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.

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.

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.

Our approach to assisting clients with depression is unique in that it takes the form of a number of approaches to counselling combined. This is important because not every individual responds to all elements of a single approach in the same manner. To be most effective as a counsellor in Calgary, we assess clients needs and together come up with an approach that will yield the most positive counselling outcome, using elements from many different approaches to therapy combined.

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.

In T3A 6E7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Clients struggling with depression have shared with me that my approach and the strategies that they used in their journey were exceptionally helpful to reaching their goals. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and EMDR as the core strategies when working with depression. It is important to develop your own voice, to tell your story. Studies have shown that the key to successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship which means the development of mutual trust and respect between the client and therapist.

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.

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'.

Depression can hit anyone at any time. Most people experience it at least once in their lives. We might not even know we are depressed. Our loved ones often notice before we do. Depression can look like many things, having trouble coping with stress, feeling sad or hopeless, not keeping in touch with friends, anger or irritability, sleeping too much or too little, loss of interest in things you normally enjoy, trouble thinking or concentrating, anxiety, weight loss or gain, thinking of death or suicide, backache or headache. Counselling can work in conjunction with antidepressant drugs or on its own. I am here to help, message me today to book an appointment.

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)

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.

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.
