Effective Therapy for Depression Tailored for you

At City Centre Therapy, under the expert guidance of Bod Cantwell, we specialise in depression psychotherapy that’s centred around your unique needs. Our approach combines sound, confidential advice with effective, personalised treatment plans to help you overcome depression, often referred to metaphorically as the ‘black dog’.

Understanding Depression and ‘The Black Dog’

The term ‘black dog’, famously used by Sir Winston Churchill, symbolises the periods of darkness and withdrawal associated with depression. This condition can be a standalone mental health issue or part of other Illnesses. Factors like life events, childhood experiences, and neurological nuences are common contributors to depression.

Our Approach to Depression Psychotherapy

Our treatment for depression includes a range of therapies tailored to suit your individual needs. These include:

  • – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), available in group, individual, and remote settings.

    – Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
    – Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
    – Interpersonal Therapy (IPT).

    – Somatic & Mind Body Psychotherapy.

Types of Depression

Depression is not a monolithic condition; it varies in intensity and frequency and can affect anyone, regardless of age or background. Types of depression include:

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Typically related to seasonal weather changes.

Alexitymia: The inability to feel and express positive emotions like joy or excitement
Dysthymia: Also known as persistent depressive disorder or chronic depression.
Prenatal Depression: Occurring during pregnancy.
