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?

Research has clearly demonstrated that mindfulness-based approaches to depression are so powerful that they can reduce the chances of having a relapse by 50%! That's a big deal. A depressed mind is busy creating all kinds of negative thoughts. Mindfulness-based therapy will teach you a new way to relate to your thoughts. You don't have to believe everything you think! Especially the bad stuff, becuse it's often not true.

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.

Many mental health issues are caused by experiential avoidance. Those suffering with depression are often avoiding dealing with situations and circumstances in their life that causing the depression. Examples of this could be a bad marriage, an unsatisfying work situation, lack of meaningful goals in life, health issues, etc. In other words they've become immobilized. Using cognitive behavioral therapy approaches, I help clients address negative beliefs and self defeating patterns that have been holding them back from enjoying a meaningful and fulfilling life. The fact is depression is HIGHLY treatable so don't wait, get the help you need right away. You'll be glad you did.

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.

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.

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....

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)

I work with clients diagnosed with clinical depression and with clients who due to certain circumstances may temporarily experience feelings that characterize depression such as sadness, despair, low self-esteem, emotional numbness, or unworthiness. I help my clients to gain a new perspective on their present life and to find hope for their future. It is important to alleviate the unpleasant feelings that accompany depression. At the same time it is important to understand the causes of depression and to give meaning to personal experience and desires. I accompany my clients in their journey of growth, in their search to feel better, to discover and reach their potential.

I believe that a client's experience of depression is typically a symptom of a whole range of things going on in their life. In my work with clients I like to look at the whole person and work together to understand what is contributing to them feeling unwell. By doing this, we are able to determine what needs to be addressed first (ie. work stress, relationship challenges etc.).

Depression can be difficult and debilitating. Some days we don't even feel motivated to get out of bed. With clients struggling with depression I begin by helping them with the difficult symptoms that they are struggling with so that they can begin to resume their daily lives. In order to ensure that depression is not chronic or does not return the root of it must be discovered. When the root is uncovered and worked through depression no longer needs to be a part of someone's life.

Feelings of sadness are a normal part of life, but if these feelings become intense or don't pass then you may be depressed. If you experience changes in diet, sleep patterns, activities, and motivation, then I can help. The method that I use in the treatment of depression is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I teach clients how to challenge negative core beliefs and thought patterns, and how to use various methods to alter patterns of behaviour. By exploring the environment, physical self, thoughts, and behaviours, the negative effects on mood can be determined and changed for a more positive outcome.
