Depression is often a persistent feeling of sadness, heaviness and loss of interest. This can sometimes look like having difficulty sleeping, oversleeping or a lethargy that gets in the way of your daily functioning. Together, we will work on understanding your thoughts and find ways to slowly re-activate and re-animate your body. We know that implementing small habits, like starting your day with a 5-minute walk, can have a huge effect on your overall mood. We will create manageable, step-by-step strategies and build small habits to help you increase your mood, make your daily experience less heavy, and slowly brighten your outlook on life.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based intervention proven to support depression. I obtained my Level II CBT Accreditation from the APT and will work with you to help you fully understand your symptoms, how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours contribute to depression. I will work with you to develop a plan to help address and minimize the depression. This type of support will benefit you as you will be able to identify ways that you can actively make changes and see the depression alleviate (changing thought patterns, emotional regulation, behavioural activation, etc).

During the pandemic, I received training from Michael Yapko on the treatment of depression. His key therapeutic messages were: 1) You can develop the skills to cope. 2) The past does not predict the future. 3) You are more than your history. 4) You are more than your symptoms. 5) You have more resources than you realize and you can learn to use them effectively. I ultimately utilize these therapeutic approaches with depression. I can help change language from "I can't" to "I can," while also looking forward to the future with a strengths-based approach.

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!

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....

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

When one is depressed the range of thoughts and feelings encompass a wide spectrum. Sadness and despair might be pervasive. One can feel as if they have fallen into a deep dark pit where everything is covered in negativity and hopelessness. In this state, one can feel inadequate, discouraged, unable or unwilling to make decisions. In addition, guilt, shame, profound low self-esteem and loss of interest in relationships, sex, career and even life itself are commonly found. A variety of evidence-based tools, specific to the needs of the individual, applied skillfully at the right time, can dramatically lift one out of that deep, dark pit and help avoid relapse.

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.
