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 paralyzing. Counselling will meet you where you are at. Our goals will always be reachable, but they will build competence and confidence that will help you gain your life back. When your depressive feelings are less intense, we have an opportunity to explore patterns and causes and help you manage your moods as they come and go, both for the present and in the future. Taking the step to look for help is a significant one and it is not easy, but it is worth it.

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.

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 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.

I believe it is important to separate the problem of depression from the person. Depression can feel all-encompassing and it becomes easy to forget that is something that you are struggling with and not who you are. There may be many influences on why the depression exists and I believe it is important to look at the context of one's life. The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem.

Depression feels like a 1,000 lb. weight. It's so heavy and foreboding that it makes it hard to face a day. Everything in you wants to surrender to it and just crawl back under the covers. Or, it manifests itself in different ways: you feel irritated much of the time, short-tempered, exhausted, restless, and you don't enjoy life the way you did before. Let me help you discover the reasons why you feel this way, and even if you know why, perhaps you need some guidance in terms of helping you get 'unstuck'. Just give me a call and we can begin...

Some causes of depression are a family history of depression, chemical imbalances, difficult life events and more.

Depression can feel debilitating and leave people feeling isolated and unsure of how to get out of that "grey" zone. I describe it that way because when depressed, everything feels grey and nothing seems to matter. I think it is very important to uncover the underlying causes of a client's depression. This typically involves an increased awareness of how they are seeing themselves, and changing these negative thought patterns. In a way, depression can result in self loathing and recrimination. I help my clients make significant shifts in how they see themselves and others.

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.

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

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.

We struggle with our mood at times. But sometimes, our low mood can start to dominate our lives and get in the way of feeling connected to our loved ones, doing things we used to love, or feeling optimistic and confident. Depressed feelings can get in the way of pursuing our cherished goals. Feeling low for too long can mean you stop engaging with the world around you. These depressed feelings can be really hard to take, but can be shifted and better understood. Reaching out to get help with this can start you on the path to feeling better today. You can move toward long-lasting changes in how you feel — you can become optimistic about your life again. You do not need to do it by yourself.

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.

It can be hard to see your way out of the darkness of depression. Depression can be isolating, overwhelming, and steal the joy from our lives and relationships. The good news is that depression is very treatable, and finding a professional ally to help you recover can make all the difference. I work closely with clients struggling with depression to help them discover and choose tools that help them feel better moment to moment, while we develop and put into action a plan to help them work their way out of depression. We focus as well on better understanding what may contribute to the depression and how to prevent it in the future.
