"Lin was very fair and did not take sides in the sessions, providing a truly unbiased discussion. She was able to challenge in a constructive manner which allowed us to answer questions honestly and get issues out that we may have left unspoken. We both felt incredibly comfortable from the beginning and she has helped us to overcome, and learn from, what we believed was an insurmountable issue."

Try one session, to see if you feel comfortable with Lin, and decide if therapy may help you.

Counselling

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests counselling for Depression.

Thoughts on Mental Health

This simple exercise can aid relaxation and concentration. Even 3 or 4 minutes can make a difference; and be really helpful in relieving stress both at home and at work. Breathing naturally and gently, bring your attention to how your belly expands a little as you breathe in and contracts again as you breathe out. (Putting the palm of your hand on your belly can help you focus.) Try to keep your attention on breathing from your belly. Notice when your attention begins to wander - as it will - and gently bring it back to your breathing again. However busy your day, it's not difficult to fit this in and can be so beneficial.

At times, redundancy and financial problems may trigger feelings of depression. Even wanted and planned redundancies involve adjusting to new circumstances, and so a loss of the old and familiar. You want to be able to pay the bills, perhaps to be a provider for others, or you may feel you have a certain role or standing in the community. However your ability to do these things can be threatened by redundancy and financial pressures. This can affect your self-confidence and may lead to depression.
