Starting Depression counseling

What can counseling do for those who suffer with depression?

Depression counseling can help those with major depression, minor depression, postpartum depression, persistent depressive disorder, and more. The providers at Thriveworks in Bedford, NH will develop a unique treatment plan based on your specific experience, needs, and goals.

Is it worth going to therapy for depression?

It is absolutely worth going to therapy for depression — depression counseling helps people better manage their symptoms and get back to living happier lives again.

How does depression counseling work?

Depression counseling works by helping people pinpoint life problems, distorted thought patterns, and other causes of their depression, then process and work through them in order to mitigate the negative effects those factors have on their lives.

Signs of depression

Common signs of depression include:

  • Consistent low mood
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Oversleeping or difficulty sleeping
  • Changes in diet (eating much more or less)
  • Withdrawal and isolation
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in previous hobbies or activities
  • Excessive substance use

Is depression counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks depression counseling in Bedford, NH is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How often should you attend depression therapy sessions?

Depression counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, dependent on the severity of one’s depression as well as their needs and preferences.

How much does depression counseling cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay a $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

What Causes Depression?

Depression can be caused by a variety of events and even runs in families. Depression also does not only affect a certain group of people. Sadly, there is no one specific reason that people develop depressive feelings.

Sometimes it can be obvious, like losing a job or a loved one, and other times it can come from a variety of factors like going through a breakup, being stressed about school, arguing with a loved one, and dealing with the changing seasons. This mood disorder can also come and go.

Symptoms of Depression: What Are They?

The type of depression you have and the way it affects you can be completely different than the feelings of depression your friend experiences. Depression is most often associated with feelings of sadness, but there are a number of other physical and emotional symptoms that someone can feel. Some of those symptoms are: 

  • Feelings of guilt
  • Irritability
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions 
  • Persistent fatigue 
  • Difficulty falling asleep or difficulty waking up 
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty making decisions 
  • Unexplainable aches and pains that don’t lessen with treatment 
  • Loss of interest in hobbies
  • Substance abuse
  • Decreased libido

My wife and I had an excellent experience with our amazing counselor Sam. We reached out for help with communication and intimacy issues and he helped us make real positive change in our lives. The strategies we developed with Sam have made a huge difference and we feel more connected than ever. He was always attentive, thoughtful, and accommodating to our busy schedules. The option to meet remotely or in person was a huge plus for us. We highly recommend his services.
