No two people experience depression in exactly the same way and so dealing with it also needs an individual approach. Rather than viewing depression as something wrong with the person experiencing it, the client and I listen to what it might have to say to them. Though understandably, nobody likes depression, and it can be managed with tools such as Cognitive Behavioural therapy and mindfulness, etc., it can also be engaged through other approaches that allow its importance and meaning (and what it is calling for) is revealed. This can bring greater richness, wisdom, and appreciation for life.

Depression is complicated. It is a mental state of a person but a lot of times, clients do not have a clear grasp of its cause. The very present state of mind and functioning should be explored to determine the severity of the symptom first before starting to peeling each layer of the skin off an onion as a metaphor in order to explore possible reasons to the cause.Exploration via art would cover from the client's childhood to present stage in order to find any connecting clues to the cause of the depression. Since art is visual, the search itself would resemble that in a story which makes it easier for client to understand and digest as sequences can make more sense.

Sally Halliday, Registered Clinical Counsellor

Suite 616-402 W. Pender Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 1T6

Feeling sad, low or in a bad mood is a normal part of being human. Depression is different; it can hold us back from our lives, suck our energy, and have us thinking negatively about ourselves and the world. And, depression is treatable. My job is to create the support you need to clarify the issues and situations that trigger depression, so that you can identify and act on strategies to interrupt the dark times, to move forward, and be proactive in the future. While it's not always possible to pinpoint the cause, we can work effectively with what we do know: about thoughts, emotions and actions that can either hold us back or be allies.

Suzanne Watts, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

If you're tired of having depression suck the life right out of you, seeking counselling can be the first step towards feeling better. I can help you work with your emotions, thoughts, belief systems, and behaviours in order to exchange negative patterns for healthier ones. We can also look at your relationship with yourself, your relationships with others, your environment, your work and your play in order to see how they are affecting your enjoyment of life. If you are also a highly sensitive person (HSP), we can identify how the trait affects you and how it might contribute to your depression.

Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t beat it through sheer willpower, but you do have some control—even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. Recovering from depression requires action. But taking action when you’re depressed is hard. In fact, just thinking about the things you should do to feel better, like going for a walk or spending time with friends, can be exhausting. Getting the support you need plays a big role in lifting the fog of depression and keeping it away.
