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?

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.

In T3A 6E7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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.

I help clients with depression using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a research-based form of therapy in which I am certified. Behavioural strategies include helping clients to schedule more mood-enhancing activities in their daily lives. Cognitive strategies help clients change thinking patterns which have a negative effect on their moods.

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.

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.

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.

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

In assisting clients to overcome depression, I help to identify negative thought patterns and challenge those that contribute to hopelessness and despair. By adding a mindful component, clients learn to increase their awareness of thoughts and feelings, accept the full range of human emotions, and approach themselves and others with greater compassion.

In T3H 4J8 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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.

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'.

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)
