We help people with low mood and/or clinical depression. Depression is not feeling fed up or unhappy for a few days. When you are feeling depressed you can feel unhappy for weeks or months and this can show itself by feeling tearful, anxious, loss of interest in things you used to enjoy and can affect appetite, libido and close relationships. The NHS estimates that one in ten people of any gender or age will suffer depression at some point in their lives and that 4% of children living in the UK aged from four to sixteen also experience depression or anxiety.

Self esteem

We also work closely with people with low self esteem. If you have ever thought of yourself as (for example) weak, ugly, stupid, not good enough, worthless, inferior to other people, unlovable, or a failure then you might have a problem with self-esteem. People with low self-esteem can have a negative opinion of themselves and judge themselves negatively as a person. Sometime these beliefs are deep seated and can arise from early childhood experiences when our emotional needs were not met. However, those with previously good self-esteem can also be affected as an adult when they encounter negative experiences later in life.


Anxiety and Worry

At Connected Counselling Cardiff we give you the space to talk about the emotional states that we can all get stuck in. Anxiety and worry are closely connected. We get anxious when we feel threatened in any way which can then make us fearful. Fear is an instinct that can protect us from dangerous situations i.e. we can run away or physically defend ourselves, so it is a natural human instinct. When we worry about the “what ifs”? and there is no immediate threatening situation, then anxiety can arise and become a problem. Worrying can cause us to be stuck in negative thinking where we can have repetitive negative thoughts about the present and the future. This then causes anxiety and can affect work, relationships, friendships, study, and finances; amongst others.
