In our service we consider the potential the biological, psychological and social triggers for depression, and design your therapy accordingly. For example, stressful life events can sometimes trigger depression. Such things as a marriage break ups, isolation, prolonged work stress, living in an uncaring relationship, neglect or abuse in childhood.
However depression can be triggered by internal physical problems such as poor diet, drugs/ alcohol, excessive stress, hormone issues, lack of certain vitamins/ minerals, Celiac disease, poor sleep, physical illness, ageing brain. It is important that your therapist rules out physical causes for your depression.
Full recovery from depression is possible. Research has demonstrated that a personalised therapeutic approach is extremely powerful in overcoming depression.
