Depression counselling Tauranga
Depression is a mood disorder that causes loss of love for life. One of the strongest features of depression is the appearance of emotional flatness. This means that the experience of feelings partially or completely disappears.
This means no longer experiencing pleasure, joy, contentedness, happiness or even sadness anymore. With the absence of these feelings, the meaning of life also disappears.
Perhaps you are already suffering from depression, or maybe you are feeling a little depressed some of the time. In any case, you know that you want to take action to prevent feeling worse and take steps to get your life back on track.
