Counselling for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons. SAD generally begins and ends at about the same time every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months. SAD tends to sap your energy and making you feel irritable and moody.

SAD is generally caused by a lack of natural light during the winter months. If you experience SAD, you might notice that you feel a persistent low mood and don’t enjoy activities that you usually find enjoyable. SAD is not the same as clinical depression, although the two are related.

SAD vs Depression – What’s the Difference?

The primary difference between SAD and depression is that people who suffer from SAD often experience normal mental health throughout the year but notice that they suffer depressive symptoms as the seasons change, usually when the days become shorter, and the weather gets colder.

If you’re struggling to find your motivation, and you’re worried that you might not ever get it back, one of the best thing you can do is seek help. I can help you work through your SAD to create a happier, healthier, and more meaningful life.

Counselling for SAD can help you identify the triggers and thoughts that may be causing your low mood. Therapy helps you understand and managing underlying emotions while strengthening your resilience to overcome what may lay ahead.

Counselling for SAD can you learn ways to live free of those old patterns and issues that make the winter months difficult for you.

I use an integrative therapy approach that is respectful and empathic and offer a safe, judgement-free environment.
