Looking for Depression Therapists in Winnipeg?

How Does Depression Start?
Most Depression can be traced back to past negative experiences. It could be negative thoughts or feelings you had about yourself. Maybe you were one of the last kids picked a the team in gym class. We don’t normally see that as negative unless we hear others making fun of us. We don’t normally see ourselves in a negative way without first being told that from someone else.
If we have negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves, it’s usually because we learned to see ourselves that way—from someone else. Often the cause of the depression is from a relationship that was hurtful, abusive or neglectful and this cause many long-lasting problems, especially when you were younger. So we didn’t choose to see ourselves in that negative way—we were being told that’s who we are. And we were unsuspecting. We believed it. Therapy can teach you how to identify those early negative thoughts that feed depression and how to let them go.
