Do you have feelings of sadness and hopelessness, problems sleeping or are you experiencing a loss of energy and interest in daily activities? Feeling sad or having mood swings, are just normal reactions to the ups and downs of life that everybody experiences. But if emptiness, worthlessness and helplessness have taken hold of your life and will not go away, you may be suffering from depression.
Most often, depression interferes with one's daily life and causes distress for both you and those who care about you. It makes it tough to function and enjoy your day-to-day life. You can no longer work, study, eat, sleep and enjoy life like you once did. Some even experience depression that is like living in "a black hole".
Our therapy for depression is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It's your automatic dysfunctional thinking that causes your depression. It keeps you in a downwards spiral of degrading thoughts about yourself and the world around you. With the guidance of our online therapy program for depression and your therapist, you will learn that these negative thoughts are not reality. It is instead a dysfunctional perception of your life and something that can be replaced with more realistic and healthier ways of thinking. Using CBT you will learn coping strategies, so that you eventually will be able to face previously feared situations without getting anxious or feeling depressed. The focus of the therapy is not on the past and what caused your depression symptoms. Your therapist will work on making you feel better about yourself, here and now - and in the future.
