Depression effects people in different ways and can have a range of emotional and physical symptoms. For some, it might be a period of low mood and tearfulness, whilst for others it can become a constant struggle to get up from bed every day and gather the strength to complete the usual daily chores.

What’s important is that depression can be treated, and the sooner you recognize the symptoms, the sooner you can get the support and care to recover.

“From start to finish, it taught me so much about myself.”

“I can’t believe how much progress I’ve made in a short time.”


“After many years of therapy, you are the first person who gets me.”



Our expert team treat depression daily from our online clinics and in our depression therapy clinic in Guildford, Surrey.

A lot of people who are feeling depressed wait before asking for professional help due to feeling embarrassed, anxious or apprehensive. There is a fear of not being taken seriously because the symptoms are mild, and the deep-rooted idea that getting help and advice is a sign of weakness.

This could not be further from the truth and we know that it takes courage and strength to accept that something is wrong and work on feeling better. It’s usually a simpler and shorter process to treat depression while it’s still mild, before it progresses and begins affecting your life on a day-to-day basis.

If you notice any of these symptoms ask for help immediately:

  • you are missing important life events because you can’t get out of bed
  • you are turning to alcohol and drugs for relief from your symptoms
  • you are preoccupied with suicidal thoughts, thoughts of self-harm and/or mutilation
Meet our team


At Dr Jo Gee & Associates you will get support tailored to your needs for efficient and quick symptom relief. We offer psychotherapy for depression online and CBT for depression in Guildford Surrey.

Our handpicked team of professionals will work with you to get the best outcome and support you on your recovery.

One of our key approaches to treating depression is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Some of the benefits of CBT are as follows:

  • it is short-term, but can have long-lasting positive effects
  • it is effective in replacing negative thought patterns with more positive ones
  • it has a structured approach
  • it is effective both by itself and combined with other treatments

However, we offer a range of approaches mapped to our clients’ needs and we carefully consider the best solution for you in the initial assessment.
