Talking Therapies & Counselling for Depression

Counselling and psychotherapy are talking therapies that have been proven to help with depression recovery.

A study by Sheffield University found that 46% of patients with depression who received cognitive behavioural therapy reported at least a 50% improvement in their symptoms, compared to only 22% who were not offered the therapy.

Medication can be a useful step in alleviating the distressing symptoms but talking therapies can also have an important role in helping the sufferer deal with the impact their illness can have on their life.

It is important to find an experienced therapist to work with – you would not let someone with no experience fix your car so why would you let someone poorly qualified try and help you when you may be feeling at your lowest?

We are able to offer assessments with psychotherapists and psychologists who have years of experience of providing depression support and can help you feel better.

How can talking therapies help treat depression?

  • Help you understand your depression
  • Make sense of traumatic experiences
  • Confidential, non judgemental space to talk about your past experiences
  • Gain understanding of yourself and what makes you happy or sad
  • Improve relationships with others
  • A space to vent frustrations and talk about the things that are worrying you
  • Equip you with skills to deal with negative emotions and break unhealthy patterns
  • Develop healthy self-care techniques
  • Help end destructive behaviours such as overeating, overspending, unhealthy sex or substance abuse
  • Help deal with issues such as grief or childhood trauma

 

What types of depression counselling are available?

There are many types of talking therapies and finding the right one for you may take a few attempts and depend upon what is troubling you and how best work.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
