Mild Depression Counselling

Mild depression is commonplace in the UK today, but can be eased through professional, counselling help.

Mild depression shares many symptoms with major depression, but lacks the same severity or persistence of these symptoms.

Nevertheless, mild depression is still detrimental to enjoying life to the full, so should be treated with counselling whenever possible.

Diagnosing Mild Depression

Mild depression is diagnosed by listening to how someone feels , or is often diagnosed through simple written tests conducted by GPs.

The difference between mild depression and simply feeling ‘blue’ revolves around duration, as mild depression symptoms can be long lasting, or regular in terms of episodes.

The symptoms of mild depression include:

  • 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 perfectly normal to experience some of these symptoms for brief periods, especially in reaction to a stressful event but when they become more frequent, it’s likely someone is suffering from mild depression.

Mild Depression Counselling

Stockport Counselling Services provide expert and caring counselling for people with mild depression.

We adopt an integrated approach to mild depression counselling, and choose the approach that is right for you.

We have found that some people with mild depression respond best to cognitive behavioural therapy, which looks at the way someone thinks and how that impacts on their feelings.

We can help people counter damaging thoughts, and adopt new mechanisms in thought and behaviour which can radically improve symptoms of mild depression.

We also help with understanding about the root causes of mild depression and can help in the prevention of further outbreaks in future life.

Often the hardest thing for anyone with mild depression to do is take that first step of seeking help.

But, it is vital to overcome this reticence as mild depression counselling can make a profound difference to someone experiencing symptoms of mild depression.
