In any given year, depression will be present in 4 – 5 % of the Canadian population, and between 7.9 and 8.6% will experience depression during their lifetimes. (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2002) Despite its prevalence, there remains a stigma around depression. Untreated, depression can wreak havoc in a person's life, but with the right supports, (medication, if needed, and psychotherapy) depression can be managed and people can lived productive and meaningful lives. I provide a safe place for my clients factors which may be affecting their mood , and work with my clients to bring about necessary lifestyle changes and to move greater emotional health.

Depression is a well-known and well-used word in our everyday language today. Many people experience some form of depression in their life or have a family member, friend or colleague who is experiencing depression. In order to make strides towards feeling better, we must first understand your history with depression, your triggers or things that make your symptoms worse, and understand your patterns of thinking and behaving. Once we understand these things we can begin making small and manageable behavioural changes to manage your symptoms and hopefully improve your mood and ability to cope.

The role of therapy in treating clinical depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Many studies support the idea that therapy can be a powerful treatment for depression. A review published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, for example, concluded that therapy combined with antidepressants worked better than depression medicine alone. Although there are fewer studies of therapy for treatment-resistant depression specifically, many experts still recommend it. One 2007 study found that for people who didn't respond to a specific drug treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy worked as well in reducing symptoms.

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. I will 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 me guide you through this challenging terrain!

Depression is not just the blues. It can feel like you are in a dark place with no window or door. Let us help you find the door by offering an assessment and treatment plan tailored to your needs. Cognitive behavioural therapies can help. If a medical assessment will help or you are receiving assistance from a physician we will work with your doctor to take you a step closer to letting the light in to stay.

Depression can be devestating for the person who experiences it, however, when looked at through a slightly different lense it can also be an opportunity to make the changes your body, mind, emotions, and spirit are demanding of you. I have supported many clients to recover from depression and live their lives with a renewed sense of meaning and hope.

When we are feeling depressed, there are several mental mistakes that we are making. So my role as a therapist is to help people correct those mental mistakes behind depression. Once those are corrected, the hoplessness dissipates and hope starts to glimmer. When the client is feeling calm about his/her circumstance, it will then be easy to make him/her feel the way he/she really wants to feel

It has been said that most depression is "anger turned inwards or a feeling of loss of control in one's life". Psychotherapy can help you process some of their painful past and regain control of your life. Where there is depression there is also anxiety/fear. We can take a look at some of the contributing factors to the anxiety. Sometimes your interpretation of the past has negative results to your present day life. Therapy looks at at what those interpretations are and correct them where they need correction. Using Family Systems Therapy, CBT and Emotion-Focused Therapy you will see what they think, feel and believe.

One of the most frequent reasons one will see a counsellor/therapist is for depression treatment. Therapy for depression works in many ways through emotional support, problem solving, examining and changing thinking styles (particularly lowering the amount of negative rumination), checking needs are met, looking at behaviour, and helping improve relationship skills. I will help you think about your problems in new and more empowering ways. I will help you to identify and draw on your own resources. Together we will work towards increasing your self confidence and independence.

In therapy for depression, my clients usually learn strategies and techniques to strengthen their coping abilities, to rebuild their strength and to regain control over their lives. Clients learn how to deal with negative thoughts, how to reframe from negative thoughts using certain behavioral strategies. Clients are taught how to identify symptoms of depression and how to prevent its recurrence.

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.
