Depressive symptoms can have a major impact on our ability to live the life we desire. We tend to feel tired, foggy, and unmotivated during these times which lead to us to pull back from our normal day to day activities. The more we pull back, the more we spiral downwards in the depression. Together, we will figure out what led you down the depression spiral and how you can start to climb back out to live a life that is meaningful.

Having depression enter one's life is shocking, debilitating and saddening. Depression throws one into states of dulled emotion and distorted thinking. Central to feeling depressed is a seemingly inescapable loss of vitality and energy. Entering into counselling with me as a means of exiting depression from your life will entail reframing your thinking, engaging adaptive emotions and creating a healthier lifestyle centered around mindfulness practices, daily exercise and good nutrition. We will create a strong therapeutic alliance that is focused on restoring the vitality, positive mind sets and hopefulness needed to bring your life, back to life.

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.

Being in a dark place can seem so much more bleak when no one seems to be able to understand. And, it's even worse when those you love just expect you to pull yourself together and get on with it and it feels God is just as far away. Come and experience a special place of deep understanding for women's depression where your faith is integrated with the empowerment that comes from owning the skills you need to walk out of depression and breath again.

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.

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)

Unlike healthy sadness or a "blue mood", depression is not always connected with a particular loss. It can feel as though someone threw a dark, wet, overcoat on top of us and we are unable to move forward or see the good in ourselves or the world around us. Depression is not something you can just snap out of. Fortunately using cognitive behavioral therapy strategies we can focus on identifying and changing your unhealthy beliefs that may be deepening depressive symptoms. Later as your symptoms improve, we can then focus on relapse prevention.

Feeling sad or down from time to time is normal and typically short-lived. Longer periods of sadness may occur with grief or loss of a loved one -- also very normal. It's unrealistic to imagine we should feel happy all the time. But, sometimes, the normal and transient experience of healthy sadness become long-lasting and persistent sadnessor depression that settles in to stay and interferes with day-to-day life. Whenyou're depressed, you can't just 'snap out of it'. You might feel anxious, pessimistic, guilty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, irritable. Depression affects sleep, appetite, sex, and energy. But depression is treatable. I can help you turn the tide of your depression.

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.

We will explore what maintains this state for you, and what might be most helpful, so that you can shift into a state of well-being and connection with self and others.

I believe in an approach to helping that starts from building on the strengths of the client; using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, and Problem Solving pragmatic approaches to help the client learn new strategies to initially cope and then delve into changing the way they think about themselves and their world. Breaking and changing ineffective and damaging thinking patterns and replacing them with more effective and sound habits and patterns is the groundwork for change. I also believe that using an existential approach that takes into account searching for and creating meaning is crucial to building success and growing out of depression.

My approach for clients who feel paralyzed by an overwhelming sense of loss, failure, self-worth, helplessness, or hopelessness is through emotional-focused and attachment process. Therapy will involve looking into the life experience of the client and the origin of the negative sense of self, how this undermines the way they see themselves, and how it has affected relationships with others. The goal of therapy is to make sense of the negative cycle the client has experienced, which allows for new experiences and a more positive sense of self and others.

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.

The word "depression" has become widespread and has come to mean very different things to many different people. Generally it entails deep sadness, lack of energy, motivation and interest in things, and sometimes it is described simply as a big, black cloud hanging over one's head all day long. Whatever the individual experience of it, depression requires learning ways to manage it to make it feel less overwhelming, as well as exploration to gain an understanding of what may be contributing to it. These endeavours are done through ways that fit with your needs and the essence of who you are.
