Over the last couple of weeks, have you lost interest in things that used to interest you? Have you found yourself getting more tired than usual? Is it tough to get motivated over things you used to enjoy? Do you find yourself crying for no reason at all? These are some of the questions used to see if you are living with depression. I will help you gain insight into why you are feeling this way, and coach you on strategies to improve your mood.

Over the course of life, one could experience depression, and lose both interest and energy to engage in daily life activities. In depression counselling, I will walk along side with you to unpack your situation and to draw out those negative feelings and thoughts relating to the situation. Together, we will explore those feelings and thoughts, and examine their validity. Moreover, I will support you and assist you to come up with some strategies to break some unhelpful behaviour patterns. You will be empowered to make positive changes, which allow you to see your situation from different perspectives. Sessions can be conducted in English or Cantonese.

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing, depression - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand your depression, yourself and how just being bad feelings is the first step towards moving past them.

In a supportive therapeutic environment I work with clients with symptoms of depression to identify thinking patterns and behaviours that contribute to their emotional struggles. I gently support these clients to increase the pleasurable activities and to challenge their depressive thinking patterns. Clients benefit from techniques allowing for better use of more balanced and helpful thinking patterns.

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

Studies have shown that psychotherapy for depression can be as effective as taking antidepressants. Depression can range from mild feelings of sadness and emptiness to all-encompassing, fully debilitating darkness. If you are experiencing feelings of depression, emptiness, hopelessness, and sadness and are finding it difficult to function in your day to day life, psychotherapy can be helpful in helping you to understand what is going on with you and help you to rise up from the depths to lead a more satisfying and meaningful life. It can also assist you in re-engaging in the process of living and in relationships with the people who are important to you.

Depression is not something to be ashamed of, nor is it a character flaw or a sign of a weak personality. No one with depression can just "snap out of it". You wouldn't ask someone to "snap out of diabetes or some other illness and you cannot expect it of a person with depression. Everyone gets sad sometimes - a brief blue mood, feelings of disappointment or loss. The great news is that up to 80% of people who receive proper treatment improve as a result. There are two principle modes of treatment for depression - Psychotherapy and medication. You’re not alone; millions of families and friends have felt exactly like you. Your one step closer to change.

Many years ago depression was called melancholia and was not considered so negatively as it is in our current "performance" focused culture. We are expected to be "up" continuously in today's busy life-styles, with work, children, relationships, and even in our playtime. The result of this sort of expectation and be debilitating and certainly can lead to long bouts of feeling out of control, unfulfilled, unmotivated and ultimately immobilized. Depression can certainly be dealt with through very effective therapeutic techniques. I work with clients to better understand the root cause of their sadness and help them to look at the possible meaning behind their depression and how to best cope.

Depression is a normal human behaviour which typically indicates the need to slow down and spend time on "refueling" yourself. Depression becomes clinical when ignored and the emotion begins to interfere with everyday functioning. In a nurturing and caring environment we begin the slow process of making that person buoyant. We set up small achievable goals decided on by the client. The goal is to teach them how to accept, listen to their emotion and take action long before clinical depression.
