Are you feeling sad and down all the time? Do you feel like life is meaningless and has lost its color? Art therapy is a very useful way of starting to understand your depression by starting to engage with yourself and understand your self. What is it that you need to be OK? Who are you when you aren't sad? How do you know that you are depressed? Dream exploration is also an excellent way of getting to know our psyche and starting to become curious about what it needs. Dreams allow us to understand what it is that we are neglecting. Whether you are experiencing chronic depression or acute depression, I would be happy to help facilitate your healing journey

If depression could speak, it would say "why bother?" Depression leaves us feeling unmotivated, hopeless, and negative about ourselves and our potential. In counselling, I provide a compassion-focused approach to treating depression that will help you to increase your sense self-worth and build motivation to mobilize yourself. I believe that when treating depression, it is essential to explore emotions such as anger, guilt and shame that often perpetuate a defeated and empty state. Doing so can feel uncomfortable, but is ultimately liberating. Many of my depressed - even suicidal - clients report that therapy has helped improve their mood and take meaningful action in their lives.

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.

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.

Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t beat it through sheer willpower, but you do have some control—even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. Recovering from depression requires action. But taking action when you’re depressed is hard. In fact, just thinking about the things you should do to feel better, like going for a walk or spending time with friends, can be exhausting. Getting the support you need plays a big role in lifting the fog of depression and keeping it away.

Depression can be very difficult to overcome. Do low mood, a lack of motivation and energy, and feeling helpless make it next to impossible to work on feeling better? Have you reached a point where you need some new strategies to keep things from getting worse? If you answered yes to any of these questions you are not alone. In fact, depression is one of the top 10 reasons people seek out treatment from their family doctor. It is possible to feel better, regain your energy, and find ways to bounce back from adversity. Depression counselling can help you to change the way you think, how you manage your emotions, and what you do when faced with challenges so that you can feel better again.

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.

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.

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.

Tiffani views feelings of depression as a symptom of "unfinished business" of the past that impedes the present experience and future possibilities. Feelings of depression (sadness, lack of motivation, fatigue, irritability, poor concentration, thoughts of self-harm) are a message that something is not right and needs to be addressed. Tiffani offers a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to speak openly about troubling thoughts, explore self-defeating patterns and problem solve to experience life as joyful, peaceful and satisfying.

Depression is not only a mental problem, it is also a physical one - often leaving you with fatigue and lack of motivation to do anything. The first step to healing depression is building inner and outer resources for immediate symptom relief. This includes self- care, especially physical exercise along with mindful awareness of your internal experience . The next step is challenging those distorted beliefs and perceptions of yourself and the world. You can get better soon.
