Depending is often the result of negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself and your life. One gets trapped in a downward spiral that drains the life force out of you. Past experiences and actions may continue to haunt you. The beliefs about oneself can be difficult to fight. My approach is not to cheer lead you to fight them and be strong but to go deeper and challenge the very truth of what you are believing about yourself. Accepting ones weakness and vulnerability without being controlled by them can be hard but it is ultimately the way up to a more integrated and fulfilling life.

At The Counselling Space, we recognize the debilitating effects that depression has on clients, not only as individuals, but also on their relationships. As a parent, partner, friend, or employee, it is very hard to function in life when depression has drained the life force and energy we rely on to enjoy day to day activities and relationships. Together, we work with clients to identify the smallest, most manageable steps clients can take to make changes in their lives. We understand that when depression comes to visit, change can feel overwhelming and even impossible at times - because of this, we follow your lead, nudging you forward in a gentle way to support your unique healing journey.

Depression is not feeling bad – it is not feeling. When we become depressed we try to insulate ourselves from our emotions. Treatment for depression requires a willingness to feel what we are avoiding. This requires a process of exploring the buried feelings in a safe, supportive environment. As we become friends with our emotions we can gradually come back to life.

Depression affects an estimated 1 in 15 adults every year, and 15% of people will experience depression at some point in their lives. It isn’t just an episode of sadness; you can’t simply snap out of it. If you’ve never experienced it, it’s hard to understand what living with this complex medical illness is like. Living with depression often means believing that things will never change; you are stuck in overwhelming darkness that will never go away.

When one is depressed the range of thoughts and feelings encompass a wide spectrum. Sadness and despair might be pervasive. One can feel as if they have fallen into a deep dark pit where everything is covered in negativity and hopelessness. In this state, one can feel inadequate, discouraged, unable or unwilling to make decisions. In addition, guilt, shame, profound low self-esteem and loss of interest in relationships, sex, career and even life itself are commonly found. A variety of evidence-based tools, specific to the needs of the individual, applied skillfully at the right time, can dramatically lift one out of that deep, dark pit and help avoid relapse.

Depression can have multiple and complex causes, but most often it can be attributed to how we think. When we examine our thoughts, we can find we are struggling with automatic negative thoughts that leave us feeling depressed. Learning how to identify these thoughts and actively speak differently to ourselves armed with statements that are more true, we can see the depression levels begin to decrease.
