Most people in life feel sad, lonely, or depressed at times. It's a normal reaction to life's struggles, loss or our sense of self. This might look like a loss of interest in things that were once pleasurable, suicidal thoughts or attempts, pessimism, loss of appetite, fatigue, insomnia or other symptoms. However, when these feelings and behaviours become overwhelming, cause physical symptoms, and last for long periods of time, they can keep you from leading a normal everyday life. The good news is that depression is highly treatable, and extensive clinical research has shown that most people can be helped with psychotherapy services. At Catharsis Counselling & Psychotherapy, we work with clients on their presenting concerns to help them regain a sense of normalcy in their lives.
