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
- Sleep difficulties
- 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.
The good news is you can get better!
