Sadness and Depression
We all experience feelings of sadness at some point in our lives. Depression, on the other hand, is when these feelings last for longer periods of time and start to affect your quality of life. Moreover, depression also causes other symptoms such as fatigue, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating and recurring thoughts of death and suicide. This program will help you overcome depression by taking you step-by-step through mapping your symptoms, identifying the main challenges in your life and understanding the relationships between your thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Using a combination of proven CBT techniques, relaxation exercises and gradual behaviour change, you will begin to alleviate your symptoms and develop healthy habits to help you move forward. By taking the time to work through each exercise you will gain greater control of your thoughts and emotions, learn to spot when you are acting based on biases in your thinking, develop healthy daily routines, and practice powerful tools for relaxation and stress regulation.
