Vancouver, British Columbia

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

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)

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 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 impact a person’s thoughts, feelings, actions, and physical health. Different types of depression have different causes. Some causes of depression are a family history of depression, chemical imbalances, difficult life events and more. If you don’t like doing things you used to, are overwhelmed, your appetite has changed, and concentrating is hard, this may be depression. Many types of depression respond well to counselling. If you see me for counselling for depression, together we can: • Look at how depression impacts you • Explore tools for minimizing the impact of depression on your life • Develop tools for navigating stressful situations • Increase your understanding of depression and mental health • Increase your confidence...(view profile to read more)

Suite 616-402 W. Pender Street, Vancouver, British Columbia

Feeling sad, low or in a bad mood is a normal part of being human. Depression is different; it can hold us back from our lives, suck our energy, and have us thinking negatively about ourselves and the world. And, depression is treatable. My job is to create the support you need to clarify the issues and situations that trigger depression, so that you can identify and act on strategies to interrupt the dark times, to move forward, and be proactive in the future. While it's not always possible to pinpoint the cause, we can work effectively with what we do know: about thoughts, emotions and actions that can either hold us back or be allies.

#205, 2902 West Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia

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 can negatively affect our relationships, ability to concentrate, feelings of self-worth, and life enjoyment. Even getting out of bed in the morning can be tough. We know that counselling can help by interrupting patterns of thought and behaviour that feed the depression. I work with you by sharing skills designed to positively change the way you think about things and the way you interact with others and the world around you. You may feel helpless or hopeless, but know that you are not alone.
