Research has clearly demonstrated that mindfulness-based approaches to depression are so powerful that they can reduce the chances of having a relapse by 50%! That's a big deal. A depressed mind is busy creating all kinds of negative thoughts. Mindfulness-based therapy will teach you a new way to relate to your thoughts. You don't have to believe everything you think! Especially the bad stuff, becuse it's often not true.

I use a cognitive therapy and mindfulness-based approach to treating depression. I also work with client to establish a holistic self-care practice, because physical issues like sleep deprivation can worsen depression. In my experience, anxiety and depression often occur together, so I work with clients to help cope with these symptoms and lower stress levels. In my experience, I have supported many individuals with depression in hospital and outpatient settings since 2000. Depression is one of the most common mental health concerns, and there are many approaches and techniques that can be effective.

Depression is one of the most difficult and painful of all human experiences. It robs us of energy, interest and the will to make things better. Much of the basis for depression lies in one's thinking. We will explore thinking patterns and how they impact your emotions. We will investigate new skills such as solving problems, changing thinking patterns, and reactivating your life. We will also create a plan to prevent future episodes, how to recognize depression episodes early, and how to prevent depression from spiralling deeper.

The depression of our feelings can make things feel better for the moment and can even be a healthy way to manage in the short-term. The problem arises when we push these feelings down over time. What makes it worse is that others may even promote the depression of our feelings. But our feelings do not go away and we begin to feel depressed. Learning to reengage with our feelings helps us rediscover our strength in managing them. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat depression and look forward to working with you. Visit my website at www.prairieowlpsychology.ca from more details.

Depression comes in many forms from situational to all encompassing and familiar. You may be feeling sad, unhappy, irritable, and have a sense of hopelessness. You may be saying things to yourself such as “I’m a failure” and “Just get on with it”. Are you self critical, so much so that you lack enthusiasm, motivation and self-esteem? “What is the point?” Being depressed can lead to withdrawing from others and situations, not doing what needs to get done or substance abuse. Depression could be a natural experience as a result of a devastating life situation. Or it may be familiar to you, going back to early years as a response to uncomfortable and unbearable feelings.

While there are many causes and contributors to depression, a common approach to working with it involves challenging negative thinking. Hurtful or damaging stories we tell ourselves tend to lead to feelings of hopelessness and sadness, which in turn, manifest as depression. At least in part, therapy for depression involves exploring the roots of negative thinking whereby its legitimacy is safely challenged. By undermining these hurtful thoughts, we are more inclined to experience preferred emotions, and a more enjoyable outcome. Clients that engage this process tend to find relief from depressive symptoms and live a more fulfilling life with more options available to them.

Many people believe that in order to be "strong," they need to bury their feelings and keep them hidden from others. Over time, this can backfire, as feelings can build and take over, leaving a person feeling down and depressed, or overwhelmed. I work with clients not only to work through feelings of anger, resentment, hurt, and sadness that have built up, but to develop new habits of self-care, assertiveness, boundaries, healthy expression of feelings, communication, and stress management so that this does not occur again in the future. By doing this, they can become a more well-rounded person, who feels free to express feelings as they arise, and no longer carries them with them.

Understanding depression means knowing it is more than just "being sad". It can mean feeling less motivated, more tired, more angry or irritable, less interest in things that used to be enjoyable, feeling isolated and lonely, or just wanting it all to be over. The good news is that once we understand what depression means for you, II can work with you through one of several evidence-based therapies that have been shown to significantly reduce these symptoms and return your ability to live a fuller life.

Depression, ranging from mild to severe, interferes in all areas of daily function.

Reaching out for assistance is an effective first step in changing this cycle. To take control of depression symptoms, we will make progressive steps for healthy function, learn skills to effectively regulate emotion intensity, and challenge the negative pattern.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck, with little to no motivation. We might also blame ourselves or others for how we got here. As a psychologist my role isn't to change you, rather it is to help you gain a greater understanding of what is going on. However, this isn't a stopping point. Through greater understanding we might also increase our compassion for ourselves. By giving ourselves some grace and working through the stress and challenges of our lives often we find that motivation to move forward and continue to grow and thrive!

I believe depression comes in two forms - medical and situational. At Base Counselling, my goal is to help you determine which depression you are facing and to help you find ways to cope with it. For medical depression, a referral may be the most appropriate thing. For situational depression (or a combination of the two), my approach is to determine where it came from, how it affects you, and what you can do to cope and/or overcome it.

Sometimes depression feels so dark it is hard to get out of bed. Other times it is more like a "heavy cloud" that burdens you with constant negative thoughts and feelings. Sometimes people are haunted by a barrage of critical thoughts like "what's wrong with you", " you always screw up", " if only you were like other people". Counselling helps you change the way you think and feel about yourself so you can approach life with a more hopeful and positive outlook.

Depression is often a teacher that we haven't connected with our feelings and grieved for the loss of someone or something in our life. An example of a loss could be loss of our youth, what could have been, a dream, a part of ourselves or we are denying part of ourselves. The pain of depression causes us to slow down even though we may not want to but it also clouds our reasoning and often we feel hopeless and sometimes suicidal. In therapy we find a safe space to connect with our pain and find a way to accept the circumstances of our lives even though they may not be what we want them to be. Recovery from depression often becomes the start of a more meaningful and congruent life.
