Depression

"Our bodies are magnificent and feeling depressed is our bodies communication method telling us that something needs to change." — Dr. McDowall
Depression or feelings of prolonged sadness and low mood are all more prevalent than one might think. Various life situations, such as the end of a relationship or marriage, the loss of a loved one, losing your job, financial difficulties or health-related problems, are all capable of triggering depression or depressive symptoms. You might be feeling like it is hard to even get out of bed and do anything some days. You may have been feeling this way for a long time, and feel like giving up or these might be new feelings you aren’t used to dealing with. Remember, it is natural to feel sad, tired, discouraged and lonely when life throws you a curveball. The good news is that with guided support, you can overcome the hopelessness and the heaviness of depression.  

How McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare can help you.

At McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare, we take pride in providing our clients with a warm, confidential and safe environment so you will feel open to discuss whatever is on your mind. Making you feel comfortable each and every time you visit is very important to us.

Some stress at work is normal, but if you find yourself under a lot of pressure and this negatively affects other areas of your life such as your social, personal, and physical domains, then you might benefit from our counselling services.

We provide a confidential, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment where you can speak to one of our therapists about the issues you are experiencing. We will help you implement some coping strategies or improve your existing ones in order to improve your well-being, not simply during your work day but throughout the long-term. We look forward to working with you through the pressures you are facing and help strengthen your resilience to external and internal contributors of stress.
