View All Services

Depression can happen to anyone and quite often it is sparked by a major change in our life such as the break-up of a relationship, a bereavement, or an illness, however there are many factors that contribute to Depression. Below are some examples;

  • Family history of depression
  • Poverty
  • Unemployment
  • Social isolation
  • Stressful life events

Regular use of alcohol or drugs, often first used to help block out the effects of low mood, can have the opposite effect and in many cases also contribute to depression. Over half of those diagnosed with depression also suffer from anxiety while other associated feelings include guilt, low self-esteem and anger. Some common symptoms of depression;

  • Significant weight change
  • Diminished concentration
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in things which used to give pleasure
  • Feelings of worthlessness

The good news is that depression is usually not a permanent state, and Counselling can help you to combat it. Achieve Wellbeing Counselling Services can provide a safe and confidential space for you to acknowledge your feelings and begin your journey towards fighting back against depression.
