Depression

Depression often wears a disguise and can creep up on you at any time, or age.

Sometimes it will be a specific situation around grief or loss, post-natal depression, sad syndrome, anger that can cause you to feel down and sad. Depression can also be around for people who find it difficult to express emotion or talk about how they are feeling.

Sometimes clients find it difficult to acknowledge they are depressed as they almost feel they don’t have any real reason to feel down.

“I have a lot to be grateful for; a good relationship, great kids, money in the bank, a job I enjoy… so what’s wrong with me? I just can’t pick myself up. I feel detached from the world around me, My thinking seems so negative and I am fearful I will never feel any better. Some days are worse than others but most of the time I feel I am living in a fog.”

If you persistently feel miserable and can’t find any joy in any area of your life it’s time to seek help. Don’t leave it any longer take action today.

Testimonial

Talking about your feelings can be hard. You need to be open and honest and often how you feel is hard to explain. Who you are speaking to, makes a big difference. I found Jenna thoughtful and supportive. Jenna gave me time to talk through my thoughts and gave kind and helpful feedback. Her structured approach combined with a natural easy manner gave me comfort when I needed it the most and helped me stay connected with what was right for me. I feel she gave me tools to address the challenges in my life and entrust in my own sense of self. This has given me the confidence to face the tests that life throws at me and assurance that I can be myself, and that’s OK. If you do feel you need support, I would highly recommend speaking with Jenna.
