DEPRESSION COUNSELING

Happy Woman

Depression is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest in activities that one previously enjoyed. It can affect various aspects of life, including mood, thoughts, behavior, and physical well-being. Depression is more than just feeling down or having a bad day; it's a pervasive condition that can significantly impact a person's quality of life and functioning. Depression can happen because we are not meeting the blue print, or life is not meeting our standards, and when things go wrong we can become very hard on our selves. Which will make us create unhealthy habits and self-sabotage. There is depression from Postpartum, bipolar, abusing drugs, medications, and being a teenager (not trying to be funny, but it is challenging being a teenager in this generation). 

 

Here's how we can help:​

  1. Providing a Safe and Supportive Space: Resilience offers a confidential and non-judgmental environment where individuals can express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of criticism or stigma. This safe space allows clients to explore the root causes of their depression and work through difficult emotions.

  2. Identifying and Challenging Negative Thoughts: Depression often involves distorted thinking patterns characterized by negative beliefs about oneself, others, and the future. Through Resilience, individuals can learn to identify these negative thought patterns and challenge them with more balanced and realistic perspectives. This process, known as cognitive restructuring, helps to reduce feelings of hopelessness and self-blame.

  3. Learning Coping Skills: Resilience equips individuals with practical coping strategies to manage their symptoms and navigate life's challenges more effectively. These skills may include relaxation techniques, problem-solving skills, assertiveness training, and stress management techniques. By learning healthy coping mechanisms, individuals can build resilience and better cope with the ups and downs of life.

  4. Exploring Underlying Issues: Depression can often be linked to underlying issues such as past traumas, unresolved conflicts, or unmet emotional needs. Here at Resilience, individuals have the opportunity to explore these underlying issues in a supportive therapeutic relationship. By gaining insight into the root causes of their depression, individuals can begin to heal and make positive changes in their lives.

  5. Setting Realistic Goals, create healthy habits, and Building Self-Efficacy: Depression can leave individuals feeling overwhelmed and demotivated, making it challenging to set and achieve goals. Here at Resilience, clients work collaboratively with their therapist to set realistic and achievable goals for themselves. However achieving goals is not the most important part of growth, it is the healthy habits we incorporate in their everyday life. One thing all clients will learn is how to become their healthy habit regardless of what situation they are in. Which will increase their efficiency and create the highest amount of resilience in their life. "Thoughts become you emotions, your emotions become your actions, actions become habits, and habits...are YOU!"

  6. Providing Emotional Support and Validation: Depression can be an isolating experience, and individuals may feel misunderstood or alone in their struggles. Resilience provides a space for individuals to receive emotional support, validation, and empathy from a trained professional. The therapeutic relationship itself can be a source of healing and comfort for individuals experiencing depression.
