Redundancy and Depression

Regaining Your Oomph: recovering from redundancy and depression


Redundancy and depression: there’s a double whammy if there ever was one. If you’re feeling depressed already, redundancy might well  make things worse. Even if you’ve never been depressed in your life, redundancy could be the thing that triggers it.

Of course, the people that experience redundancy and depression will be in the minority. Nevertheless, that will still be sizeable minority and that’s what prompted us to invite Caroline to an interview. Caroline Carr is a combination of hypnotherapist, coach, guide, healer, and author. Here, we tackle the often overlooked subject of redundancy and depression. Caroline talks about how to spot whether you are feeling depression or the perfectly natural side-effects of the shock of redundancy. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell as some kind of sadness or depression is a natural part of the grief cycle.

She then moves onto sharing  easy to implement ways we can change our energy. Doing this can help us feel better and more empowered whatever our mental state. This is what Caroline calls “finding your oomph.”

This video interview is perfect for anyone who may feel stuck in feelings of sadness after redundancy (or at any time). Or, indeed, those supporting someone who may be feeling like this.
