Depression and Treatment
Therapy has an important role to play in depression treatment because it can help you to break the cycle of depression and get long-term benefit by dealing with the causes and contributory factors.
What causes Depression?
Depression is caused by stress and anxiety/worry and sometimes a setback or tragedy in your life. Some people are vulnerable and how they respond to a setback or tragedy sets off the cycle of depression.
Depression is an emotional state which is characterised by feelings of sadness and a loss of interest and pleasure in one’s usual activities, along with some or all of the other depression symptoms which have persisted for a period of at least two weeks. These symptoms may include: low mood, feelings of sadness and hopelessness, loss of interest and pleasure in usual activities, loss of appetite, lack of energy, sleep disturbance, agitation, irritability, feelings of worthlessness, feelings of guilt, lack of concentration, difficulty in thinking straight and making decisions, and having thoughts of suicide.

TESTIMONIALS – Success Stories – Depression Client
“When I went to Mary for help I had been anxious and stressed for a long time and I was getting more and more depressed. I wasn’t sleeping well and my energy levels were poor. Mary’s approach was great and it gave me a lift straight away. I liked the way she explained everything in such a simple way. It gave me hope. And I felt great after the relaxation at the end of the session each time. Mary advised me on things to do to help myself in the long run and helped me to get motivated to start doing things and she showed me techniques that helped too between sessions. I am back on track now and continue taking Mary’s advice on board and using the tools she gave me to manage to stay feeling good. Thank you, John (Co. Wicklow)”
