Depression is a dark secret and a burden for so many. Unless one has experience with it, either directly or indirectly, it can be hard to understand and harder to cope with as a result. Many suffer in silence. I work with individuals (and loved ones) to help give meaning to one's unique experience of depressive moods and to clarify its effect and identify factors that exacerbate and reduce it's severity. Cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness can be effective tools for developing improved coping and ability to live with mood problems. The goal is to reduce suffering and enhance coping.

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.

Depression is one of the most prevalent issues I work with. My approach to begin with is to help the clients mobilize their strengths which at times they unable to see. I also encourage them to learn and develop improved coping strategies. Once this is in place we can explore some of the deeper issues which contribute to their feelings of depression. Often the deeper issues evolve from painful past experiences of trauma, unresolved issues, and or distorted perceptions or beliefs . Through the combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution focused Therapy, and Mindfulness I can help clients resolve troubling issues, build strength and learn to cope and feel better.

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.

Drawing from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, we can work together to truly understand the connection between your thoughts, moods and behaviours. I provide and recommend practical tools and techniques that will help you control, manage and change your low feelings.

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!

I believe you are the expert in your own experience of depression. I also believe that together we can learn what seems to be connected to those depressive symptoms. Being heard and accepted as you are, without judgment, is an essential step in recovery and building forward momentum. The pacing is not dictated by me, however. Instead, we will figure out together what seems to be reasonable, drawing upon compassionate-focussed therapy, narrative therapy and solutions-focussed therapy as well as other techniques that seem appropriate for you.

In order to gain an accurate and complete understanding of my client, I conduct thorough initial assessments on their presenting symptoms of depression. Treatment for depression usually includes CBT techniques, including but not limited to Thought Records and Cognitive Restructuring. I regularly assess my clients well-being and and the majority report feeling better and reduced symptoms after as little as four sessions.
