We all have times in our lives when we feel low or sad. But if these feelings last for a long time or affect your day-to-day life, it could be a sign that you have depression.
Depression affects about a quarter of the population at some point in their life. It can affect anyone at any time – there's not always a clear trigger.
The good news is that therapy and treatment can help you feel better and more in control of your mood.
Depression can be difficult to spot because the symptoms vary from person to person. Depression may look different for everybody – it’s unique to you.
Online therapy can be an effective way to treat depression.
At Livi Mental Health, our therapists specialise in a form of online therapy called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
By teaching you practical ways to improve your state of mind, CBT helps to change how you think and behave. CBT therapists use evidence-based techniques to help reframe negative thoughts and break patterns of behaviour.
The treatment we offer depends on what you need – and what you want, of course. After discussing how you feel, your therapist will design a treatment plan to suit you.
