You are tired of feeling worn down and not accomplishing basic tasks in your daily life. Maybe you find yourself feeling more and more isolated and generally uninterested. It is a struggle to get out of bed, stay focused, and you are crying more often than you feel is “normal.” You feel depressed and hopeless about your future but at the same time don’t want to feel like this any longer.
YOU MAY BE WONDERING IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING DEPRESSION
You may be familiar with this feeling or this may be the first time you have felt this low. In addition, depression affects more than just your mood. It affects your motivation, concentration, sleep, eating habits, thoughts, interest in activities. At times, it may make you contemplate suicide to end your suffering.
THERE IS HOPE
There is a way out and you can feel better. Our therapists at Heartland Therapy Connection can help you address the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are keeping you distressed and detached from the life you want to live. Our therapists use trauma-informed approaches to understand your difficulties from the perspective of the challenges you have faced, the social relationships you have learned from, and the attachments you have made and had broken on you. You are not broken. You deserve support to help you heal and grow into the person you want to be.
HOW WE CAN HELP WITH DEPRESSION
Some of the therapeutic methods we use to treat depression are interpersonal therapy, DBT, CBT, ACT, and narrative therapy. These approaches help clients identify what is most important to them. For example, they help clients find behaviors that help them feel better quickly and act in line with what matters most to them. Therapists collaborate with clients so they learn to accept, challenge, and modify the thoughts and behaviors that have been keeping them down. Clients learn skills to cope with stress, effectively communicate their needs, and function again. Accompanied by the compassionate understanding and warm support of their therapists, clients learn to identify and meet their needs in manageable steps. Our therapists work closely with clients to ensure these steps meet each individual’s unique needs and circumstances.
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY AND YOUR WELL-BEING IS OUR FOCUS
Clients who seek treatment for their depression at Heartland Therapy Connection start feeling better in as few as 3 or 4 sessions.
