 Depression counselling.

If you are experiencing depression, you may feel unhappy, or feel low, that everything you do is a struggle, and perhaps not worth the effort. Often people experiencing depression feel hopeless about the future and unable to see any positives in life. You may feel apathetic, feel flat and unable to participate in activities you used to enjoy.

At its worst, depression can lead to such feelings of helplessness and lack of self worth that people may give up the will to live, or begin to consider suicide. You may experience sleep problems too.

Dear online counselor,

I have been depressed since the breakup of my relationship with my boyfriend. My life feels empty and worthless, i don’t think i want my BF back but i can’t seem to find a new life without him.

I feel that I need someone around me and need to be in a relationship. Can i book a session with you to get some practical advice on how to start again?

Online depression counselling would be great as I have a busy work schedule and the convenience of online counselling would be very useful.


Hello Diane,

Thank you for your email. It sounds like you were in a relationship with your boyfriend and you now experience grief and loss, it takes time to grieve when we lose someone close, this can sometimes result in Depression.

When a long term relationship ends it can be devastating and leave us feeling lost. Your life may well feel empty, but it is certainly not worthless. I would be very pleased to help you with finding a way forward and helping you to create a more fulfilling and happier life.

It sounds like some work on your relationship with your self could be useful and have a lasting influence on your perceived need to have someone in your life. If we can help you feel more comfortable alone, then there will be less pressure on any future relationships.

Have you tried light therapy?

Best wishes Paul, online counsellor (therapist) and online life coach.

Kind words from recent clients

“I had always had many negative thoughts that brought me down, made me feel depressed, anxious, discouraged, sad and many more negative feelings. And that made my life miserable; I avoided socializing, studying, working in a pressured environment.

But then, Paul introduced a thought management tool to me; A thought reframing tool. It helps me recognize my own negative thoughts clearly, and then I reframe them into a positive one.

With the help of this tool, I kept journaling for 3 weeks and had counselling session with Paul once/week to review my journals and make sense of them. My cognitive behavior just changed, it has changed my feelings to positive ones and then my behaviors start to change for the better.

I don’t feel like a loser and escape the reality by sleeping too much anymore. I have good attitudes toward life, and I start doing things that I once thought were impossible for me. I focus better, I have enthusiasm to learn new things and I don’t over think and I don’t avoid making mistakes anymore. I am living my life!

Thank you, Paul, for introducing this tool to me and guiding me toward a happier and brighter future.

If anyone has been feeling bad and unhappy without knowing why, you might have negative thoughts toward yourself and your life. I highly recommend Paul and his tried and tested tools to help live a better and happier life!”
