Depression can zap you of all kinds of joy in your life. But it doesn't have to.... I work with clients who suffer from depression and the work is to get your story out, process what is going on then create ways to manage the emotion better. Mindfulness and positive thinking can help offset the debilitating symptoms of depression. The worst thing a person can do with depression is keep it a secret. Don't keep it sealed up inside, get help and talk about what is going on in your life.

An experience of depression is many times connected with a desire to live in this world in ways that are emotionally safe and satisfying. Sometimes a titanic conflict exists in our inner world between a presence who seeks deep emotional safety for us, and a presence who wants us to live and enjoy life to its fullest in the world. When this conflict becomes seemingly unsolvable, a sense of hopelessness can occur. My techniques are effective in helping you in resolving this conflict in satisfying ways, without drugs. We can experience emotional safety, and live the life we deeply want.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

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.
