CAE Counselling Psychology


We assume the holidays are a universally happy time but the reality is that there are many people that suffer a great deal of stress and depression during this period. For many, it's a miserable time. There are many reasons for this but two stand out for potentially causing the most distress, misery and harm:

    Particularly as the year ends, people who have lost someone important may fall into melancholy and rumination over their loss. The loss can be from a loss of family member or break-up in a relationship. This is a time people assess the events of the year.

    The media innundates the public with happy scenes of friends and families having a good time together. The social sphere bustles with activity as people meet up with old friends, families come together in private and public. Even amongst people who are normally well adjusted and alone by choice, the holidays can shine a light on their isolation.

For those who may be estranged from family or have no means to be with their friends and loved ones, this period is an especially harsh reminder of their loneliness and can lead to acute depression in a period that should be filled with celebration and festivity.

If the negative emotions become severe enough, it's recommended that individuals seek professional counselling.
