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.

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 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?

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.

Challenging life experiences and the impact of daily stressors can leave you feeling numb, disconnected from yourself and others, disengaged from daily activities, and may leave you experiencing a sense of loss in your life. Experiences of depression can manifest in the body, heart, and brain in many ways. I can work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and somatic experiences, as they relate to depression. In counselling, you may learn new ways to cope, re-claim feelings of hope, re-connect with yourself and others, and/or find new ways to engage with life in a more authentic and meaningful way.

It is difficult to go day to day, week to week, year to year having no excitement for our future, no love for ourselves and disconnected from those around us. Through counselling we will explore the reasons behind the depression and start to build self esteem through positive self talk, small goal setting and building healthier coping skills. We will also discuss building a healthy support system where you are able to be open and vulnerable.

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.

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....

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
