Depression can come from stress and emotional reactions to situations such as job loss, relationship loss, death of a loved one, etc. It can also be caused by genetic and nutritional deficiencies leading to a reduction in critical neurotransmitters. When working with depression I am mindful of the many facets of depression, and while working with emotions and situations, I also consider the need for consultations with specialists related to sleep, nutrition, and coping which may require supplements and /or medication to treat. I am a member of "Psychotherapy Matters" an organization which can link Psychotherapists with consultations of Psychiatrists within a session with minimal wait time.

I provide a safe and confidential space to explore the underlying root causes of your depression. During this exploration, deeper repressed emotions or memories may surface. Addressing these deeper layers that may be outside of your immediate awareness can help you to move through the depression and into a new phase in life, with a greater sense of integration and possibility.

Depression is the most common mental-health disturbance worldwide and falls within a wide continuum of severity. There is an equally broad range of causes, including grief and loss and absense of a supportive community. Some believe it is biological. Whatever the cause, some individuals feel depression more acutely and more frequently than others. Current research recognizes the benefits of psychotherapy on positive treatment outcomes. My approach is to recognize the life experiences that have contributed to depression and to help address directly the feelings underneath. To find relief and hope is sometimes a matter of learning to dig deeper into feelings with help from a psychotherapist.

With over 17 years experience working with children, youth and families who have experienced trauma, the co-occurrance of depression as a consequence of surviving abuse has been clinical concern I have supported many individuals with in the past. Working from a trauma-informed lens, I believe that the symptoms individuals experience are an adaptation to surviving traumatic or challenging life events. I am devoted to supporting you to reevaluate the protective and adaptive nature of the depressive symptoms you may experience. I will assist you to build upon internal and external resources, expand upon your current coping strategies, and work towards the goal of on-going growth and healing.

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 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 can be lonely, isolating and sometimes times frightening. Lying alone in the dark and knowing everyone is living their life can feel isolating and negative. Depression tricks the individual into thinking that there is no way out...that they are stuck...that no one understands. When actually the opposite is true. Approximately 1 out of 4 people have experienced depression or extreme stress. They are not alonen

The purpose of depression counselling or depression therapy is to help alter the way you think and react to situations. Depression typically displays thought that focus on a severe inability to perform daily functions, very low mood, personal helplessness, and other symptoms mentioned above. We want to change this way of thinking to a more normalized or more helpful thought process, through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This involves focusing on a more realistic likelihood of various outcomes, and on the ability to cope and problem-solve challenging circumstances. By changing the way you think, we are able to also eliminate the physical symptoms associated with your depression.

Though depression is often thought of as a kind of stuck sadness, it can disguise itself in many ways: intense anger, social withdrawal, "workaholism", physical pain, lack of interest or motivation, numbness or indifference. In therapy, we'll take a two-pronged approached to address the symptoms and causes of your depression. We'll explore the underlying thinking and feeling mechanism behind your depression while co-developing an action plan to work through the "stuckness" in your day-to-day life.

We all experience feeling down at times. But a temporary case of the blues has nothing to do with a real depression. True depression is not the blues, sadness or even grief. It is an overwhelming despair so bleak that those who experience it say that it is the worse pain they have ever endured. The good news is that depression is a treatable illness and those who received treatment have an excellent chance of recovery. In my work I use cognitive-behaviour and insight oriented approaches to help create a shift. Since one episode of depression greatly increases the risk of having another episode, there is evidence that seeking therapy may prevent future episodes.
