Depression is more than occasional sadness. Depression can result in lack of interest in hobbies and socializing, disruptions in sleeping and eating, lowering your ability to cope with stress. It can cause irritability, angry outbursts, frequent crying, and suicidal thoughts. Depression affects how you feel and think, and how you manage stressful situations.
Psychotherapy helps with Depression by teaching how feelings, thoughts, and behavior are related, and help understand difficult situations or relationships that may be making your depression worse.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy, or CBT, can be helpful in changing patterns of thinking and behavior in order to change the way you feel. If you may be experiencing depression, Individual psychotherapy can help.
