Depression treatment counsellors can help clinically depressed or mildly depressed individuals find the origin of their depression, so it is treated more permanently. In combination with meditation or without, cognitive behavioural therapy, bi-lateral stimulation, EMDR and exposure therapies are skillfully woven into Shift’s protocol, to create a structured and highly effective treatment. Risk factors and development factors are investigated in the initial intake session. Continued screenings for treatment progression and depression symptoms are present in all subsequent sessions, as well.

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.

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.

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.

When we become deeply unhappy or depressed, an avalanche of feelings, thoughts, physical sensations and behaviours come in to play. The huge emotional upheaval that can come from experiencing loss, separation, rejection or defeat, is normal and it is a shared experience by most people. However, if this distress goes on for too long it can start to permeate every aspect of our lives, taking over and dragging us down with it. Depression affects mind, body and spirit. As your therapist, think of me as your lifeline. Through Mindfulness-based strategies along with other evidence-based therapeutic interventions, depression can be overcome and I can help you on that journey back to yourself.

Depression issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing depression issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when depression is present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

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.

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.
