No two people experience depression in exactly the same way and so dealing with it also needs an individual approach. Rather than viewing depression as something wrong with the person experiencing it, the client and I listen to what it might have to say to them. Though understandably, nobody likes depression, and it can be managed with tools such as Cognitive Behavioural therapy and mindfulness, etc., it can also be engaged through other approaches that allow its importance and meaning (and what it is calling for) is revealed. This can bring greater richness, wisdom, and appreciation for life.

The symptoms of depression can be debilitating. You might be struggling to complete even the basic tasks of self-care, feeling hopeless, helpless, but without the energy to do anything about it. Remember, you are not alone, and you don't have to do it all by yourself. Asking for help is the first step towards hope and new perspectives. I can offer you the support you need, as well as guidance in small, simple steps to get you back on your feet, and feeling more like yourself once again.

Depression is now the number one cause of suffering in the world today (World Health Organization Statistics). Each person's story is different and there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to treating depression, depending upon the severity of symptoms. I assess and offer practical tools as well as create a safe and secure place and environment for people to come and talk to me about things that they may not tell anyone else because of the shame and stigma of depression. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy as well as a number of other therapeutic techniques which have been proven to help with depression.

Social anxiety and shyness can easily lead to feelings of depression. If you feel depressed because you feel alone, isolated and have trouble making friends, you might be glad to know that there is a way to learn and practice the social skills you missed learning as a child. You can learn and practice new skills, meet new people, learn how to start conversations and create your own social circle. Life can change and it takes just one step to start the process rolling in the right drection.

Depression is real and it can range from feeling a little sad to being seriously clinically depressed. It has been my experience as a counsellor to find that many people are sad and label themselves as "depressed" when actually they are unhappy with their lives for all kinds of reasons. The biggest benifit for many of my clients is discovering that they begin to feel alot better as they work through their feeligs about what makes them sad. And often ,as not ,this process does not take that long.

Real Solutions to Real Challenges. Common Sense Techniques Get relief from depresion. Depression is a symptom that may stem from an identifyable event, an unfulfilled intention, poor self-worth, perfectionistic traits,or as a result of a trauma such as sexual abuse, bullying, poor attachment . Over time an individuals brain chemistry can physically change. When a depresion trigger occurs it then becomes easier for that individual to go to an even darger place. Hoplessness sets in and the person becomes very discouraged. Martin helps his clients to understand these patterns, reframe beliefs, and discharge the issues that are at the core of the depresssion.

Depression can feel debilitating and leave people feeling isolated and unsure of how to get out of that "grey" zone. I describe it that way because when depressed, everything feels grey and nothing seems to matter. I think it is very important to uncover the underlying causes of a client's depression. This typically involves an increased awareness of how they are seeing themselves, and changing these negative thought patterns. In a way, depression can result in self loathing and recrimination. I help my clients make significant shifts in how they see themselves and others.

Depression feels like a 1,000 lb. weight. It's so heavy and foreboding that it makes it hard to face a day. Everything in you wants to surrender to it and just crawl back under the covers. Or, it manifests itself in different ways: you feel irritated much of the time, short-tempered, exhausted, restless, and you don't enjoy life the way you did before. Let me help you discover the reasons why you feel this way, and even if you know why, perhaps you need some guidance in terms of helping you get 'unstuck'. Just give me a call and we can begin...

I would love to journey with you in your depression - there's no judgement here with me. I want to walk along side you and come up with a plan together to help you get back to feeling like yourself again, and for you to enjoy life to it's fullest.

If you're looking for help with depression, I know how hard it can be to actually take those steps. I want to encourage you for considering getting help, and I want to offer you hope. I work with cognitive therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy, and both are backed by scientific support for helping with depression. More than that though, I am really passionate about helping people get out of those horrible episodes of hopelessness. We can make a plan together, one step at a time, the first step being to get in touch http://presentmomentum.ca/contact/ .

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.
