Feeling down? Unmotivated? Numb? Depression is awful to live with. There is hope. You do not have to stay here. We are complex, holistic creatures, and our minds, emotions, bodies, relationships, and pasts all play into depression. Sometimes we need some medication along with counselling and sometimes we don't. I like to do a very thorough intake to get to know you well. It usually takes 2-3 sessions. This helps us to explore what might be going on for you and contributing to your depression, which in turn informs our course of therapy. My goal is for you to be free and not feel this way any more.

Depression can be experienced in a magnitude of ways and is often experienced differently by each individual. Symptoms may range from feeling increasingly irritable, experiencing a sense of emptiness and hopelessness, and an individual often will feel completely overwhelmed, losing interest in activities they once enjoyed. Depression may also be experienced physically. Physical symptoms may include, but are not limited to a lack of energy, problems sleeping, pronounced weight changes, and eventually, even serious illness. In cases of mild to moderate depression, there is an increasing amount of research supporting counselling as effective as medication in improving a person’s mood. Many clients have been referred to counselling by their family doctor when...(view profile to read more)

I use a combination of therapies to treat depression. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to challenge negative thoughts, self-compassion to increase self-acceptance, and Emotion-focused therapy to process distressing emotions. The result is that clients are able to challenge the way they think, use healthier coping mechanisms, be kinder to themselves, and increase emotion regulation. This improves overall life functioning at home, in relationships, and at work or school.

I integrate cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness in treating depression, as this has been shown by research to be highly effective. Using CBT, clients benefit from understanding how their thought patterns relate to their depression, and from learning to challenge self-defeating thoughts. Sometimes, however, thoughts are stubborn, and mindfulness helps clients to "let thoughts be thoughts" while they commit themselves to a course of action that increases self-efficacy and brings fulfillment. In general, I assist clients in becoming more flexible and adaptable in their thinking, and in developing a strong set of coping skills to enhance their resiliency against depression.

Using a collaborative approach, I work with individuals with depression to investigate possible sources of their mental health concerns, including biological, psychological, environmental, situational, spiritual, or a combination of the aforementioned. Integrating evidence-based research with creative and personalized counselling, I will work with each person to forge a unique plan to overcoming and/or managing their individual challenges. My aim is to leave each individual with an increased understanding of themselves and confidence that they can live their best life possible regardless of their past, present and future circumstances.

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.

Depression does not need to hold you back. I will listen to you, feel for you, show you compassion, and help you find direction out of the maze. I know firsthand how depression can rob you of your energy, your motivation, and even your ability to reason. Let me help you restore yourself to the life you deserve. In fact, let's not stop there. Let's go beyond the life you think you deserve because if depression has got ahold of you, you probably don't think you deserve very much at all. Don't believe it. You have worth because you exist. Let's work on this together.

Depression is simply anger turned inward. My treatment focuses on helping to reveal the hidden reasons for your anger and taking the drive for it out at the very source. I use EMDR and OEI to bring out past injuries and injustices you may have been quietly holding onto for years. When you are able to release this emotional pain, you will be more able to rid yourself of self-directed anger leading to depression.

Depression is often described as a black cloud that goes before, walks along with, and follows behind clients. It can be constant and pervasive or only occasionally present but depression is almost always an unwelcome guest. Clients can benefit greatly from working with me through the triggers and causes of depression as well as proven non-medicinal methods of replacing depression with elevation and even joy.

We will start with doing an assessment to determine the level of depression, as that will determine the manner of the response. If there is suicidal ideation, the response will be different than a milder form of depression. With more severe forms of depression, the client will also be sent for a complete medical examination to determine that there is not a physical condition that could be contributing to their depressive symptoms. With any form of depression, the therapist will be looking for the root causes and working with the client to reformulate their world view.
