OUR SERVICES AT OUR BRUSSELS PRACTICE
Most people that have depression may not realise that it is a mental health condition that is causing the sadness, helplessness or hopelessness that they are feeling. For a great many people depression has been something that they have lived with for years, and it is has left them isolated, without support, and often believing that they are worthless.
By understanding that depression is not just an attitude or part of your personality but an imbalance in the brain’s chemistry that can be corrected, you have hope and options to become happier, more satisfied and gain back your self-worth and self-confidence.

These symptoms do not all have to present for a diagnosis of depression. The more of these signs that are present the more essential it is to see your doctor or therapists to start treatment.
Treatment Options for Depression
Usually, depression is most effectively treated with medications and psychotherapy. The antidepressant medications are used to balance the chemicals in the brain, specifically serotonin, which is essential in overall mental health and well-being. However, not all people with depression need to use antidepressants and, in some research, psychotherapy alone is as effective in treatment.
There are several different types of therapy that can be used in the treatment of depression. Philippe Jacquet draws from different therapeutic treatment modalities to provide a holistic, integrated approach to the treatment of the individual.
Through treatment the goal will for the client, working with the therapist, to explore the thoughts, beliefs and convictions that are creating the negative self-image. In addition Mr. Jacquet will work one-on-one to build effective coping strategies to reduce stress, learn a new perspective, and see how incorrect thoughts have caused unhealthy behaviour to create new, healthier and more positive options.
