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.

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!

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 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. They help people recover from lows they have had for years. The approaches I use have all been proven scientifically to work. I also offer faith-based counseling. 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. For some of us, it is God for others it is their family, work or some project. Please call I can see you within 3 days. My fees are flexible if you are not insured. if you are they are covered.

Depression needs to be carefully examined in the context of one's life, past and current coping skills. Rhonda has extensive knowledge and skill in helping people to understand their depression, gain fresh insights about their lives and process those past or present events that may be contributing factors. She is strongly empathetic and intuitive and guides people through a process of coming to terms with their condition and navigating their way towards a "new" normal state. She often uses EMDR as part of the process, a technique which is highly effective in treating anxiety and depression.

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 can be understood as a weight or gravity which is pulling the person back into themselves. This has been made necessary because they have moved too far away from their centred and true self. My work in this area is to help the person identify and affirm this deepest centre of Self. This entails going more deeply into the feelings of depression, understanding what has been pushed down through the depression, and working to bring it into the light.

Depression can rob of us of so many things- energy, relationships, joy and purpose. It convinces us that things will never change and that it will always win. In our therapy sessions we will examine how the depression convinces you to stop fighting it. We can evaluate your depressed cycle and begin to put a plan into place that will help you overcome it. I will create a place of trust and nurture and together we will show you that you do have a purpose, you can experience joy and renewed energy for your life and relationships. It is hard work but let’s work together to reconnect you with your inner strength to overcome the strong hold depression has on you.

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.

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.
