How does depression look in a child? Children often have moments when they feel sad, short-tempered, or withdrawn. Depression is when a child feels or behaves in such a manner over an extended period of time, affecting relationships and daily functioning. Depression is the symptom of a deeply rooted pain being suffered by the child.

Depression is the result of following a thought system based on fear. Once I have a fear thought I can increase it over and over again until everything else is eliminated and it becomes very difficult to think of anything else. Working with the mental discipline of meditation and the idea that thoughts are our choice can make an immediate difference.

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 does not need to hold you back. I will listen to you, feel for you, show you compassion, and help you find direction out of the maze. I know firsthand how depression can rob you of your energy, your motivation, and even your ability to reason. Let me help you restore yourself to the life you deserve. In fact, let's not stop there. Let's go beyond the life you think you deserve because if depression has got ahold of you, you probably don't think you deserve very much at all. Don't believe it. You have worth because you exist. Let's work on this together.

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.

The emotional as well as physical pain of depression can seem unmanageable at times. Using a combination of Cognitive and Behavioural therapy, as well as a psychodynamic approach I first help individuals manage and combat the symptoms they are experiencing. I then gently push them to explore and understand the deeper correlates and events (past and present) that contribute to their ongoing sense of feeing unwell.

Depression manifests itself in many forms, and has been believed to have various causes. I believe in the addage that the depressed person "turns anger inward." In other words, the person who is depressed is in fact angry with him/herself. Anger and sadness are two sides of the same coin. In my practice, I've found that those who have issues with anger actually have unresolved issues surrounding the sadness they feel toward others or towards the situation they are in. As a trained therapist, I work with my clients to address issues around sadness. Once these issues are resolved and there is functional closure, I then help clients address their maladaptive behavior with respect to anger

Studies have shown that people who are depressed are actually MORE realistic than people who aren't depressed. Isn't that an uplifting thought? One only has to turn on the news, or go online to find reasons to be sad about the state of affairs in the world. If your personal life isn't any better, why should anyone be surprised? You have a keenness and a sensitivity that allows things to really get to you. It isn't a detriment, it is a gift. But it is wrapped in sadness. My sense of humor and acceptance will help you get out of bed and on with your life. If you don't come to my office, you won't get to hear my favorite blonde joke. But it won't come without appreciation of the dark.

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 a very common condition, although most individuals suffering from depression feel extremely alone and misunderstood. They often feel ashamed of the symptoms or don't realize they are depressed. Heidi helps her clients identify whether they are depressed and then helps them through it. She primarily uses supportive counselling, CBT techniques, and encourages lifestyle changes that can ease the depression without medication. Clients on the Sunshine Coast of B.C. report improvement in their moods and energy levels through the resulting changes in thinking and behaving that are fuelling the depression, which then benefit them in other aspects of their lives.
