Psychotherapy


Taking the step to change is a powerful and yet scary decision. Feel proud of yourself, as today you are one step closer to a new you. You will feel empowered and challenged to discover ways in which to take control over your life.

What NOT to say to someone who is depressed

Yes there are things to say and things you should absolutely avoid saying to someone who is depressed. In fact, by saying the wrong things you can potentially jeopardize their road to recovery.
