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 want you to know that you do not have to be silent anymore or hide from your truth. I know you walk out the front door of your home and try to put that mask on every day. The mask that tries to tell the world that everything is okay. When people ask how you are, you probably respond saying good, when all you really want to do is scream "not good, not good at all, help me please!" Or maybe you have been stored up in your home and avoiding connections all together because you are tired of pretending that you are okay. I want to say to you, "I got you, I'm here to help, you don't have to pretend or be alone anymore, we really can do this, have faith."

Feeling depressed, discouraged, hopeless or helpless can be a painful "stuck" place to be in. We can help you process and overcome the adversity that contributed to this state of collapse, work through the thwarted survival responses that can underlie depression, well as develop skills to address the negative thoughts, assumptions, self-criticism and limiting core beliefs that might be maintaining your low mood and discouragement. We work with the emotional, mental and physical aspects of depression, using mindfulness, cognitive and body-based approaches that are trauma-focused. Together, we can support you to climb out from the depths, and restore hope and a sense of embodied aliveness.

Depression is all encompassing. It affects all aspects of our life including our physical health, our emotional state, our thinking patterns, our behaviours and reactions, and our relationships. We often lose interest in participating in life and this can lead to feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness. Working together in therapy, we will reconnect you with your world using proven techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy and the mindfulness tradition. Finding meaning, purpose and reconnecting with joy is the ultimate goal.

We overuse the word " depressed" The typical short term "depression" people experience, is entirely different from the physical illness of depression that exhausts, immobilizes and sickens us. Your sad feelings and low moods deserve attention. Thankfully many options move us to enjoying life again. I can help you to navigate the challenges and to assess what resources best suit you. Medication is not for everyone but can be a life saver for many. Let's give you the compassionate attention you deserve. I can help you to decide whether its time for a medical opinion. You have suffered long enough and deserve help now.

Depression can cripple us and many people do not understand how hard it is. We need someone to listen to us and not judge. I like to offer strategies from my book Picture Your Life.

I am Christian but do interfaith work. I do not push my beliefs on anyone. We need to believe in ourselves and then something beyond ourselves.

There is an epidemic of depression and anxiety in our time. From an ecotherapy perspective, there is a lot of discussion about ways our current lifestyles promote depression. Whether it is our pace of life and expectations around productivity, our loss of a sense of deeper community and connection, a loss of a sense of purpose, or a deeply felt but unacknowledged sense of disconnection from the earth we depend on. I find that in subtle moments outside, we discover a rooted aliveness of tuning in to who we are, our deeply felt connections with all of life, and perspective on a greater purpose working through us. It is in facing the depression that we can come to embrace greater meaning.

Depression can change the way you think about yourself and others. It can give you irrational or false thoughts that tend to focus on the negative. It can make it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and can take away enjoyment from the things you once loved. You can feel depression in your physical body, as exhaustion, stomach pains and bowel irritation. It will make you feel like all the good days are gone, but they aren't, there are always better days ahead. I offer a safe space to talk about and work through depression.

Depression can feel like being down a deep hole without any way of getting out. I describe therapy as one of the footholds to help get out of the deep hole of depression and many of the tools used in therapy help clients to create other footholds. Often clients will be encouraged to use other tools to help enhance therapy such as medication, yoga and nutrition. I work with my clients to develop the strategies to create their footholds.

Depression can be mild or debilitation or somewhere in between. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be very effective in reducing the impacts of depression on people's lives. I use CBT enhanced by Narrative Therapy, and sometimes include family members as supports to help people get out from under the oppressive influence of depression. Narrative Therapy is a strength-based, collaborative approach to dealing with problems, such as depression to improving one's outlook on life or helping you to explore and connect with the values, hopes and dreams that are precious to you so that you might better live them out.

There is a difference between feeling 'down' and experiencing clinical depression. If you don't know exactly what's happening, but you just know that you don't feel like getting out of bed, have no interest in the things that used to excite you, and people who care about you are urging you to 'get help'... then email me. I can help you climb out of the dark hole, and find purpose, meaning, joy and 'life' again. I can help you take the small steps required toward the restoration of your health.

Many times I find that people do not take a holistic bio-psycho-social approach to mood issues. My practice is different as I spend a lot of time taking a really detailed look at how you function in home, community and your school/work environments. We do explore themes in your life to date and understand exactly what we are goal setting around (and that is all done in the initial meeting). I can work with other health care providers including your family doctor - with your permission.

Using Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy can improve feelings of self acceptance, self confidence and over all well being. The ability to gain mastery over ones mind, emotions and behaviors can lead to a reduction in symptoms of depression and improve motivation and satisfaction with life. Having an increased capacity to self regulate and make choices rather than react to emotions is also possible with psychotherapy.

While we all have days where we feel sad and 'depressed', if it goes on day after day so that negative thoughts make us feel exhausted, powerless, empty, discouraged and hopeless, then we need help. Leaving depression untreated can lead to several physical and mental complications and even suicide. Fortunately, trained counsellors can assist us in retraining our mind and teach us new skills to challenge depressive thinking so that we can lead a confidently depression free life.

Depression is a common health problem that can affect many areas of a person’s life. There are many contributing factors to depression. Due to a lack of understanding, many people do not seek help; however, depression can be treated effectively with cognitive behavioural counselling. Counselling helps a person understand depression and learn some simple skills to improve mood and overall functioning. These skills help to manage daily problems more effectively and decrease the chances of relapse. Most people experience an improvement in their mood, energy, sleep and relationships. They feel less fearful and anxious, and often feel more confident and optimistic.
