I have worked as a counsellor for the past 15+ years working with clients struggling from depression and anxiety. Depression can stem from many sources and I establish whether the depression is situational or systemic. What this means is that depression that is situational is that a life event or situation is causing difficulty in the person's life such as depression resulting from grief and/or loss. When depression is systemic, there is usually a long term experience of depression in one's life and has been either on-going since childhood or early adulthood or intermittently since then. This usually indicates that there is unprocessed trauma in a person's background.

Depression can be all-consuming and life can seem overwhelming, difficult and hopeless at times. Despite the feeling of hopelessness, there is a reason to hope. Depression is manageable and something my clients can and do overcome. Because depression is unique to each person, I tailor my counselling style and approach to what works best for you. I also offer hypnotherapy because of the success it has in treating depression. Part of this process will involve being open to changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours. With your willingness and my guidance and support, you can identify what contributes to your depression, how to catch yourself from regressing and identify how to maintain progress

"Depression" in today's society encompasses a very broad range of experiences - everything from a prolonged sadness to feeling such despair that life no longer feels worth living. It not only affects your mood but can also impact one's physical health, relationships and work. I accompany those struggling with depression to access their natural ability to re-wire their brain towards greater health. Since each person I work with is unique, I tailor my approach to each individual depending on the root cause. This may include things such as: processing past events with EMDR or managing current stressors with mindfulness practices or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

The word "depression" has become widespread and has come to mean very different things to many different people. Generally it entails deep sadness, lack of energy, motivation and interest in things, and sometimes it is described simply as a big, black cloud hanging over one's head all day long. Whatever the individual experience of it, depression requires learning ways to manage it to make it feel less overwhelming, as well as exploration to gain an understanding of what may be contributing to it. These endeavours are done through ways that fit with your needs and the essence of who you are.

When we become deeply unhappy or depressed, an avalanche of feelings, thoughts, physical sensations and behaviours come in to play. The huge emotional upheaval that can come from experiencing loss, separation, rejection or defeat, is normal and it is a shared experience by most people. However, if this distress goes on for too long it can start to permeate every aspect of our lives, taking over and dragging us down with it. Depression affects mind, body and spirit. As your therapist, think of me as your lifeline. Through Mindfulness-based strategies along with other evidence-based therapeutic interventions, depression can be overcome and I can help you on that journey back to yourself.

I believe depression can be treated through carefully examining beliefs we have about ourselves that no longer serve us. For example, if we learned at a young age that we were unloveable, we may have looked for ways throughout our life to prove that as truth When we start to identify self defeating beliefs and challenge them it's remarkable the changes we can experience in our overall depressive symptoms and overall sense of well being.
