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....

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)

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.

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.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say "I'm depressed" when they mean "I'm fed up because I've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. However with depression you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least a number of weeks. Symptoms can also become severe enough to interfere with day-to-day activities. Understanding that your symptoms are due to depression, and that it is a common illness, may help you to accept that you are ill and need help.

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.

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.

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.

Have you noticed changes in your mood, thinking, and even your actions/behaviours? Depression can occur abruptly or gradually, and in either case, it can be debilitating. At the onset of therapy, many of my clients experiencing depression report the feeling of a "black cloud" or "dark cloak" that has blanketed their ability to experience positive emotions, engage in activities they previously enjoyed, and to focus on the present while moving forward. Depression keeps us stuck in the past and focused on the pain. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you are not alone. I will assist you in identifying, understanding, and alleviating your symptoms.

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.

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.

Depression isn't something you can "snap out of" or "get over". In my work with individuals experiencing depression we explore practical tools and techniques for managing the symptoms of depression. While this is immensely helpful for some, I don't like to stop here. I will work with you to dig deeper and explore the roots of depression. I will sit with you as you relearn how to experience and organize your pain. When we can make sense of our pain, it begins to feel a little less powerful and we begin to feel a little more in control.
