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....

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 depression can be treated through carefully examining beliefs we have about ourselves that no longer serve us. For example, if we learned at a young age that we were unloveable, we may have looked for ways throughout our life to prove that as truth When we start to identify self defeating beliefs and challenge them it's remarkable the changes we can experience in our overall depressive symptoms and overall sense of well being.

Depression can be all-consuming and life can seem overwhelming, difficult and hopeless at times. Despite the feeling of hopelessness, there is a reason to hope. Depression is manageable and something my clients can and do overcome. Because depression is unique to each person, I tailor my counselling style and approach to what works best for you. I also offer hypnotherapy because of the success it has in treating depression. Part of this process will involve being open to changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours. With your willingness and my guidance and support, you can identify what contributes to your depression, how to catch yourself from regressing and identify how to maintain progress

Challenging life experiences and the impact of daily stressors can leave you feeling numb, disconnected from yourself and others, disengaged from daily activities, and may leave you experiencing a sense of loss in your life. Experiences of depression can manifest in the body, heart, and brain in many ways. I can work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and somatic experiences, as they relate to depression. In counselling, you may learn new ways to cope, re-claim feelings of hope, re-connect with yourself and others, and/or find new ways to engage with life in a more authentic and meaningful way.

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.

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?

I have worked as a counsellor for the past 15+ years working with clients struggling from depression and anxiety. Depression can stem from many sources and I establish whether the depression is situational or systemic. What this means is that depression that is situational is that a life event or situation is causing difficulty in the person's life such as depression resulting from grief and/or loss. When depression is systemic, there is usually a long term experience of depression in one's life and has been either on-going since childhood or early adulthood or intermittently since then. This usually indicates that there is unprocessed trauma in a person's background.

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 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.

You will be treated in a respectful manner. Often depression has many natural causes which can be successfully changed. Looking at painful feelings and unresolved difficulties are a few of the areas that are addressed to lead to change. After addressing these issues people often state that they feel less or none of the depression they previously experienced. Some people (who choose to use anti-depressant medication) will no longer need their anti-depressant medication. Others will be able to reduce their medication.

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.

When we become deeply unhappy or depressed, an avalanche of feelings, thoughts, physical sensations and behaviours come in to play. The huge emotional upheaval that can come from experiencing loss, separation, rejection or defeat, is normal and it is a shared experience by most people. However, if this distress goes on for too long it can start to permeate every aspect of our lives, taking over and dragging us down with it. Depression affects mind, body and spirit. As your therapist, think of me as your lifeline. Through Mindfulness-based strategies along with other evidence-based therapeutic interventions, depression can be overcome and I can help you on that journey back to yourself.

I believe that a client's experience of depression is typically a symptom of a whole range of things going on in their life. In my work with clients I like to look at the whole person and work together to understand what is contributing to them feeling unwell. By doing this, we are able to determine what needs to be addressed first (ie. work stress, relationship challenges etc.).

Depression can be debilitating: feeling you have no worth, lacking the energy to get things done, not enjoying activities you used to enjoy, and even physiological changes. Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been proven to be effective in helping people who are depressed change their unhelpful thinking as well as make positive changes to their environment and activities of daily life.

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'.

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.
