Depression is an incredibly heavy burden to bear. In receiving counselling you can begin to work through your depression, you can learn tools for coping with it, and strategies for managing it. We will focus on the present, but explore and acknowledge where depression began and rooted in your life. You will learn how to incorporate more healthy thinking and lifestyle habits into what you are already doing to successfully manage your depression. You can begin the journey towards greater healing and empowerment.

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 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.

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.

Living with depression can be isolating and painful. One of the most important things you can do when you are in this place is to recognize that depression is more common than you think and to reach out for help. It is important to find someone safe, warm and compassionate to begin to break the cycle of isolation and shame, and foster hope in the process. I work with my clients to find healthy ways to cope with life difficulties, understand contributing factors, and identify healthy choices that can help to break free from unhelpful patterns. And in doing so, ultimately lead to experiences of empowerment and hope.

Depression is still so misunderstood in today's modern society. It is very commonly mis-diagnosed or too quick to be diagnosed by our traditional medical facilities, often leaving the person feeling worse off than they were before. I work with clients to find solutions out of their depression, to create goals for themselves, even small mini goals a day have an inspiring effect for the sufferer. I offer hope and light at the end of the tunnel, so the client can see a future for themselves.

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.

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression. I am trained in evidence based strategies that are as effective as medication, but also better for relapse prevention. Being compassionate to the self and learning to adjust negative thought and behaviour patterns are key factors in overcoming depression. I will work with you to establish small manageable goals that will not overwhelm you. I will help you to improve relationships that typically play a major role in sustaining depressive symptoms. Simply taking the time to talk and process your thoughts will help you to feel better after only 1 session.
