We can support you with the following types of depression:

Counselling for Major Depressive Disorder

Our caring practitioners create a safe atmosphere in which you can examine and navigate the issues connected with MDD. Major Depressive Disorder, commonly known as clinical depression, is a common disorder that affects many people in Ireland. Our therapists at Blanchardstown Therapy Centre address depression in various ways. We seek to help you work with negative thought patterns, strengthen interpersonal connections, and create effective coping mechanisms by using evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Techniques.

In addition to these therapeutic approaches, our skilled counselors may use mindfulness-based therapies, psychodynamic therapy, and self-care measures. These complementing strategies are intended to increase self-awareness, improve emotional regulation, and nurture resilience, allowing individuals to manage their symptoms more effectively and improve their overall well-being.

It is critical to note that counseling and psychotherapy may not be enough to provide comprehensive MDD treatment. Other forms of treatment, such as medication administered by a psychiatrist or primary care physician, can help improve outcomes. A comprehensive approach to MDD can provide the most effective treatment for persons attempting to overcome this illness by treating the biological, psychological, and social elements of the disorder.

Persistent Depressive Disorder (PDD)

Persistent Depressive Disorder, also known as dysthymia, is a type of chronic depression that can have a major influence on an individual’s quality of life. It is believed that around 2% of the Irish population suffers with PDD. Those suffering from this ailment have particular obstacles that, if untreated, can last for extended periods of time.

Our therapists at Blanchardstown Therapy Centre fully grasp the impact of PDD on persons in often difficult life circumstances and social environments. We are committed to offering personalized counselling services that are targeted to the individual needs of those suffering from PDD. Our trained counselors will assist you through the complexity of this chronic ailment with significant knowledge and competence. Please note, depending on the severity of the condition, medication delivered by a psychiatrist or primary care physician may be required.

Therapy for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that occurs only during certain seasons, most notably the winter months in Ireland. The impact of weather on mental health, particularly for those prone to SAD, should not be ignored. Reduced sunshine exposure during the winter alters our body’s internal clock, resulting in serotonin imbalances that can affect mood and overall well-being. At Blanchardstown Therapy Centre we realize the deep impact of seasonal changes on mental well-being at and provide specific therapy treatments to manage SAD. Our counsellors can work with you to investigate the benefits of light treatment, devise effective coping techniques, and implement lifestyle modifications that reduce the impact of SAD. Our goal is to assist you in regaining a sense of harmony and well-being.
