Clients suffering from depression and/or anxiety can learn to be with their own authentic feelings and to express and share their real emotions, thus transforming destructive depressive patterns to creatively living better with their losses, and wounds. Often unconscious defence mechanisms can rule a person's behaviors inspite of best intentions. Through the therapeutic relationship one can become more aware of inner conflicts and to deal better with both inner and outer conlficts.

Depression can feel like a wet blanket you wear around you day in and day out. You may find it hard to remember what if felt like before or have hope that you will ever feel normal again.

Depression is a debilitating experience. You may find you are extremely self critical, so much so that you lack enthusiasm, motivation and self-esteem. You have probably internalized anger against yourself, possibly because as a child, you felt you had no one to whom you could express these feelings. Were you told you were too sensitive? You are not. You need a strong therapist on whom you can rely while you are reorganizing your internal world. I will help you make the necessary changes in your life.

Counselling, Coaching and Consulting

103 - 920 Hillside Ave, Victoria , British Columbia

It seems to never go away, you get up each day feeling as though the dark cloud that was there yesterday and the day before that, is back today and it feels like it is going to be there tomorrow. While some depression can be circumstantial and others bio-chemical. Depression is not something that ususally changes overnight but if you are willing to do the work, put some time and effort into your therapy, you will overcome.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Michelle Iulianella, BEd, MBA, MA, RCC, CCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

215 - 2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, British Columbia

With an emphasis on the latest findings in clinical research as well as cognitive behavioural and emotionally-focused strategies, I work with clients to begin to address their depression symptoms from the inside out. Actionable strategies, customized to each client, are paired with therapeutic work that addresses the emotional, cognitive and behavioural roots of their depression. As a result, clients begin to experience increased feelings of hope, happiness, empowerment and overall vitality and wellbeing. When appropriate, and at the request of each client, I collaborate with the client and his or her medical and/or naturopathic doctor regarding medications and supplements.

Depression Counsellor

Dorion Dellabough, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

4350 Woodcrest Place, Victoria, British Columbia

My approach to dealing with depression is to face it on two levels. First, there are the cognitive behavioural treatment options to address the basic skills needed just to get through each day. We will build a strategy together and I will help to keep you on track. Then the real therapy begins. Together, in a safe manner and at an acceptable pace, we will unveil some of your defences and rediscover your trapped potential - the part of you that gives life real meaning and purpose. I truly believe your life means something and that you have purpose.

Depression Counsellor

Oscar Trad-Pizarro, MA, RSW, CCC, RRP, SEP

Registered Social Worker and Certified Canadian Counsellor

550-2950 Douglas St., Victoria, British Columbia

Using a biological-psychological-social-environmental approach, I help clients to work on their depression. This approach allows the client to identify different possible contributors for their depression, and consequently creating more options for addressing their depression. Identifying different contributors help clients to keep working towards their goals because each contributor can be a specific path for working towards their goals.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#7 - 1921 Fernwood Rd, Victoria , British Columbia

Depression is a natural response to adverse life circumstances. It can also be the result of a biological predisposition. Sometimes medication is necessary to effectively treat depression. Talk therapy is always recommeded whether as an adjunct to medication or in its own right. Often unexpressed (and even unknown) feelings of anger underly depression. Getting in touch with and expressing these feelings of anger can sometimes help to lift a person out of depression. A trained professional can facilitate this process.

Depression can feel like there's no way out. With compassion and acceptance, Maureen helps clients gain insight into thoughts and feelings that contribute to depression.

Depression Counsellor

Maryse Neilson, MSW, RSW

Counsellor and Registered Social Worker

Cedar Hill/Saanich, Victoria, British Columbia

Nothing can zap joy from life as quickly and devastatingly as depression can. I will help you move through the fog of depression to understand how our perceptions affect our mood and reality and how to shift to a place where we have more control over our reactions, our beliefs and feelings, and ultimately our behaviours. Understanding why we find ourselves in the place we do is important but it is not useful if we don't also develop the skills to move out of harmful and damaging places.
