Depression

We offer treatment for Depression in our clinics in Godalming (near Guildford), Surrey and Haywards Heath, West Sussex, Petersfield and Portsmouth.

Depression is quite common and is likely to affect many of us at some point in our lives. Depression affects people in different ways and can manifest in a number of different symptoms, ranging from lasting feelings of sadness and hopelessness, to losing interest in the things you used to enjoy. Many people with depression also experience anxiety. There can be physical symptoms too, such as feeling constantly tired, sleeping badly, having no appetite or sex drive, and experiencing various aches and pains.

Treatment for Depression

Therapy:

We would typically recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (or therapeutic approaches derived from CBT including Compassion Focused Therapy, Schema Therapy and Mindfulness), which is recommended by NICE as one of the most effective interventions for depression and low mood.

Mindfulness:

Research suggests that once you have experienced an episode of depression in your life you are more likely to have recurring episodes. However Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) shows excellent results (through research trials) at reducing the risk of it recurring.

The Psychologists within The Psychology Company have extensive training and experience using Mindfulness as a way of helping to manage difficulties.
