Moderate depression counselling

Most people in the UK will experience moderate depression at some point in their lives.

But not all people choose to get the right treatment for moderate depression.

There’s no need, however, to suffer the upsetting symptoms of moderate depression.

Counselling provides dramatic help to people suffering from moderate depression.

Moderate depression can seem indistinguishable from more major depression, but the key difference is severity not type of symptoms.

How debilitating someone’s depression is, and whether they can still function helps to define whether someone has moderate or major depression.

If you think you have moderate depression, or have already been diagnosed with moderate depression, call Stockport Counselling Services now on 0161 285 1925.
Diagnosing Moderate Depression

Moderate depression is diagnosed by listening to someone, namely about how they feel.

The symptoms of moderate depression can include any of the following:

  • Low mood (for two weeks or more)
  • Lack of interest in things that you used to enjoy
  • Sleeplessness
  • Sleeping too much
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • Poor motivation
  • Lack of appetite or Eating too much (comfort eating)
  • Persistent fatigue, poor concentration or indecisiveness
  • Recurrent thoughts or preoccupation with death or suicide
  • Increased alcohol or drug consumption
  • Withdrawal from family or friends
  • Persistent apathy or lethargy

It’s natural that everyone at some time may feel lower than at other times, and have occasional occurrences of these symptoms.

However, moderate depression is when these symptoms are experienced for a number of weeks.
