With depression, you may have been feeling lonely or withdrawn for a while, and not been able to ‘snap out of it’. Daily life becomes a chore, and simple things become a challenge. It may be difficult to socialise, and things that you enjoy doing lose their appeal.
How does it start?
Depression may start from a life event such as bereavement, or build up through lifestyle or relational difficulties. You may suffer from a loss of confidence and self-esteem, and lose interest on yourself: how you dress, and care for yourself. Feeling tearful and irritable, a lack of patience, a sense of frustration are all common signs of depression. Life is no fun, and it is difficult to lift your mood.
How can counselling help?
Counselling can unlock the door into understanding what contributes to depression. It is about being able to talk about your experiences, without being judged, or feeling embarrassed or awkward. Depression affects people on different ways- you are unique, and important, and deserve a chance to feel better.
I am thrilled to have such lovely reviews this month from both Equestrian Trade News and Therapy Today. It is so exciting that this book appeals to both the horse world and the mental health profession! I learned so much more writing it: a real learning curve which has given me a greater understanding of my horses, and myself as a human being, horse owner and rider.
I offer on-line counselling if this is preferable for face-to-face at these difficult times.
An introductory chat on the phone for up to 20 minutes is free of charge.
Shorter sessions are available: they last for half an hour and cost £20.
I use Whatsapp or Zoom. Normally, sessions last 50 minutes and cost £40. Email me to book a time and day for your first session, and we can then schedule in further sessions.You can pay by bank transfer, credit card or Paypal.
