Depression is the leading cause of disability in the world, but because it’s a mental illness, it can be a lot harder to understand. One major source of confusion is the difference between having depression and just feeling depressed. 


Almost everyone feels down from time to time. Getting a bad grade, losing a job, having an argument, or even a rainy day (as we have in London all the time) can bring on feelings of sadness. Sometimes there’s no trigger at all; it just pops up out of the blue. 



Depression can have a lot of different symptoms:

-       A low mood

-       Loss of interest in things that you would normally enjoy

-       Changes in appetite

-       Feeling worthless or excessively guilty 


-       Sleeping either too much or too little

-       Poor concentration

-       Restlessness or slowness

-       Loss of energy 

-       Recurrent thoughts of suicide



My services can help you out in this matter as well as in other areas that you would be struggling with.
