Depression issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing depression issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when depression is present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

There is no simple 'cure' for depression and therapy with the aim to address depression will focus on the unique aspects of an individual's experience. Through the provision of support and an environment of safety and trust, individuals can begin to explore their experience of depression, including symptoms, relationships, trauma and early experiences, etc., and begin to work towards growth and change.

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.

Most people experience depression at some time in their life, and often they are able to resolve it on their own. When depression starts to affect one’s life in a number of ways, then therapy can often help. Depression can slowly overcome people, having them feel overwhelmed, stressed, angry or anxious, causing them to withdraw into themselves. This can impact them in every facet of their lives, from physically and emotionally, to socially and financially. Therapy can not only help a client start to reverse their negative feelings, it can also help prevent depression in the future. Our approach is cognitive behavioural therapy, which is proven to be quite affective with depression.

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.
