and socializing), and keep you from enjoying the things you once loved to do. It can also seriously compromise your ability to achieve your goals in life.
Comprehensive Depression Help
Some people may regard depression as a sign of weakness, which can compound the sense of worthlessness and isolation they may be feeling. Depression is, in fact, a recognized emotional illness which may be triggered by events in one’s life, both in the present and from the past. Often depression can be exacerbated by the way present events in one’s life resonate with past hurtful experiences.
When the present and the past align negatively in this way, depression can result. It can be like a “perfect storm” leading you down a negative spiral. By separating the way you perceive and react to things because of past experiences, and instead see the present for what it really is, psychotherapy can address and alleviate these depressed feelings and behaviors.
