Depression and Anxiety


Anxiety makes us feel fearful. It can cause us to not want to do things or it can cause to over check and over think things. Anxiety responds really well to psychological treatment. Depression on the other hand makes us feel low, sad and sometimes, nothing at all – just heavy and tired.

Whether you are feeling a bit low and can’t shake it off, or struggling with very dark thoughts and feelings of hopelessness; the fact that you have searched this resource is a big first step and you should feel some solace in that.
