Summer 2015 - Depression
Suddenly the dark gloomy winter is behind us, the evenings are longer, the weather is better and holidays are starting. With this comes the expectation that ones internal state or mood will start to improve too. With the prolific amount of self diagnosis of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), realising that the prolonged feelings and thoughts associated with depression have not lifted with the season can be quite a shock. The tragedy however is to not seek help with overcoming what you are going through at the moment. We place a huge amount of expectations on ourselves over the summer associating our long-term contentment with two months of the year! Counselling can really help to unfold and empower you to make changes in your life that will help you consistently thoughout the year. The changes developed through the process of counselling have an enduring quality that do not rise and fall with the seasons.
Counselling and psychotherapy can also help by providing a safe and supportive environment where you can talk through current and past problems and challenges, without worrying about being judged or stigmatised.
Psychotherapy is founded on a strong theoretical and clinical background with proven effectiveness. This service is confidential which in itself can enable the healing process.So if any of these questions ring true for you then counselling and psychotherapy can help:-
- Do you need someone to talk to?
- Are you finding it difficult to cope with life?
- Are you stressed and/or anxious?
- Are you feeling in despair?
- Have you lost someone close to you?
- Are your relationships in trouble?
- Have you experienced something difficult in your past that you now need to talk about?
- Is your confidence and self-esteem low?
The ethos of avrilkavanagh counselling services is to provide an accessible, modern and flexible approach to working through difficulties. The service aims to adapt theories and techniques within the profession and to work with each individual in a practical, realistic and grounded way. Every individual and problem(s) is unique and therefore therapy and support is tailored accordingly. At a cost of 65 euros per session it is worth taking the time to work through your problems.
