Depression can hit you like a bad cold. You can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you’ve lots pleasure in things you used to enjoy. Nobody wants to feel that way. Many people experience depression. Depression is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy.
Depression is a medical condition and there is no shame in experiencing it. If you broke your arm, you wouldn’t be ashamed of yourself—of course not. You’d go to the doctor and let the doctor put you in a cast and monitor your healing. Talk therapy is a way to heal from depression without using medication.
With talk therapy, you and your therapist can create a safe environment to explore what’s hurting you. You’ll find where the hurt began and how it spread in your life. And you’ll be given tools to deal with the pain when it emerges in daily life. This awakening is part of the healing process. The therapists at A Better Life want to go on the healing journey with you.
