The term depression is widely used nowadays. In India it is estimated that 3 of every 100 residents in urban area are suffering from depression and about 1 in 5 people needs counseling. 36% Indians are likely to suffer from major depression at some point of their life. So it is evident that it’s a big problem for us but don’t worry; leading psychologist of Kolkata Dr. A d Mahapatra is here to tell you different sides of depression, causes, and ways to cope up with it. Depression cans be situational or bio-chemical. Situation depression is related to some specific situation, event, and people but there is no specific reason for bio-chemical depression. Situation depression can be treated by counseling or therapy but sometimes one needs medicine for bio chemical depression. Our focus is to solve the problem by without medicinal approach.
Depression causes and symptoms:-
There are various different reasons behind depression but if we want to point out the root cause of depression it will be the imbalance in the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers in the brain by which nerve cells communicate with each other). The main three neurotransmitters that keep a brain happy are Serotonin, Nor epinephrine, and Dopamine. Imbalance in any of these hormones will be the trigger point of depression.
Recent studies also tell that sometimes causes of depression may be genetic. If anyone finds any five signs given bellow, through 2 to 3 weeks, it can be said that he/she is in depression.
Other diseases/health issues due to depression:-
Depression is linked to other mental as well as physical diseases. Mental illness such as phobia, anxiety disorder, panic disorder, OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder and eating disorder can be developed from depression. Other diseases such as, coronary artery disease, Cardin vascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, kidney disease, Parkinson’s disease can be developed from depression. Other than this obesity, head ache, fatigue, low sex drive, insomnia these are some other health issues that occur due to depression.

Importance of counselling in depression:-
Depression can be totally cured by counselling and therapy. A psychologist will understand the root cause of the depression and will treat it in his/her own way. Only a psychologist can confirm are you at all depressed or sad. Feeling sad and depressed are two different things. Sometimes just by counseling clients feel better, if not we provide therapy. We provide psychotherapy, light and sound therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy to treat depression.
We are here to guide you to overcome depression without medicine:-
Like medicine therapy also works in its own way. Therapy helps a person to identify the actual reason of depression and then how to react for that reason or how to destroy that reason by using the positive sides of life. Therapy can provide life-changing habits, thoughts and behaviors to a person. CBT or cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the very useful and clinically proven therapies. Therapist will help the person to rethink that the causes behind depression are at all make sense or some of those are false, just driven by his/her negative thoughts. This step by step process is followed by replacing those thoughts by positive steps, tasks and goals. Our second therapy is Light and Sound therapy. Dr. Ad Mahapatra is specialized in this therapy. Some clinically proven sound having different frequency is used in this therapy under his supervision. After 3 or 4 sittings person starts to feel the difference.
