Depression is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days, but
there are two major types of depression – Situational and
Clinical. With situational depression, you may be experiencing
many of the symptoms of depression due to a situation you’re
currently undergoing such as a break-up, life transition, career
change, or grief. Clinical depression means your depression
may be more chronic and due to your brain chemistry along
with life circumstances. With clinical depression, the best
treatment typically includes some form of talk therapy (what we
do) and potentially getting on an anti-depressant. Situational
depression can be well treated with talk therapy alone. EMDR is
another highly effective treatment method for depression.
Some of the common symptoms of depression include:
Loss of interest in things that used to be enjoyable to you
Changes in appetite
Sadness & tearfulness
Suicidal thoughts or actions
If these symptoms last longer than 2 weeks, you may have Major Depressive Disorder and some form of treatment is very
necessary to get better.
