Depression counselling

On average, around 1 in 6 women and 1 in 8 men in Australia will experience some level of depression. Statistics can be helpful in getting a picture of a mental health issue but these numbers do not highlight the impact depression has on an individual’s life. 

The impact of depression on a person’s life affects their ability to function and get through a day, being able to be effective at work or study and relationships with others is often affected. The individual experience of depression is varied and differs from person to person. While there is a list of depression symptoms, this does not mean this is a tick list as some people have a varied presentation and this may change over time. 

Depression is a widely used term that is often misunderstood as someone feeling ‘sad’. There are many misconceptions and stereotypes used to portray a person living with depression, and so it is important to unpack the symptoms of depression, the experiences, and treatment of depression to better inform the community.

We pride ourselves on providing a safe place for those who require counselling support to discuss any issues or past experiences they may wish to bring up.
