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...

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.

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 Children often have moments when they feel sad, short-tempered, or withdrawn.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.

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.

If you're struggling with depression, you may feel hopeless and unsure if things can change. I believe that everyone is capable of change, and I'd love to create an individualized treatment plan for you so that you can start to overcome your depression. With depression, the main goal of this treatment plan is often for you to experience more joy and fulfillment in your life. I am a counsellor and an art therapist, so we'll work together to decide if you'd like to incorporate art into your sessions or if you'd prefer to stick with traditional talk therapy.

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.
