Depression can be difficult and debilitating. Some days we don't even feel motivated to get out of bed. With clients struggling with depression I begin by helping them with the difficult symptoms that they are struggling with so that they can begin to resume their daily lives. In order to ensure that depression is not chronic or does not return the root of it must be discovered. When the root is uncovered and worked through depression no longer needs to be a part of someone's 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.

Depression is a mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that can interfere with daily functioning and relationships. Reaching out for help is a step towards healing and wellness. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but it is a very treatable condition. Therapy for depression helps you overcome the feelings of hopelessness and despair and to regain control of your life.

Depression is the most common mood disorder in the world. But it is also one of the most treatable. There have been well over 100,000 clinical studies on depression, so a lot has been learned, and it has become clear what the best treatment approaches are. Unfortunately, only one in four depressed people will seek psychological services. This is truly sad since cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal psychology can make a lasting difference in breaking your unique pattern of depression. Why not get started today on a brighter future?

Difficult emotions are part of life, and can provide us with valuable information if we are able to tolerate them. They can tell us what's important, when something is wrong, and can guide our actions to see that our needs are met in the present, and help us overcome similar situations in the future. Unfortunately, that message becomes lost when we are depressed, replaced with a tendency to blame ourselves for the distress we feel, often leading to self-reciprocating negative spiral that can feel hopeless. You can overcome this, and, with training in CBT, emotion focused therapy, and with strong emphasis on cultivating a safe, my compassionate therapeutic atmosphere, perhaps I can help.

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.

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.

Challenging life experiences and the impact of daily stressors can leave you feeling numb, disconnected from yourself and others, disengaged from daily activities, and may leave you experiencing a sense of loss in your life. Experiences of depression can manifest in the body, heart, and brain in many ways. I can work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and somatic experiences, as they relate to depression. In counselling, you may learn new ways to cope, re-claim feelings of hope, re-connect with yourself and others, and/or find new ways to engage with life in a more authentic and meaningful way.

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....

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.

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.

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)

Struggling with depression is extremely difficult. There are many factors that result in someone experiencing depression. Therefore, when treating someone who is struggling with depression, I start by examining their life to get a comprehensive understanding of what is influencing the depression. To reduce stigma and develop understanding I will also provide an explanation of what is happening in their brain. The goals of the sessions will be focused on addressing the beliefs they have about themselves, others and the world, developing helpful coping strategies and fostering their strengths.
