Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD, Banbury
Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD, affects a significant percentage of the population. Often associated with Autumn and Winter seasons as light levels decrease, seasonal affective disorder can also affect some people at other times and may be diagnosed simply as a depressive state; many doctors still refuse to accept it as a condition in its own right and prescribe anti-depressants.
Alternative treatments include "light boxes" and "natural daylight lamps" which are available on the market and which have helped many people and various homeopathic treatments are favoured by some. In trials it has been shown that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, CBT, can also help and we certainly offer that as part of a blended solution here at The Paloma Centre. CBT aims to break the vicious circle of habitual negative thinking and overcome the lethargy that accompanies SAD and which in turn leads to a more positive mental attitude, outlook and lifestyle.
