About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Learn more about therapists who can help with Depression

What is depression?

Depression is a common mental health disorder characterised by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and disinterest in activities once enjoyed. It can also manifest physically, causing changes in appetite, sleep patterns, and energy levels. Depression can vary in severity, from mild to severe, and may be triggered by various factors, including genetic predisposition, life events, or chemical imbalances in the brain. Recognising depression involves understanding its symptoms and seeking support from healthcare professionals to effectively manage the condition.

 

Effective treatment for depression

Thankfully, depression is highly treatable, and several interventions can help individuals recover and improve their well-being. Evidence-based treatments include psychotherapy, medication, lifestyle modifications, and self-care practices. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a particularly effective form of therapy for depression, helping individuals identify and challenge negative thought patterns and behaviours. Antidepressant medications, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), may also be prescribed by healthcare providers. Additionally, engaging in regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy diet, and practising stress-reduction techniques like mindfulness meditation can complement traditional treatments, promoting overall mental wellness.

 

Find the right therapist on It’s Complicated

It may take some exploration and open communication with potential therapists to discover the approach and therapist that aligns best with your needs and preferences. Trusting your instincts and being patient with yourself throughout this process can help alleviate some of the overwhelm and lead to a smoother therapeutic journey. If you are interested in therapy to assist you in improving your life quality, It's Complicated operates in nearly 100 languages, offering both online and in-person sessions. With a diverse network of over 1,500 mental health professionals spanning 80+ countries, you can easily connect with accredited psychologists who can support you in managing depression.
