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.

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.

I am very experienced in working with depression and anxiety, combining various approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Interpersonal Therapy, to help you better understand and deal with feelings of being overwhelmed by life right now.

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 can be a part of the human condition! When you are calm, perhaps the experience is more profound when you realize that negative situations and people do not need to bind you entirely. Resiliency toolkits, including gratitude journals and positive affirmations, could help you to rise above cultural narratives that reinforce doom and gloom! You can realize your fullest potential for personal and social growth. You do not need to be defined by your depression, and you can, with supportive services, including through us, release your human potential, considering your problems differently with a change of perspective.

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.

Only one in three people struggling with major depression gets the treatment they need – do not be part of the statistics of those who are not treated. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can help you decide on the correct pharmacological intervention that is right for you, and come alongside you in suggesting the best evidence-based therapeutic approach. If you are yo-yoing on and off antidepressants and tranquilizers, you are probably reducing your chances of recovery by doing damage to your brain. By the fifth or sixth major depressive episode, your recovery chances have been compromised and the relapse rate has gone up – effective treatment is available now!

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.

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.

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 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.
