Depression

Most people have had days when they’ve felt low and ‘out of sorts’ – an ‘off day’ or a ‘bad day’ at the office is quite normal – when nothing seems to go right,

They put it down to the weather and dismiss it as feeling ‘off colour’ and experiencing ‘the blues’.

For some however, how they feel can be more serious and a reflection of their life as they see it… problems with the tax man, health issues. the boss, the bank, the repayments, the neighbours, a lost love. their faultering career or just the negative circumstances of their life right now.

If these symptoms continue they may find the ‘feelings’ begin to compromise their mood and consequently affect their every day demeanour. Everything seems different and they end up seeing ‘life’ negatively. Everything seems to have a negative slant to it as failing home and work life, relationships, libido and sleep all seem to stop any positive forward thinking of any kind.

Temporary lows are one thing, but if these negative thoughts and feelings persist, then the mind and body seem to conspire together to sabotage energy levels, motivation, clear thinking and good judgement and then the bad habits begin to creep in.

The pounds become stones, the glass becomes a bottle and daytime TV becomes the highlight of the day.

It is very easy to slip into a ‘negative’ way of thinking, believing that staying at home away from people and ‘under the duvet’, seems easier than facing the outside world as they let the world ‘pass them by’.

This new way of living becomes more inviting as the feelings of sadness, fuzziness, irritability, pessimism, guilt, anger, anxiety, aches and pains and psychosomatic illnesses seem to be overwhelming and debilitating.

Yet they also seem to create an almost ‘safe’ environment to keep them safely away from contentious and demanding situations.

If untreated, these symptoms can become ‘practiced behaviour’ and can often require medication and a longer course of specialised treatment, so an early visit to a Medical Professional is essential, so you can explain your personal symptoms and lifestyle.

Your symptoms might be mild, moderate or severe and may be generally the same as countless people before you. but your life and background is unique and special, so you must be treated as an individual – because you are!

As your expectations and aspirations are different to others, Simon will initially work generically (using MindMeasuring™) in conjunction with your GP to recalibrate your ‘positives and negatives’ to help you to feel ‘normal’ again and then will tailor his work with you individually, to fulfill your potential.
