Depression

At Circle Psychology Partners we offer therapy and counselling for depression in London and online. It’s normal to feel down or sad occasionally, but feeling lower than usual for a long time isn’t something you should just have to put up with.

As per the guidlines from NICE, clinical depression, which is often diagnosed as major depressive disorder, refers to feelings of sadness or low mood that last longer than two weeks. Moreover, such feelings can start to get in the way of your everyday life. If feeling depressed is starting to get in the way of you enjoying your life, therapy can help.

Everyone who suffers from depression will experience it differently depending on a variety of circumstances. However, there are some common signs and symptoms. Depression can range from mild to severe. If you have depression, some symptoms you might experience include:

  • feeling down or ‘numb’ for longer than two weeks
  • loss of interest in activities that you used to enjoy
  • reduced feelings of getting pleasure or enjoyment out of things 
  • difficulty concentrating/ remembering things
  • negative self-talk
  • lack of energy, or feeling fatigued
  • having feelings of worthlessness/guilt/hopeless and helpless
  • potential thoughts of self-harm or suicide

In the hopes to reduce the impact of some of these symptoms, our experienced team of clinical and counselling psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors are ready to help. We can offer therapy and counselling for depression in London and online. 

We have specialists for children, adolescents and adults and our therapeutic approaches include CBT, ACT, CFT, psychotherapy and more.
