Depression and anxiety may be affecting your relationships. Often there are physical indicators of depression and anxietwhich may include headaches, stomach pains, restless or excessive sleep. Families may be experiencing more dysfunctions in the family system stemming from depression and anxiety in a family member.
The causes of clinical depression are unknown, but some may be related to family disposition, trauma, or difficult life circumstances such as loss of a job, death in the family or a pet, or moving to a new home or area.
Depression can look different in men and women and can be difficult for parents to accept if a child or adolescent is displaying signs of depression or trying to express their need for help. Factors to consider are emotional symptoms such as apathy, sadness, expressions of guilt or resentment, anger, or chronic fatigue.
A former mentor of Daria Mann’s referred to seasons that tend to bring out depression, suicidal thoughts, or more serious ideations of self-harm. Fall with the changing light patterns, drop in temperatures, the letdown from the holidays, and even feeling others being renewed in the spring while they are left behind, can be painful and lead to depression. Nutritional and hormonal causes may also be a factor. Metro Denver Family Therapy will encourage you in counseling to take an integrated approach examining all of the factors which may be at play.
Depression and anxiety often go together. Anxiety can be expressed in having difficulty concentrating on tasks and conversations or suddenly not having the confidence to do something that has been easy in the past. Depression and anxiety may even relate to attempting something new. Taking a risk financially or perhaps facing failure can keep even the strongest person from moving forward. If depression and anxiety are involved it just adds to the fear or lack of motivation. Alcohol, drugs, or overeating may be used as a way of coping which actually only exasperates the initial challenges.
Every case is unique and often requires individual counseling as well as family therapy to help understand and support the individual. Clients learn how to express feelings and needs and are encouraged to do activities or make changes in lifestyle which may result in more positive moods. Family therapy gives clients a base for support as well as a safety net.
Often panic attacks are mistaken for heart attacks or strokes and many people end up in the ER before realizing it is an anxiety challenge which needs to be addressed with counseling. Symptoms of panic attacks may include chills, sweating, shaking, chest or stomach pain, increase in heart rhythms without an increase in physical activity, or feelings of being closed in. Panic attacks can lead to increased fear and anxiety or having another one causing decreased social interactions or the inability to try new things.
Panic attacks can lead to hospitalization.
Hypnotherapy can help provide the support needed to overcome and address issues that may be affecting an individual. Daria Mann is a trained hypnotherapist and often depression or anxiety of all kinds can be addressed more quickly using hypnosis along with counseling to discover cause, change the internal conversations, and learn skills to allow the subconscious to help the conscious mind stay calm and find peace.
