Depression – What is it?

Depression is a condition characterised by prolonged feelings of sadness or despondency that interfere with the sufferer’s everyday life. It often includes feelings of hopelessness and low self-worth. A person with depression can find it difficult to maintain an interest, whether it’s in what’s going on around them or life in general.

Conditions that develop as a result of depression can include an inability to maintain relationships, withdrawal from social occasions or an increase in harmful coping strategies. When the repercussions of depression begin to escalate, sufferers can become even more depressed and unable to see a way out of their situation. Trying to stop a painful emotion at best only achieves a temporary fix, so at Palladium Private, we show you simple ways to halt, alter and even reverse this pattern, and to adopt new behaviours and engage in new ways of thinking that can lead to lasting change. The Palladium Private Program is supported by Rational Emotional Behaviour Therapy (REBT), CBT, ACT and is underpinned by Mindfulness Training. Our approach is accompanied by nutritious meals cooked by our chefs and attention to your whole health by our personal trainers, yoga teachers, and spa and massage therapists. So if you or someone you know needs help with depression, we invite you to speak with one of our admissions consultants about tailoring a program best suited for your needs.
