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 is an experience that many individuals have in their lives and it is important for people to understand that they are not alone. Working very closely with clients helps me understand what goals are the most important to them so that we can slowly build up their confidence again. Building self-awareness and connections to others can help lift the depression fog but it all comes down to the readiness of the client and the power of their will to do the work required to make the change.

Counselling for depression can help you in many ways: • offer support • problem solving • recognize and change your thinking and behavior • get your emotional needs met • relate to others • improve skills such as communication, boundaries and assertiveness • increase your self-esteem • deal with guilt and a sense of failure • treat the causes, not only symptoms • get you back into living your life • avoid recurrence. I use physical, emotional, cognitive, interpersonal and spiritual methods to treat depression. I have a special interest and expertise in working with pregnancy and postpartum depression that preserves the well-being of both mom and baby and the whole family.

During the pandemic, I received training from Michael Yapko on the treatment of depression. His key therapeutic messages were: 1) You can develop the skills to cope. 2) The past does not predict the future. 3) You are more than your history. 4) You are more than your symptoms. 5) You have more resources than you realize and you can learn to use them effectively. I ultimately utilize these therapeutic approaches with depression. I can help change language from "I can't" to "I can," while also looking forward to the future with a strengths-based approach.

Depression can be debilitating: feeling you have no worth, lacking the energy to get things done, not enjoying activities you used to enjoy, and even physiological changes. Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been proven to be effective in helping people who are depressed change their unhelpful thinking as well as make positive changes to their environment and activities of daily life.

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.

Depression is often a persistent feeling of sadness, heaviness and loss of interest. This can sometimes look like having difficulty sleeping, oversleeping or a lethargy that gets in the way of your daily functioning. Together, we will work on understanding your thoughts and find ways to slowly re-activate and re-animate your body. We know that implementing small habits, like starting your day with a 5-minute walk, can have a huge effect on your overall mood. We will create manageable, step-by-step strategies and build small habits to help you increase your mood, make your daily experience less heavy, and slowly brighten your outlook on life.

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....

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.

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.
