Depression impacts people on many levels and can greatly impact relationships and work performance. Emma explores biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to both the development and the treatment of depression. She uses cognitive behavioural therapy to help people understand how depression affects the way they think, feel, and behave and the impact it has on the body. Emma focuses on improving mood, coping, and resilience, which includes developing more balance and positive thinking patterns, changing negative core beliefs, learning healthy coping strategies, expressing thoughts and feelings in positive ways, and enhancing boundaries, self-esteem and support systems.

The role of psychotherapy in treating depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Benefits to be gained from therapy in treating depression include helping reduce stress in your life; it can give you a new perspective on problems with family, friends, or co-workers; it can make it easier to stick to your medical treatment; you can use it to learn how to cope with side effects from depression medication; you learn ways to talk to other people about your condition; it helps catch early signs of clinical depression.

Depression is the common cold of psychology. Like anxiety and stress, depression is quite commonly reported by consumers of psychotherapy. I am experienced, comfortable, and patient with treating depression. I am neither strongly opposed nor strongly supportive of pharmacotherapeutics. I engage an approach that is personal-growth-centered and as independent of the medical model as is possible.

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

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.

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.

Based on clinical research, spending time with animals can help lessen the symptoms of depression-- particularly when combined with counselling. Relationships formed with horses can illustrate to clients the impact that depression is having in their life and relationships. This can both motivate the client to move towards healing and also provide the safety needed to better understand the challenges they are facing and to make movement toward change.

Often prolonged depression or depression that is resistant to medication is not as much a clinical depression as it is a reaction to a series of environmental or interpersonal situations that leave us feeling chronically helpless with low self-worth. This is especially true when the situations happen during childhood. Moving beyond the helplessness often requires medication but more importantly, an opportunity to understand and process those negative situations. Making sense of what we are feeling helps us to put our experiences in perspective, process and release the lingering emotions related to those experiences, and move on towards a happy and productive life.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

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.

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, ranging from mild to severe, interferes in all areas of daily function. When we’re drained of energy, enjoyment and motivation, we can become caught in a vicious cycle of isolation and worsening or persistent symptoms. 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.

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.

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 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.
