What is Depression?

Everyone feels sadness, disappointment, or  a bit ‘blue’ occasionally. Depression, however, refers to a range of mood and other symptoms that are intense, overwhelming and persistent, causing high levels of distress to the individual. Depression interferes with people's day-to-day lives and relationships, and can negatively affect sleep, appetite, energy, motivation, libido and enjoyment of everyday activities.

At Lovett Psychology, I offer a multi-therapy approach to help you gain the skills and strategies to cope with everyday life, and improve mood. No matter how hard or overwhelming your issues may feel, remember other people who have experienced similar problems and are living satisfying and happy lives.
