When coming to counselling for depression, I will help you come to a place of renewed hope, and a place of greater acceptance of yourself. I will listen to your experience with depression and together we will seek to identify the source of the low mood and what we can do to enhance the way you feel and think about yourself, others and society. Also, we will discover what coping strategies would be most effective for you in increasing your overall mood; and learning how to stabilize it over time.

When treating a child or adolescent with depression the first thing will be to assess if they are at risk of harm to themselves or others and whether hospitalization is necessary to ensure safety. Along these ends is a careful examination of the severity of symptoms. Is your child or adolescent lacking energy? is his/ her grades dropping? Is she being bullied? Cyberbullied? How is his appetite? How is his sleep? These are a few of the behaviours to watch for. With young children a combination of play and cognitive behavioural therapy will be used. With adolescents expressive arts therapy, narrative therapy, or sometimes dialectical behaviour therapy is helpful.

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

My primary approach to the treatment of depression is to explore, in order to find the core issues or stressful events causing the present symptoms. Once the main contributory factors have been identified, I support my clients through a process of honestly and openly expressing their feelings and thoughts patterns. I am able to teach them effective coping skills in order to be able to function in the present, and possibly, resolve the symptoms of depression with time.

Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of the process of life. But when emptiness and hopelessness take hold and won’t go away, it may be depression. Depression can make you feel helpless, despair, or empty and numb. Some people describe depression as “living in a black hole”. The key to recovery is to start with small changes and take things one day at a time. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day and draw on the support of other people.

Depression, that heavy fog that keeps us from joy and pleasure & makes life senseless. It usually stems from past wounds that have not healed. My approach uses a warm and judgement free relationship that enables the client to gain self acceptance & empowers them to change what is making them feel stuck. I would focus on using Mindfulness based-CBT to reconnect with the present in a new way. You may also include somatic treatment, a brain-body intervention that retrains the brain's relaxation response for immediate results.

Mindfulness-based therapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) are the primary approaches I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing depression. For clients experiencing depression, it is important to realize that most feelings of depression are the result of, in some, reliving the pain from the past. If you are experiencing depression, your therapy will include learning to recognize the those mental and emotional places where you are 'stuck' in the pain from the past, and learn to release it. If you are on anti-depressants, therapy will also assist in managing your depression.

Depression is a normal human behaviour which typically indicates the need to slow down and spend time on "refueling" yourself. Depression becomes clinical when ignored and the emotion begins to interfere with everyday functioning. In a nurturing and caring environment we begin the slow process of making that person buoyant. We set up small achievable goals decided on by the client. The goal is to teach them how to accept, listen to their emotion and take action long before clinical depression.

If you are looking to this page chances are you know that life is not as enjoyable as you would like it can be. One of the symptoms of depression is feeling unmotivated so congratulation on getting out of that trap and start looking for help. Depression may be a result of other underlying issues you may be carrying for a long time. Many times I noticed accumulated anger in patients which are not able to express it in a constructive way. When this anger is directed to themselves it can result in depression. Together we can identify what is triggering and perpetuating it and we can change the course out of what feels like an emotional trap. I will be me pleasure to witness your growth.

Do you know when you feel depressed? Do you recognize the painful inner emotions that you can physically feel in your body? The feeling of depression is one that anyone can experience from time to time. However, if you find yourself frequently down in mood, not interested in your daily tasks or people, feeling isolated, crawling back under the covers or pouring another drink to make the pain go away, you could benefit from some supportive and caring counselling. I will help you deal with the emotional pains and isolation you are experiencing by working together to create or restore the thoughts, feelings and spirit that is meaningful and important for you to have in your life.

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.

In L3P 1Y7 - Nearby to Brooklin.

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing, depression - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand your depression, yourself and how just being bad feelings is the first step towards moving past them.

I will help you gain insight into why you are feeling this way, and coach you on strategies to improve your mood.

Many years ago depression was called melancholia and was not considered so negatively as it is in our current "performance" focused culture. We are expected to be "up" continuously in today's busy life-styles, with work, children, relationships, and even in our playtime. The result of this sort of expectation can be debilitating and certainly can lead to long bouts of feeling out of control, unfulfilled, unmotivated and ultimately immobilized. Depression can certainly be dealt with through very effective therapeutic techniques. I work with clients to better understand the root cause of their sadness and help them to look at the possible meaning behind their depression and how to best cope.
