The 3 main reasons why people commit suicide

Depression

Depression is such a debilitating condition that people suffering from it believe that there will never be an end, that they will never escape it. Their very existence becomes so painful there seems no other option than to end their life. Depression distorts people’s thoughts and they begin to believe that the world would be better off without them and that they are merely a burden to others.

They’re impulsive

Despite people often using drugs and alcohol to try and lighten their mood, they are actually a depressant. People can become very maudlin after using drugs and alcohol and impulsively attempt to end their lives. If the attempt fails, the remorse they feel the next day is absolutely genuine. The substance abuse is the problem here, although it often goes hand in hand with depression.

They don’t know how to get help

Whilst not actively wanting to end their lives, people sometimes just don’t know how to ask for help. This group will frequently choose methods that will purposely fail. If they succeed in their suicide attempt it’s usually a mistake and something has gone wrong with their plan.
The devastation that suicide leaves in the lives of the people left behind is often long lived when fuelled by anger, frustration and guilt. It helps to deal with the tragedy by understanding the motives behind the suicide. This understanding can help to find ways to relinquish their guilt, anger and frustration and enable them to move forwards. Don’t allow the negative feelings left after suicide to be the emotions that you remember in connection with the person you have lost.

It’s great to have a leading psychologist such as Wendy in the Manchester area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.

Wendy is great at what she does; she made me feel at ease immediately and really helped me work through some issues.

It’s funny but from the minute I met her I felt so relaxed and she was so easy to talk to. Thank you!

Wendy isn’t only really good at what she does, she’s also really easy to talk to.

I want to thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through what must have been the most difficult time of my life.

I was told she was the best and they were right.

Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.

I came to Wendy with a set of problems I have never been able to fully explain to anyone, which included grief, many family issues and alcohol problems. Wendy truly has an active listening style and absorbs everything you are saying, whilst not making you feel analysed, it is an incredible skill. She astounded me at how she got to the crux of the issues so fast. So much so that we both agreed I only needed one session with her, obviously this may not be the case with everyone but I would confidently recommend her to anyone, regardless of your problems. There was no awkwardness or even clock watching, she is wonderful at what she does, take the plunge and make an appointment, you will not regret it. Life is a direction not a destination and she will get you on the path again.
