What Is Depression?
Depression is mental health condition that is estimated to impact more than 30% of adults at some point in their lives. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can impact your job, family, relationships and general day-to-day functioning.
Many people with depression describe feeling unmotivated. They may like they are in a fog. Depression can be a chronic condition or it can come and go at various points of life. A family history of depression increases the likelihood that you may be experiencing depression. Anxiety is similar to depression and it can be just as difficult to manage.
How Therapy Helps With Depression
Therapy is a dynamic process that helps people address their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Through establishing a therapeutic relationship with a therapist, people grow more comfortable to talk about the things that matter most to them.
Depressed people are often struggling with feeling helpless, not lovable and experience low self worth. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidenced-based approach that helps people address the automatic thoughts and beliefs that maintain the unwanted symptoms of depression. Working with the right therapist can help you experience relief from symptoms in a short time period.
