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.

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.

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.

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.

I help clients to challenge problematic thoughts, capitalize on positive coping skills, and teach new ways of coping in order to help them manage feelings of despair, hopelessness, and helplessness. Together, we develop a plan for how to combat fatigue, problems with appetite and sleep, low motivation, a negative focus, and suicidal ideations. I support my clients in implementing, evaluating, and adjusting these plans as they work their way through depressive episodes. Additionally, creating a plan for relapse is essential for long-term success.

Many people think depression is about not doing enough or being uncommitted to their goals, however, people who struggle with depression are facing the problem of being over-committed to their goals and failing. When I work with clients dealing with depression the goal is to manage goals and expectations and work on creating small changes that build momentum to larger changes.

Depression treatment counsellors can help clinically depressed or mildly depressed individuals find the origin of their depression, so it is treated more permanently. In combination with meditation or without, cognitive behavioural therapy, bi-lateral stimulation, EMDR and exposure therapies are skillfully woven into Shift’s protocol, to create a structured and highly effective treatment. Risk factors and development factors are investigated in the initial intake session. Continued screenings for treatment progression and depression symptoms are present in all subsequent sessions, as well.

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.

I treat the presentation of depression by exploring the cause of the depression as opposed to attempting to simply suppress the symptoms. I believe it is useful to explore the individual's thinking, behaviour, emotions, relationships, and overall health. An individual's thinking may cause a downward spiral into the darkness of depression. Challenging the thought patterns that become entrenched often causes a major shift in the presenting symptoms. Creating new pathways is possible and often life altering as a new way of being emerges.
