The Real Difference Between Low Mood And Depression

What’s the real difference between low mood and depression? As a therapist, I’m often asked this question and I see many differences between the two. Although, both conditions benefit from hypnotherapy treatment for depression.

Often someone with low mood is facing specific issues. Perhaps losing a job or a dealing with divorce. In these cases, grief and sadness may be causing low mood. As well as  low self esteem and self-motivation.

Depression is different. Very often there is no specific cause. Moreover, sufferers are often successful people  experiencing a dark, internal struggle in private. Very often symptoms are unrelated to the outside world or a person’s circumstances.

Symptoms of Depression

Low mood is symptomatic of depression. People often feel depressed for long periods without relief. Furthermore, experiencing sadness, anxiety and worry. As well as low self-esteem, frustration and anger.

It’s true to say that depression symptoms go beyond the above. Clients describe a sense of emptiness. In addition, feeling hopeless rather than sad. ‘Sadness’ implies a connection with the world which is often missing when suffering with depression.

In short depression can be a serious, long-lasting problem. Unfortunately, it may worsen without treatment.
