There is a lot of discussion about "overcoming" or "ending" depression but what if these symptoms are actually warning signs that are designed to tell us that something in your life needs to change? Understanding these signs better can help people to move toward living a life that feels more meaningful rather than continuing to avoid or ignore the difficult thoughts and feelings that reinforce depression.

Depression results from a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is not the result of a personal weakness or lack of coping skills. The impairment is real and can result in feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed and in some cases suicidal. Fortunately, depression can be treated with both medication and counseling; the combination usually being most effective. Counselling can help persons who experience depression in providing an outlet for voicing frustrations and obstacles, identifying support avenues, leaning new coping skills and exploring the most recent avenues of treatment. Counselling offers a non-judgemental and confidential sounding board.

Depression can be a devastating point of being, and we first will hear your experience and point of view. Using ONLINE tools like video conferencing, email and text supports, I will support you in expressing your feelings, and will either talk or use art making tools, or employ both in this important first step. Next we will look at how you want to show up in the world, how do you want to be in your life? Working backwards, we develop a plan to help you move forward and start on your healing path.

Depression can be a lonely, disheartening, hopeless state that ultimatley has a negative impact on your life. The good news is that you can release yourself from the grips of depression by changing underlying beliefs that are limiting and holding you back from living life to the fullest. I provide cognitive and experiential tools to help alleviate depression and create a life with meaning and fulfillment. In my practice I teach self-hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique and provide other tools to alter limiting beliefs, increase energy and vitality, and provide a renewed sense of hope and possibility in life.

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. Many clients have been referred to counselling by their family doctor when...(view profile to read more)

At the Centre For Expressive Therapy, I offer counselling to adults and children suffering from depression. I use Holistic Expressive Therapy that helps to further explore difficult issues that words sometimes cannot reach. Within the safety of the therapeutic relationship, images are created through drawing, writing, painting, collage, sand play, and photography. These images are then reflected upon for the purpose of finding solutions to underlying issues. My therapy methods help individuals of all ages to not only cope with their life challenges but to learn and grow from them.

Depression can be deeply painful, robbing you of energy, motivation, and hope. It creates a negative view of life, your self, and your future. It typically disrupts sleep patterns, appetite, emotions, and your thinking ability. I use the clinical practice of cognitive behavioural therapy to help people regain healthy control over their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and reclaim a sense of influence over their life style and life situation's. Coaching you to refocus, set small daily goals, celebrate your successes, and learn new behavioral and thinking skills can take time but the good news is that once you have acquired these skills you have them for life.
