Work Depression

Are you struggling with depression?

Feelings of being persistently unhappy, hopeless or have lost interest in things you used to enjoy. People with depression can often feel anxious, or permanently low. Please remember that depression is treatable.

What is work depression?

Sadness, anxiety, loss of motivation, difficulty concentrating, unexplained bouts of crying, and boredom are just a small sampling of the things you may be feeling if you’re experiencing depressive symptoms at work.

Depression impacts how we feel, think and act. Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms.  However low you are feeling now, please remember that depression is treatable.

CBT is the treatment of choice for mild to moderate depression. If symptoms of depression are severe, and medication is required, then it has a greater effect if combined with CBT. Guidelines on depression, produced by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommend CBT as an effective psychological treatment to overcome depression and stay well. All our CBT Therapists are BABCP accredited therapists, so all are specifically trained to treat depression with CBT.
