Depression therapy can help you to manage depression symptoms, find a way out of depression and help stop you falling into long periods of depression. I use psychotherapy, EMDR , polyvagal theory and behavioural therapy to help people with depression.
Depression affects 1 in every 6 adults in the UK. Women are at a higher risk than men from experiencing depression. Depression can be linked to other underlying mental health conditions which might include anxiety, stess, loneliness and trauma.

Depression Therapy FAQ's
What does a depression therapy session look like?
I always begin therapy by getting to know you and where you are at. We might work on some of the root causes of the depression with psychotherapy or EMDR. We might use behavioural therapy to help you find a structured way of moving forward.
How long does depression therapy take?
Depression therapy varies in length of time in relation to how long it takes. If you have different strands in relation to the cause of depression we would take a psychotherapeutic apporoach which might last a number of months.
