Mood Disorders

Mood Disorders

Mood Disorders encompass a group of mental health conditions that primarily impact a person's emotional state and overall mood. Common mood disorders include major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and persistent depressive disorder.

Major depressive disorder, often simply referred to as depression, is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of self-worth. It can result in a variety of physical symptoms, including fatigue, changes in appetite, and sleep disturbances, and can interfere with an individual's ability to function in daily life.

Bipolar disorder, sometimes known as manic depression, is marked by fluctuations in mood and energy levels, with periods of mania or hypomania (elevated mood) alternating with periods of depression.

Persistent depressive disorder, also called dysthymia, is a long-lasting condition characterized by a constant low, downhearted mood that lasts for at least two years.

Treatment for mood disorders can involve a combination of methods, including therapy, medication, and lifestyle adjustments. Therapy, particularly cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), can help individuals with mood disorders identify and challenge negative thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their mood disturbances. Medications, such as antidepressants, can also be effective in managing mood disorders.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
