Psychotherapy/ Counselling for Depression in Singapore

“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 on a 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.

TREATMENT FOR DEPRESSION

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.
