Depression Counselling in Kensington
Sometimes daily struggles can begin to take their toll, and it can be difficult to see the sun behind the clouds that are closing in.
Depression doesn’t discriminate. It can happen to people of any age, any background, and any gender. It’s a difficult, and often debilitating condition that affects an average of 1 in 6 women and 1 in 8 men across Australia.
Due to the sometimes-debilitating nature of this condition, it can be difficult to understand when to seek out help or to know who to ask. It’s important to understand that help is available, and often the first step towards treating depression is speaking to a professional. With Kensington Psychology and Well-Being’s depression counselling, you no longer have to suffer in silence.
Speak to your GP, and if the issue is understood to be a psychological one, you can be referred to one of our specialised psychologists. Our specialised psychologists have worked with clients throughout Norwood, Kensington, Adelaide, and interstate to assist them to better understand and manage their mental health through depression counselling.

Identifying the signs and symptoms of depression
Depression is mainly characterised by a sad or irritable mood for at least two weeks, a loss of interest in activities that were previously found pleasurable, and strong feelings of guilt, hopelessness, and worthlessness.
Other symptoms of depression include appetite changes, too much or too little sleep, poor motivation, increased anger levels, low energy, difficulty concentrating, and memory problems. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for depressive individuals to become socially withdrawn, lose interest in sex, have failed relationships, and even have suicidal ideation.
