Making sure that if the depression is chemical in nature is very important to get a medical/psychiatric evaluation. Many of symptoms of depression stem from unresolved self esteem issues and early childhood issues. Changing the way we self talk and how we view self and who we operate in the world can change our mood state. Being more aware of the cognitive nature of ones perceptions allow the individual make significant changes in how they feel.

I've been treating depression and bipolar since 1996 and it is what I do best from chronic lifelong depression to a sad mood that is based on temporary circumstances. I am a constant researcher because I write for several columns a month and keynote speaker at conferences so I am up to date on the implementation of current evidence based therapies that produce results. I am also in an office with a psychiatrist and two psychiatric nurse practitioners if medication management is needed. We all work together providing continuity of care. I am also a top referral source for several local hospitals when a patient is discharged due to depression, bipolar, and anxiety disorders.

Depressive symptoms can stem from a variety of sources in an individual’s life usually reflecting a sense of loss. While medications can be helpful, it’s the behavioral symptoms associated with depression that can leave a lingering impact even after the depressive symptoms have stated to improve. Being pulled into depressive experiences over and over reflects both habits that can be difficult to break and/or subconscious issues that have yet to be addressed. Through processes such as hypnotherapy that address the whole person, we are able to capture a wider range of challenges and help the individual to regain the ground lost to he depressive illness.

People who struggle with depression often report feeling overwhelmed with life or less interested in activities. They struggle with maintaining focus and have difficulty in interpersonal relationships. While there are many types of therapy for the treatment of depression, today, most people with depression can be treated successfully with antidepressant medications, “talk” therapy (psychotherapy), or a combination of the two. Talk therapy is effective because it helps you to understand and work through the root of depression, helping you to identify patterns of thinking and behaving that underlie personal difficulties. With therapy, you will be able to live in accordance with your values.

People may medicate their depression with TV, alcohol, food, isolation, or excessive sleep. One definition of depression is "anger turned inward." Talking with a psychologist is one of the best methods to understand your down moods, unusual thoughts, and self-defeating beliefs. Friends may say, "Get over it" about your jealousy toward your sister or your sadness over your girlfriend who texted "it's over" 3 months ago. If you are on medication for already-diagnosed depression, therapy is important to bring new ideas into your brain. If you are considering medication, start with talk therapy. Don't keep waiting for "it" to go away. What's at the bottom of your depression?

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.

Many of the 17 million adult Americans suffering from depression during any one-year period do not recognize that they have a condition that can be treated effectively. Everyone feels sad at times or grieves over upsetting life experiences such as loss of employment, death of a loved one, or divorce. Most of these feelings of grief tend to become less intense on their own as time goes by. Depression occurs when these feelings of extreme sadness or despair last for at least two weeks or longer and when they interfere with daily living. Depression tends to make people feel helpless, hopeless, and blame themselves for having these feelings. People with depression may feel overwhelmed, exhausted, have difficulty sleeping, and stop participating in...(view profile to read more)

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.

Karen’s approach in assisting people suffering from depression varies with each person. She initially searches for the reasons causing the depression, and together she and the client will pursue the changes needed to alleviate the symptoms. Karen uses the word picture with her clients of viewing depression as being down in a valley, and by putting the accepted interventions into practice, she can assist them in climbing out of the valley. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well researched therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating people suffering from depression, and this is the intervention Karen most often uses along with other accepted techniques.

Feelings of sadness, worthlessness and hopelessness can be overwhelming and consuming. Depression is terrifying, but it is also treatable. Depression can present very differently for individuals, so thorough assessment and individual treatment planning are important. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy interventions to identify negative core beliefs and self-talk that contribute to depression. EMDR is effective for depression by reprocessing early core memories having a lifelong impact.
