Depression is a common psychological disorder - anyone can become depressed. It is more than just feeling unhappy, bored or fed up. If feelings don’t go away quickly, or they start affecting your everyday life, it may be time to seek professional help.


According to research, approximately one in four people in the UK will suffer from a mental health problem at any one time throughout the year – with depression being one of the most common types.

With the right support and treatment, such as counselling and hypnotherapy, people can overcome the common mental health condition.
