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.

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 is not only a mental problem, it is also a physical one - often leaving you with fatigue and lack of motivation to do anything. The first step to healing depression is building inner and outer resources for immediate symptom relief. This includes self- care, especially physical exercise along with mindful awareness of your internal experience . The next step is challenging those distorted beliefs and perceptions of yourself and the world. You can get better soon.

Our aim is to help you resolve these feelings by helping you understand your depression and why it might be occurring in the first place and together identify and break the negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are interfering with your right to enjoy your life.

Mindfulness Counselling is very helpful for those who are experiencing both anxiety and mild depression. Many people feel worried a lot during their day, often having a sense of lack of fulfillment or accepting parts of themselves with a sense of overwhelm. Many individuals are wanting to connect to the deeper part of themselves that connects them with a sense of wholeness and peace. This involves learning practices to help clients with grounding in the moment rather than being on focussed on the past or future. The sense of centeredness that results with time, helps with a greater sense of empowerment, clarity and confidence in being able to handle life and is challenges.

We struggle with our mood at times. But sometimes, our low mood can start to dominate our lives and get in the way of feeling connected to our loved ones, doing things we used to love, or feeling optimistic and confident. Depressed feelings can get in the way of pursuing our cherished goals. Feeling low for too long can mean you stop engaging with the world around you. These depressed feelings can be really hard to take, but can be shifted and better understood. Reaching out to get help with this can start you on the path to feeling better today. You can move toward long-lasting changes in how you feel — you can become optimistic about your life again. You do not need to do it by yourself.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), can be effective if your depression is mild or moderate. I incorporate CBT to help you identify negative or false thoughts and replace those thoughts with healthier, more realistic ones. I will teach you how to be aware and recognize these thoughts. Then you will learn to challenge them and replace them with more helpful, healthier, and positive thoughts. That can help ease your depression.
