It is not unusual for people who have always coped to be tipped into depression by a life event, like the loss of a family member, unemployment or illness. Even apparently good events like a promotion can induce paralysing panic or anxiety.
Many of the clients who have come to me in my practice are people who have soldiered on through life. They often have a diagnosis of a depression or anxiety which is now persistently affecting their capacity for enjoyment; accomplishment in work or other spheres; and personal relationships.
Psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy is a confidential relationship.I work to help the client find the resources that will facilitate a return to what has been described as “the capacity to love and work again.”
