Depression

Do you feel sad all the time? Have you lost interest in activities that you used to enjoy? Has it started to interfere in your daily activities? Do you feel your life is meaningless?
These might be signs of depression. Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act (American Psychological Association).
According to World Health Organisation, more than 300 million people were suffering from depression worldwide in 2015, which is equivalent to 4.4% of the World’s total population. Depression is one of the most widespread mental health disorders . Unfortunately, it is largely undiagnosed and seldom treated.
A research estimates that 1 in 5 individuals living will experience some kind of depression during their lifetime. In a country of 127 million people, nearly one in four people have considered committing suicide due to either depression or anxiety or both.

  • SYMPTOMS

Depression can be defined as persistent sadness for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. It is being more than simply unhappy or fed up for a few days. Some of the common symptoms of depression are:

  • Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness – A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation.
  • Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure.
  • Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month.
  • Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping.
  • Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves.
  • Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete.
  • Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes.
  • Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports.
  • Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things.
  • Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

Some people think depression is petty and not a genuine health condition. They are wrong – it is a real illness with real symptoms. Depression is not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together".
The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people with depression can make a full recovery. Here, at Lyfsmile we provide you with best counselling (Cognitive Behavioural therapy) along with some spiritual practices that can help overcome depression and lead a more meaningful life.

Why to take a counseling or psychotherapy session?

Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk about your thoughts and feelings and in doing so find solutions to problems or dilemmas you feel comfortable with. Many people find that just having the chance to speak freely with somebody who is not personally involved and is not going to make judgments or give opinions is very helpful. Working together with a trained counselor allows you to look at your life in ways you may not have considered before and to gain insight and understanding. To some extent the terms 'counseling' and 'psychotherapy' are interchangeable. 'Psychotherapy' sometimes implies that the therapy will be longer term and some practioners also use the term to indicate a higher level of academic therapy training.

How is counseling done?

Exploring the assumptions you have about yourself and about life may reveal how they are holding you back and lead you to reassess or challenge those assumptions. Here, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained therapist, who will listen and support you without judging or criticizing. The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and through processes, and find unique solutions to your problems.

What will happen in the session?

Various kinds of therapies are offered according to client's needs. Some of the therapies that may be offered are: Existential Counselling: If the client reports having lost his/her purpose of life and feel completely hopeless then we help to discover their life purpose and strengthen a sense of purpose, meaning and control in life. Sometimes we tend to avoid responsibilities or even overburden ourselves with responsibilities; here at LyfSmile we help to make a balance in life so that we can enjoy our responsibilities. This can be relevant in sorting out relationship problems as well. Cognitive behavioural therapy: By challenging negative patterns of thought about the self and the world in order to alter your unwanted behavioral responses to situations and showing you how you can modify them if they are causing problems. This will involve cultivating an awareness of your thoughts and emotions and developing an ability to make different choices how you react to those thoughts and feelings. Both the approaches are, at heart, about taking control of the way you react to what life brings you rather than walking through it on automatic pilot. They show us that we can have freedom to choose how we respond to thoughts and feeling that initially might seem overwhelming.
