In V3B 6B4 - Nearby to Murrayville.

Dr. Rochefort believes that depression is not a sign of weakness but rather a sign that the individual has over-demanded their personal resources. The "wet blanket" feel of depression is a huge barrier for progress forward in life. Dr. Rochefort works with individuals experiencing depression to accept, change, or adapt to adverse life circumstances, set goals and implement strategies for the future, change problematic thinking and behaviours, and develop skills to cope and overcome.

Depression is a nasty monster that wants to cover you up, place you in the corner, and keep from the world. It is important to understand that you are not the problem. The problem is the problem! Approaching depression as something to fight against, puts you in a position of power. Depression is not an all or nothing battle cured by a magic pill or single treatment. The secret to winning this battle is one behavior at a time. By making small changes and conscious positive choices you can gain ground in the fight against depression and will be surprised at how fast and easy it was to step out into a bright and sunny future.

My strategy is to understand your past and how it affects you before developing a therapeutic plan. I am interested in your story, strengths and abilities and often that's overlooked. Having a fresh set of eyes to look at the problem objectively can be helpful and change your relationship with anxiety and stress in a positive way. I use narrative therapy, rational emotive behavioural therapy and attachment focused approaches.

Depression is a medical term that describes a mood but if we simply look at the overall meaning of the word, it means to "press down". Clearly, a person who suffers from 'depression' fits the definition as a 'person who is pressed down'. i am NOT arguing that depression is a simple issue, rather that there are REASONS that a person feels 'pressed down' and at least part of the process of recovery is to first identify then lift the burden that is 'pressing down' the person.

Depression is extremely complex - at times it can completely turn your life upside down and rob you of any joy or happiness that you previously felt. Yet other times it can also show up in more subtle ways throughout your life, almost unknowingly at first. Every person is different but one commonality with depression is that it can make you feel incredibly alone and self-deprecating. Isolation feeds depression and hinders our functioning. My aim is to create a compassionate relationship so that you don’t feel alone. I’ll offer empathy and kindness while we gently work as a team to find what works for you in your journey towards a healthier mind.

Modern populations are increasingly overfed, malnourished, sedentary, sunlight-deficient, sleep-deprived, and socially-isolated. Research is showing that depressed people who put time and energy into activities that will help them recover have a higher recovery rate. Things that can help improve mood and feelings are: physical exercise, diet, managing our thoughts and feelings, self-care, social contact, improving our body 'clock' and mindfulness. None of them work like a magic cure, but when used regularly and in combination, they will help you feel much better. Everyone's mood fluctuates, so even if you put these things into practice, you will still have bad days. Be patient, it takes time

Do you experience low mood, irritability, feelings of hopelessness, changes in appetite and sleep? Depression can make it hard to enjoy the things we once looked forward to and can send us into a cycle that may feel difficult to break. In working with depression, the body-mind connection is beneficial to understand. I approach depression with compassion by facilitating learning about yourself and building meaningful ways that work best for you in approaching your concerns.

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 affects the mind and the body. It can lead to isolation, health problems and difficulties maintaining all of your relationships. You may have lost sight of your personal resources and feel like your brain is spinning out of control. I can help you find your way back by: supporting you with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) where we examine and challenge your thinking and acting; using Neurofeedback (NFB) to retrain your brain to self regulate, staying out of depression; or with EMDR where I help you to resolve trauma or past hurts, allowing you to get to a place of emotional well being by lessening the emotional charge.

Through the process of exploring the possible causes of their feelings of depression, it is my hope that clients will discover that they do have the capability of addressing these issues. Clients will learn that they do have choices in how they view specific situations, and that they have choices in how they respond to challenges in their lives. Clients will benefit from learning communication skills that will encourage them to more effectively express needs and feelings to significant people in their lives. Moreover, it is my hope that as clients come to greater self-awareness, they will develop a kinder and more gentle acceptance of Self.

Depression is approached with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Education and coping / management techniques are explored, as well as 'homework' in the form of skills practise. With children / youth often Art Therapy and / or Play therapy is integrated into the counselling. Parents of kids should expect to be involved and supported in their awareness of anxiety and stress and how to assist their children in management. Depression as an aspect of trauma (PTSD) can also be addressed.

Depression may be the result of difficulties you have been struggling with for years, or due to a sudden shock. When we feel helpless to manage our struggles, that is depressing indeed! Symptoms of depression, such as sleeplessness, eating difficulties, lack of energy etc. only make the situation worse. There are always reasons why our bodies and emotions react the way they do. We may fear that there is no way to feel better but in over 30 years, I have never found that to be true. Every life is unique and we need to find out what is holding you back. This is not something you can handle alone but in a safe, private space we can explore and change the conditions that keep you depressed.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and we do not know where to turn. No matter how much we want to change we sometimes fail, leaving us feeling even more afraid and alone. Counselling sessions can help us challenge and change negative thought patterns and feelings of hopelessness, by addressing new ways of seeing and dealing with life's difficulties. There is hope - you don't have to live with debilitating depression.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is often the modality of choice with issues of anxiety or depression. When the roots of either are found in thought distortions, CBT will be used. At times anxiety and depression might mask deeper concerns such as unmet needs, unspoken pain, frozen anger or other trauma wounds. Family systems, Compassionate Inquiry and CBT are used in these more complex situations.

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.
