Is there a difference between sadness and depression? Yes, absolutely - but what does it matter when we are feeling either one? Although building our knowledge of emotions and our need of them to support these times of sadness and depression can begin to help, it is more so the quality of care and discussions we have that will lead to lasting change. Supported by helpful tools and practical applications you can often begin to see the 'light at the end of the tunnel'.

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.

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" in today's society encompasses a very broad range of experiences - everything from a prolonged sadness to feeling such despair that life no longer feels worth living. It not only affects your mood but can also impact one's physical health, relationships and work. I accompany those struggling with depression to access their natural ability to re-wire their brain towards greater health. Since each person I work with is unique, I tailor my approach to each individual depending on the root cause. This may include things such as: processing past events with EMDR or managing current stressors with mindfulness practices or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

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.

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.

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.

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.).

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.

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.

I use cognitive-behavioural therapy and interpersonal therapy. I believe that the two clinical interventions are effective in dealing with depression. I use cognitive-behavioural therapy because of its evidence in treating depression. One clear example of this is illustrated by a case in Beck and Young (1985): An adult who suffered major depression and was treated from depression by using cognitive-behavioural strategies. According to Beck and Young (1985), this person was helped by these strategies to identify her negative thoughts and correct those thoughts by distinguishing between facts and beliefs until she felt better.

Depression is an often misunderstood mental health condition that impacts the lives of people from every walk of life. While we know that depression can be improved through the use of medication alone or therapy alone the very best results often include a combination of psychotherapy and medication. When medication is not for you then therapy can be an effective way to treat the cognitive and emotional impact of this condition. My approach is to work on the thinking that allows depression to have a powerful impact on your life.
