Depression Counseling

What is Depression counseling?

Depression counseling, also known as therapy or psychotherapy, is a form of professional support aimed at helping individuals experiencing depression. It involves working with a trained therapist who provides a safe and non-judgmental space to explore and address the underlying causes of depression, manage symptoms, and develop coping strategies. The counselor helps individuals gain insights into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and assists in developing healthier perspectives, building resilience, and improving overall well-being.
