Studies indicate that depression occurs twice as often in women as in men, according to the American Psychological Association.

●  at least four additional symptoms of depression (see below)

Not everyone who is depressed experiences every symptom. Some people experience a few symptoms, some many. Severity of symptoms can also vary from one person to another. You may also review and print out "Depression Work Sheet."

●  depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day

●  
persistent stress

Are there different levels of depression?

Depression is measured along a continuum ranging from mild to moderate to severe.

Top of Page

How is depression treated?

There are varieties of antidepressant medications and psychotherapies that can be used to treat depressive disorders.

Recent research reviews indicate that psychotherapy is at least as effective as anti-depressant medications for mild to severe depression and is more effective in helping to avoid relapses.

Life Coaching & Alternative/Holistic  Counseling can usually offer even more dramatic and accelerated success toward recovery when combined with one or more of the powerful natural approaches to treating depression, such as:

●  amino acids
●  dietary supplements
●  herbs
●  nutrition
●  vitamins and minerals
●  fish oil
●  homeopathy
●  Bach Flower remedies
●  acupuncture
●  biofeedback
●  exercise
●  volunteer work
●  body work
●  journaling
●  more . . . .

Can people with depression help themselves?

When in combination with professional treatment, self-help can make a difference with your day-to-day feelings and progress.

●  Avoid difficult tasks or responsibilities.
●  Break large tasks into small ones.
●  Don’t expect too much from yourself too soon.
●  Try to be around others; it’s usually better than being alone.
●  Do activities that make you feel better.
●  Keep a journal. This is one of the most effective self-help techniques you can do.
●  Become a volunteer. This is another effective self-help technique that can really make a difference. 
●  Exercise.
●  Get out; participate in religious or social activities.
●  Postpone making major life decisions, if possible.
●  Recognize that feeling better takes time.

DID YOU KNOW...

85% of anxiety sufferers also struggle with depression?


Testimonial

When I began working with Dianne, I was depressed, unorganized, and unmotivated.

Even though I made good money in the construction business, I could not seem to manage it worth a darn.

I was always scrambling to meet payroll and other bills. There was no real joy in my life.

Dianne not only helped me clear out some old and painful issues that had been keeping me stuck in depression, she got me back on track with setting new goals.

We set a goal and a date for coming up with a $25,000 down payment so I could buy a new home to live in that was located in a great residential area.

It worked and happened right on schedule!

I built a couple of houses, a liquor store, three garages, and the bridge project finally came through.

But that is nothing next to the aerospace company that I am now part of. I was voted president at the last meeting.

It is really exciting, and I am now able to hold my own in a room full of rocket scientists.

We have some very ambitious and exciting projects involving satellites in the works! –S.F. read more
