What Can Counselling Help With?

A counsellor can help you identify what causes your feelings and work through them so that you can find solutions that work best for you. They'll also listen to your experiences and offer support as you navigate this difficult time.

Major Depression

This is a common mental health concern that is associated with feelings of sadness, worthlessness, and hopelessness. It can also involve feelings of irritability and loss of pleasure, among other difficult thoughts and feelings. Major depression usually lasts longer than two weeks. Counselling can help you understand why you feel the way you do and develop ways to cope with your symptoms.

Persistent Depressive Disorder

Persistent Depressive Disorder, also known as Dysthymia, is a chronic form of depression characterized by a low mood that lasts for at least two years and can have a significant impact on daily life. It can interfere with your ability to work, go to school, or enjoy recreational activities with friends and family members. It is often described as "the blues" or "feeling low."

Atypical Depression

A subtype of major depression, people who struggle with this often have increased appetite, weight gain, oversleep, experience heaviness in the limbs, and are more sensitive to rejection. Although their moods might improve for a short period of time due to positive events,
treatment from a mental health professional is necessary to receive accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
seasonal affective depression

Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD comes and goes with the seasons. It's often associated with the winter months, when days get shorter and darkness falls earlier, but can occur at any time of the year. SAD usually tends to be more severe and lasts longer than the average bout of depression. Counselling can help by providing helpful coping skills and encouraging positivity.

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

The symptoms of PMDD are similar to PMS, but they are more severe. Women with PMDD may experience depression, anxiety, changes in appetite, insomnia and difficulty concentrating. Counsellors can help women understand what's going on with their body and mind. They can also help them identify triggers and develop coping mechanisms for dealing with those triggers in the future.

Depression in Men

Depression in men looks different than it does in women. While both genders can experience a range of symptoms, men are more likely to show anger and aggression as opposed to sadness and withdrawal. Men are taught at a young age to "tough it out" which causes them to have a harder time expressing emotions or asking for help as they grow older. They may also struggle with the stigma around mental health issues. It is important to remember that depression has no gender bias. If you are feeling depressed, talk to a counsellor or someone you can trust.
