Depression has been called the common cold of mental health. We all get it many times in our life. But when it comes and stays, affecting our work, our family, and our enjoyment of life - then it's time to do some deeper work. Medication, exercise, good nutrition and well balanced sleep can all help with recovery, but talk therapy is often the key that turns the lock on the prison cell of depression. In my experience depression often has deep, even unexpected roots. Tracing unresolved anger, guilt, frustration, and other issues may lead to freedom. Call and we can meet to discuss your story. Then we can plan how to get you unstuck, moving forward, and back to a better level of health

Depression can take many forms and it is more than just routine sadness. I view depression as indicator that something needs attention and care - and is not just about pathology. I would explore the context and psycho-social issues. Sometimes depression surprisingly has a function (or productive) and sometimes it can be debilitating. We will explore together from a holistic perspective and help to develop better ways to manage or cope

The emotions and feelings that accompany depression can seem powerful and overwhelming. Although our natural reaction is to bury these feelings they can actually move us toward newfound awareness and healing. Using Jungian Psychotherapy tools your feelings of sadness, anger, hopelessness and fatigue will be expressed in a safe and caring environment. Methods will be used and taught to integrate and transform these emotions. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy may be used to replace worrisome thoughts with healthier and more positive ways of viewing stressors and life events. Education on self-care, relaxation training, proper nutrition and exercise may also be provided.

If talk therapy has seemed to reach its limit you many want to consider an approach that doesn't require talking. Neurofeedback is a wonderful tool that can be used to train your brain out of a depression pattern. All you do is sit back and relax and let the brain sensors do all the work. You will hear a sound or watch a video or show and when your brain is in the right "zone" it will get rewarded. After about 10 to 20 sessions you may notice some changes back to the old you.

Clients can expect to have increased energy, improved mood, and freedom from pain. Clients will experience more balance in their life, more motivation towards living, and improved productivity. These experiences will overflow improving interpersonal relationships. Depression is a symptom of a main problem. In some cases this problem is purely biochemical developing out of an innate genetic or otherwise chemical imbalance, and other times this biochemical imbalance occurs due to circumstances, unbalanced lifestyle, and/or poor coping mechanisms. My main approaches to treating depression are dialectical behaviour therapy, cognitive-behaviour therapy, and short-term dynamic psychotherapy. When a....

Depression can feel solid, stifling and heavy. In counselling, I bring you options to begin to unravel depression's grip. By encouraging your inner desire for happiness and peace, I can help you tip the balance back toward well being. I show you how to discover depression's message - often it is telling us we need to rebalance and let go of old beliefs. This is more than possible for all of us - I support you as you shift toward the life you want. Using gentle, non-traumatic approaches, I offer options for you to craft your own unique journey. When we start to listen deeply to ourselves, depression no longer needs to clobber us - I offer you techniques you can start using today.

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.
