You will be treated in a respectful manner. Often depression has many natural causes which can be successfully changed. Looking at painful feelings and unresolved difficulties are a few of the areas that are addressed to lead to change. After addressing these issues people often state that they feel less or none of the depression they previously experienced. Some people (who choose to use anti-depressant medication) will no longer need their anti-depressant medication. Others will be able to reduce their medication.

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....

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?

Clients struggling with depression have shared with me that my approach and the strategies that they used in their journey were exceptionally helpful to reaching their goals. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and EMDR as the core strategies when working with depression. It is important to develop your own voice, to tell your story. Studies have shown that the key to successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship which means the development of mutual trust and respect between the client and therapist.

Depression can feel like a tide sucking us down no matter how hard we try and escape it. There are many ways of working with depression, depending on how and what your experience is. I am well trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is therapy based on linking feelings to thoughts and actively trying to change the negative thoughts. I also provide Narrative Therapy, which works to separate the “problem” (in this case depression) from the person (in this case – you). By looking at depression as separate from you, we are better able to look at it objectively and envision a time where depression does not exist in your life and work towards it by actively working against it.

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 approach depression differently from many other therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the depressing thoughts and feelings, I encourage clients to explore their depression. People develop tools and strategies to get unstuck from their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. They will learn how to change their behaviour based on what is most important to them rather than continuing to be held captive by their depression. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Depression is an exceptionally challenging emotional experience, and it seems to be on the rise in recent years. If you are experiencing depression, you are not alone. Since depression can feel exceptionally heavy, having someone alongside you to support your recovery can be very helpful. Accessing counselling for depression can aid you in relating to your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours in a more useful way. These changes can lead to an elevated mood and higher motivation overtime. If you are experiencing depression, reach out when you can, to friends and/or a therapist, for support.
