Our approach to assisting clients with depression is unique in that it takes the form of a number of approaches to counselling combined. This is important because not every individual responds to all elements of a single approach in the same manner. To be most effective as a counsellor in Calgary, we assess clients needs and together come up with an approach that will yield the most positive counselling outcome, using elements from many different approaches to therapy combined.

Only one in three people struggling with major depression gets the treatment they need – do not be part of the statistics of those who are not treated. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can help you decide on the correct pharmacological intervention that is right for you, and come alongside you in suggesting the best evidence-based therapeutic approach. If you are yo-yoing on and off antidepressants and tranquilizers, you are probably reducing your chances of recovery by doing damage to your brain. By the fifth or sixth major depressive episode, your recovery chances have been compromised and the relapse rate has gone up – effective treatment is available now!

What do you think 'depression' is? A symptom or a diagnosis? Many clients I meet have struggled to believe that change was possible. Depression can fade the colors in life and bring us into a state of hopelessness. Its tough to get motivated and believe again. Kathryn can empower you again to take your life back, ignite the flame that may seem to have been snuffed out. She will support you to set goals that YOU are comfortable with, and she will encourage you each week to measure your success based on YOUR progress.

Depression can be deeply painful, robbing you of energy, motivation, and hope. It creates a negative view of life, your self, and your future. It typically disrupts sleep patterns, appetite, emotions, and your thinking ability. I use the clinical practice of cognitive behavioural therapy to help people regain healthy control over their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and reclaim a sense of influence over their life style and life situation's. Coaching you to refocus, set small daily goals, celebrate your successes, and learn new behavioral and thinking skills can take time but the good news is that once you have acquired these skills you have them for life.

Everyone feels “down”, gloomy, discouraged, or sad from time to time. For some people, however, this “low” or depressed mood persists. When symptoms last for two weeks or more, and are so severe that they interfere with daily functioning, it is called depression. While clinical depression usually occurs in adulthood, it can also affect children, adolescents, and seniors, but it is more difficult to recognize in these groups. Factors such as low self-esteem and self-defeating or distorted thinking styles are connected with depression, otherwise known as a mood disorder. Events or circumstances in early childhood may also increase the likelihood of depression in adulthood. There is good new....

Dr. Val used to facilitate groups of those who had engaged in family violence, both men and women. Up front, number one is caring acceptance of the perpetrator, regardless of what he/she has done. A non-judgmental attitude is engendered based on Val's understanding that we are all children of God, and that we've all got a negative and a positive side, and those two sides are in constant battle. Helping people recognize their physiological signs of anger and curbing them before the explosion, is an important part of Dr. Val's training. Learning emotional regulation is a cornerstone of her approach.

Depression is the most common mood disorder in the world. But it is also one of the most treatable. There have been well over 100,000 clinical studies on depression, so a lot has been learned, and it has become clear what the best treatment approaches are. Unfortunately, only one in four depressed people will seek psychological services. This is truly sad since cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal psychology can make a lasting difference in breaking your unique pattern of depression. Why not get started today on a brighter future?

Sadness is not the problem - it is an inherent and unavoidable part of being alive. Rather it is the harshly negative views of ourselves that get switched on by unhappy moods that take hold of us. These moods can turn normal sadness into a web of preoccupation that spiral us into deep feelings of depression. Research has shown that when we are depressed or unhappy the effect of that mood on our body can bias the way we evaluate and interpret things around us without our being even the slightest bit aware that this is happening. It becomes a spiral downwards. It can feel overwhelming and impossible to break out of. Please contact me if you are wanting to take a new approach to your depressive feelings and experience the joy of being able to switch...(view profile to read more)

Depression is on the rise in not only Canada but around the world. There a variety of reasons why this is - I have come to believe its the rise of a society that is busy and not taking care of themselves emotionally and physically. We are focused on the future and not enough on the present. Counselling allows a person to slow down and be in the present. People can then receive care and support as they walk through their feelings, thoughts and stories of their life.
