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.

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.

Clients struggling with depression have shared with me that my approach and the strategies that they used in their journey were exceptionally helpful to reaching their goals. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and EMDR as the core strategies when working with depression. It is important to develop your own voice, to tell your story. Studies have shown that the key to successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship which means the development of mutual trust and respect between the client and therapist.

Everyone feels “down”, gloomy, discouraged, or sad from time to time. For some people, however, this “low” or depressed mood persists. When symptoms last for two weeks or more, and are so severe that they interfere with daily functioning, it is called depression. While clinical depression usually occurs in adulthood, it can also affect children, adolescents, and seniors, but it is more difficult to recognize in these groups. Factors such as low self-esteem and self-defeating or distorted thinking styles are connected with depression, otherwise known as a mood disorder. Events or circumstances in early childhood may also increase the likelihood of depression in adulthood. There is good new....

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'.

Fortunately, it is also very treatable, most often through talk therapy or counselling, although some people will also benefit from medication. 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.

Depression can be difficult and debilitating. Some days we don't even feel motivated to get out of bed. With clients struggling with depression I begin by helping them with the difficult symptoms that they are struggling with so that they can begin to resume their daily lives. In order to ensure that depression is not chronic or does not return the root of it must be discovered. When the root is uncovered and worked through depression no longer needs to be a part of someone's life.

Many mental health issues are caused by experiential avoidance. Those suffering with depression are often avoiding dealing with situations and circumstances in their life that causing the depression. Examples of this could be a bad marriage, an unsatisfying work situation, lack of meaningful goals in life, health issues, etc. In other words they've become immobilized. Using cognitive behavioral therapy approaches, I help clients address negative beliefs and self defeating patterns that have been holding them back from enjoying a meaningful and fulfilling life. The fact is depression is HIGHLY treatable so don't wait, get the help you need right away. You'll be glad you did.

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.

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.

Feeling sad or down from time to time is normal and typically short-lived. Longer periods of sadness may occur with grief or loss of a loved one -- also very normal. It's unrealistic to imagine we should feel happy all the time. But, sometimes, the normal and transient experience of healthy sadness become long-lasting and persistent sadnessor depression that settles in to stay and interferes with day-to-day life. Whenyou're depressed, you can't just 'snap out of it'. You might feel anxious, pessimistic, guilty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, irritable. Depression affects sleep, appetite, sex, and energy. But depression is treatable. I can help you turn the tide of your depression.

"Depression" in today's society encompasses a very broad range of experiences - everything from a prolonged sadness to feeling such despair that life no longer feels worth living. It not only affects your mood but can also impact one's physical health, relationships and work. I accompany those struggling with depression to access their natural ability to re-wire their brain towards greater health. Since each person I work with is unique, I tailor my approach to each individual depending on the root cause. This may include things such as: processing past events with EMDR or managing current stressors with mindfulness practices or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

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.

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.
