There are a variety of factors that affect the complex architecture of the sensitive brain - genetics and neuro-chemistry, environmental and inter-personal stressors, diet and life-style choices, family of origin influences. Research determines psycho-therapy to be an essential component of any successful treatment plan for depression. I will help you identify the specific factors that contribute to your personal experience of depression. I will share with you the most current research on effective strategies for treating depression. I will support you fully to take the actions necessary to end the suffering that can be caused by this often very painful experience.

We all feel blue or a bit low sometimes. Depression is different. Depression often operates in ways that erode an individual's support system. It is important to seek the assistance of a skilled counsellor. Many of my clients who experience depression really benefit from having me listen to them. They feel like their voice has been taken from them. They feel like their friends and family do not understand what they are going through. I would work to encourage clients in their fight against the behaviours that accompany depression and draw upon their personal agency and resources to do so.

Depression is the result of following a thought system based on fear. Once I have a fear thought I can increase it over and over again until everything else is eliminated and it becomes very difficult to think of anything else. Working with the mental discipline of meditation and the idea that thoughts are our choice can make an immediate difference.

At Wellness Centered we believe that depression is an extremely common condition which, statistics say, can affect more than one in ten people regardless of age, gender or historical background. Depression can be in response to a traumatic event or loss but often it occurs for no apparent reason. A depressed person may feel isolated and lonely and may think no one around them understands how they feel. 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.

If depression is holding you back from living a happy and fulfilled life therapy can benefit you in many ways. I incorporate a holistic approach in which I help you to consider practical changes that you can make in your diet, sleep patterns, and exercise levels in order to support the brain chemistry that is required to feel good. We would also consider the underlying sources of depression in your life and address them directly. Finally, we would explore any thinking patterns that reinforce your depression, and replace them with more empowering, compassionate, and assertive thoughts that would contribute to increased self-esteem and overall sense of wellbeing.

If you are suffering from depression, reaching out for help by looking for a counsellor is an excellent place to start. Research has shown several counselling modalities to be effective for treating depression, with or without the concurrent use of medications. I will tailor therapeutic interventions according to your unique situation, as we consider the role that your mind, body, spirit, and relationships may play in your depression. I will help you find immediate, practical changes you can make to start feeling better right away, as well as explore the possible root causes of your depression. Long-lasting and significant change toward a brighter and happier life is possible.

Depression is the sense of being stuck in life and nothing moves. There are different forms of depression that goes along with the stuckness. Sometimes it is contextual, sometimes it's grief, other times it is mixed with anxiety so it appears differently than typical depression. Psychoeducation and therapy will help to create connection and movement. For some people, the combination of medication and therapy is the best option but not everyone needs medication and not everyone needs therapy. Together we can sort out what you need and how to maximize your recovery.

Whether it be situational depression or an ongoing pattern of depression, we can find ways to improve your mood and thus your quality of life.

Being able to talk about our experiences and allow our feelings to surface is a first step toward unlocking ourselves from the weight of depression. The therapeutic approaches I draw on to support your shift out of a state of depression to a happier, more hopeful perspective will depend on your unique circumstances. f safety and trust feel confident to start sharing your experience with me, knowing that you are seen and understood. Often we have not had a place to share our struggles where we felt heard and accepted. Even the small shift in perspective that can be the result is enough to begin change.

Depression is very different from feeling normal sadness over situations that make us feel sad. Depression is what happens when one feels helpless to change what has happened or what is going to happen and hopeless that things will ever be better or different again. It is a very painful place to be. In how I approach dealing with depression is to source out what is hopeless and to understand why that is the place you go to in order to change how you view things that happen to you and your future. That by processing and feeling what initially caused the depression helps to create change and a sense of feeling empowered to find solutions to life's changes and challenges.

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.
