Holistic therapy for depression, grief and loss
Like all emotions, sadness is a healthy response to certain life experiences. It tells us about what is important to us, what we need, and what we care about. However, if you’re feeling chronic sadness that doesn’t lift, then a deeper process is happening that needs attention.
Depression is experienced differently from person to person. For some it may be felt in the body or expressed as anger. For some it is felt as disconnection from others, feeling numb, or a loss of direction and meaning. Other symptoms include loneliness, self-doubt, low self-esteem, and a loss of interest in activities that used to be enjoyable.
