Navigating depression; a path to healing and hope

Depression is a complex and challenging mental health condition that affects millions of individuals across the UK. If you're struggling with depression, know that you're not alone, and help is available.

Understanding Depression

Depression is more than just feeling sad or down. It is pervasive and debilitating and it's symptoms can impact every aspect of your life, including your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and physical health. Symptoms of depression may vary from person to person but can include persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, fatigue, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, difficulty concentrating, and loss of interest in activities once enjoyed.

When you're struggling with depression, one of the most overwhelming and insidious symptoms can be hopelessness. It's that relentless belief that things will never improve, that the darkness will never lift. But Loraine is here to offer you a guiding light, a beacon of hope amidst the darkness.

Lorraine will help you to understand that your experiences are symptoms of either an illness or from a natural response to an event or situation.  You are not the symptoms and they are not you, symptoms can be treated.
