I work with depression often, using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and EEG Neurofeedback (brain training) to address thought distortions and focus on awareness of your triggers and self-care. Neurofeedback is biofeedback that gently and powerfully shifts brain functioning to improve mood and focus. I understand there are many different types of depression and I will work with your unique needs.

Depression often comes as a result of not feeling entitled to claim our life and set boundaries to create safety in our life. Instead of feelings like we can grow and become more of who we are, we get caught in the reverse, where we feel more and more that we should shrink and lose our aliveness. We work with you in a process of recognizing your feelings and getting them to work for you rather than against you. Depression is about dis-empowerment, but we become empowered when we can make sense of our inner world and use our feelings to strengthen ourselves and make the changes we need to make in our life. No need to go it alone, let us guide you through this challenging terrain!

Depression is the monster that hides in the shadows waiting for any opportunity to remind you that you are bad, worthless, and not good enough. You may have good days, but it is always there in the background, waiting to pounce on a thought, feeling, worry, situation...waiting to sink you with self-doubt, self-criticism, and self-hatred. I help clients recognize, understand, and manage this depression monster. I believe that everyone has within them a core ability to fight this monster via self-understanding, compassion, and acceptance. I work with clients to help them implement effective strategies to disarm and disable the depression monster.

Depression can be debilitating for an individual to live with as it takes over their life and is not something they asked to have and are confused with why they can't get out of the rut. As a therapist, I know it is important to start where the client is at as well as recognize when implementing strategies of change is important. My approach is to offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy where you will learn coping skills and in a safe environment be exposed to situations that will increase your self awareness to the point you are able to manage the emotions.

My understanding is that depression can be the result of many things. If you have suffered loss, either recent or past and this has not been resolved, it is a normal part of the grief process. If you have anger that you have not been able to express safely, it can turn inward and cause depression. Many folks experience "seasonal" depression, and still others "situational" depression. I offer you a safe space to explore your feelings and to understand the possible causes of your depression, as well as strategies to help lessen the impact of this on your life so that you can move forward towards your goals.

Depression is often our body/minds’ way of saying “slow down and look at things that may be negatively affecting your life.” An unfortunate side effect of this coping strategy is that it can prevent us from having the motivation or clarity to work on things that might be helpful. The work we do together will examine past and present barriers to living a more fulfilling life. This could include processing past traumas, rethinking unhelpful behaviour patterns or coping strategies. As depression subsides you may notice an increase in motivation, a desire to connect more with others, and positive mood.

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.

I approach depression somatically by using body sensations to reconnect the self to its emotional experience. Together, we gently explore the body sensations that are coming up and what they want us to know about the current experience. With this, we can uncover what the body is defending itself against and what core emotions are being avoided and how to tend to them instead.

Learning to talk about your symptoms of depression can open doors to a deeper and more compassionate relationship with yourself. Managing and understanding what lies beneath your symptoms of depression can help you open the doors to feelings that you didn't realize you were holding onto... feelings that need a voice, and that are screaming for your attention but can't be heard under the weight of your depression. I can help you safely explore your emotions, implement the changes you can, and learn to have a stronger relationship with yourself.

Depression can rob one of energy, motivation, clarity, and the ability to make decisions. Often described as a dark cloud, depression can leave people in a bad place, feeling that they do not have much to contribute in life. Therapy has been found to be one of the most effective ways to improve functioning in those who have depression. By having someone truly listen, without distraction, talking about it can make things much better.

Depression is a thief. It takes and steals and robs a person of hope, happiness and essentially life. Depression can have many causes, so it is important to note that sometimes treatment must be collaborative through both a family physician and a counsellor. It is my hope, that with working together, we can formulate a plan to manage the problem situation and restore a sense of well-being.

There are a number of issues that may present in depression, including loss, grief, trauma, and/or any experiences or learning that may impact the sense of self. Depression can be helped by direct cognitive approaches, challenging and guiding past the tendencies to judge self; by behavioural approaches that guide or help back to meaningful activity; by exploratory approaches that help look at events or learning that may have led to the current view of world, self, or future; and/or by approaches that simply support or help by instilling hope, infusing a sense that change can occur (in fact, does naturally occur), and that current distress will not last indefinitely.

Depression leads to disconnection: disconnection from the closest people who love you, from your environment, from your own feelings and emotions and ultimately from being engaged in life. Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness are the earmarks for depression. I have a very high rate of success working with people with depression. My approach is eclectic but mostly grounded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. See my Self Assessment for Depression test on my website.
