The bane of too many lives!

Moods will always fluctuate, and in general they are feeling states which pass, as clouds pass acroos the sky. When low mood sticks around the term ‘Depression’ may be applied.
Millions of prescriptions for Anti-depressant drugs are written in the UK every year. These act as wallpaper, masking the symptoms but not dealing with the reasons.
I can help you dig out the roots so that symptoms die away. Depression can feel like a locked prison, but we can find keys and open many doors together.

The current quick-fix of ADs allows us to miss other ways of appreciating the ebb and flow of our moods. AD treatment  numbs  aspects of our humanity. Together we can look into the symptom of chronic low mood, because it is trying to tell us something

‘I am in that temper that if I were under water I would scarcely kick to come to the top’
- John Keats

‘I have deep feelings of depression – what can I do about this?’
‘Snap out of it!  Five cents, please’

- Charles M Schulz (Peanuts)
