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.

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.

Winnie's approach to depression draws primarily from Cognitive- Behavior Therapy. If you feel that you don't have the energy to do things, or even get up in the morning, then come in for counselling. Counselling can help you to explore what is the bothering you emotionally, understand yourself better, and learn how to see or understand the issues from a better perspective

In a safe atmosphere we will examine and discuss historical and current triggers, and work to resolve their effects on your mood and situation. We dismantle self-defeating ingrained beliefs that prevent inspired living, fulfillment and action.
Depression can adversely effect one’s relationships with others including partners, friends, and family, making them feel pushed away. Conversely, depression can be triggered by relationships. In these depressions, we'll focus on relationships and improving them, regardless of the issues.
The outcome is often experienced as a clarity of mind, a sense of liberation, confidence, love, better relationsihips, productivity, and overall happiness.

The word depression really means "emotional fever." If your emotional body is running a fever, you must nurse it - take care of it. Good nursing = rapid recovery from an emotional fever or depression.
Hire me as a counselor/coach and I will help you:
1) learn the best emotional nursing skills available,
2) understanding the reasons of your depression,
3) learn to read the emotional thermometer - daily track your emotional fever,
4) develop a safe nursing home environment,
5) establish a nurse-patient relationship with yourself, and
6) build a strong support system.
I have helped 1000's of people (young & old) recover from short and long term depression. Give me a try. I can help.....

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.

The good news on this dark subject is that there is hope! Depression is very treatable and you can and will feel better with a multifaceted approach. First, you will need to discuss this with your doctor and/or psychiatrist for the possible medical aspects but then, combined with the right therapeutic techniques and a safe, supportive therapist (like me! :) you will learn to regulate your mood, find new ways of managing stress and difficult emotions, make needed changes in your life, and begin to recover from underlying pain and past trauma. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment so don't hesitate to call me!

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.
