“Depression is more than just low mood and can affect a person emotionally, cognitively and physically”
Depression is one of the most common yet ignored mental health problem! Did you know, that by end of year 2021, depression is expected to become the second most disabling condition in the World (first being heart disease)? Unfortunately, a large group of people experiencing depressive symptoms go undiagnosed and thus, untreated.
The state of depression makes everything feel extremely tough. People going through it find it almost impossible to improve their situation. However, depression doesn’t have to last forever. It can be treated. The condition can be reversed through professional help Psychotherapy for depressive symptoms helps clear brain fog, despair and the feeling of hopelessness.
Combinations of various brain-body modalities (EMDR, Brainspotting, Somatic) along with psychotherapy (Cognitive behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative therapy) is quite effective in finding clarity and hope. In some cases, psychiatric help is also required (which is ona case-to-case basis).
Depression leads to enduring a feeling of hopelessness that negatively impacts one’s mood, feelings, behavior and physical health. Professional therapy will address the root cause of depression. It will help you to feel more positive and hopeful while training your brain to think differently.
The symptoms of depression fall into three main categories: emotional, cognitive and physical. A person with depression can have multiple symptoms or just a few The presentation below summarizes the leading symptoms.
Lack of memory
Difficulty in focusing
Struggle in problem solving
Lack of attention
Change of appetite
Depression is usually ignored by most people. The condition is often mistaken for a general state of unhappiness, low spirits or a mood swing. However, delaying treatment can make recovery difficult.
Treatment for depression can be a genuine life-saver. It will prove to be a boon for managing some of the worst symptoms of depression. Medication can help provide short term relief and stability but it doesn’t provide a long-term cure. Research shows that psychotherapy combined with medication can be the most effective for curing severe depressive symptoms. Reaching out for help in the early stages of depression can lead to the avoidance of medication.
Helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness are hallmark characteristic features of depression but therapy helps to work on the symptom alleviation by addressing the root cause of the issue triggering the depression.
An attuned therapist opens her own heart space to accommodate the client’s pain and journey with them through, supporting and working towards healing.
Therapists at “Heal with Nav” are qualified to apply evidence-based therapies that are effective in treating depression. We believe in not just symptom management but sustainable healing. Various modalities used in helping with depression are :-
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy works by altering the way an individual thinks (cognition) and acts (behavior). The therapy also has an impact on the way one feels. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been found effective among children, adolescents, adults and older individuals.
The therapy helps people understand how their mood impacts their thinking styles and recognizing common distortions in their way of thinking. The major focus of this treatment is to help an individual understand how their mood gets affected by varied thinking styles and helps activating behavioral changes. This pattern helps an individual engage in productive and enjoyable activities.
Mindfulness Therapy is helpful in promoting a healthy mind. It can prevent a relapse by helping individuals understand various ways to focus on the present and improve self-awareness. The therapy helps one accept negative feelings and thoughts in a positive way without allowing them to overpower one’s mind.
EMDR, Brainspotting and SE are evidence-based brain-body modalities that help in sustainable healing as these address the root causes of the issue/person’s mental health struggle. (Further details about these modalities are given on other pages of our website)
