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 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.

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."

A major depressive disorder — usually just called “depression” — is different than the “blues”. Someone experiencing depression is grappling with feelings of severe despair over an extended period of time. Almost every aspect of their life can be affected, including their emotions, physical health, relationships and work. For people with depression, it does not feel like there is a “light at the end of the tunnel” — there is just a long, dark tunnel. Getting help is part of the recovery. There is hope for those suffering from depression and those who have a loved one suffering this often debilitating disease. A therapist will assist you in your journey towards a life without depression.

Depression hurts and is becoming epidemic in our society. However, depression is a treatable condition and there are effective approaches that can help you break the cycle of chronic unhappiness so you can keep moving forward, learn how to face life’s challenges with greater resilience and regain a sense of well-being. I work from the best evidence- based therapies for depression: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Interpersonal therapy (IPT), Solution Focused Therapy and Art Therapy to help you overcome the mental habits leading to despair, rumination, and self-blame so you can repossess the sense of hope, joy and life balance.

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. We 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 us guide you through this challenging terrain!

Using Interpersonal Therapy we will review your relationships with others, and the impact of these on your mental health. We will explore behaviour activation techniques that can aid in reducing avoidant patterns that have resulted due to stress induced by external (environmental) or internal (our perspectives and view of self) factors. In addition, if you are someone that struggles with intense emotions we can explore how to use emotion regulation and distress tolerance techniques to decrease the stress level and learn various coping strategies.

Using a client-centered approach, I work with individuals to explore depression, the impacts of it and work towards changed and improved mood. By focusing on thoughts, feelings and behaviours, I help clients to gain a better understanding of their depression and provide tools to assist in recovery. Using elements of CBT, DBT and EFT, I tailor my approach to best suit each individual client.

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.

The symptoms of hopelessness and being unloveable are deeply disturbing, but with evidenced-based approach of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, we can undo our limiting beliefs about our selves, others, and the world. This will likely reduce symptoms and encourage clients to behave in ways that activate their world towards life that is positive, meaningful and small yet powerful moments of happiness. We will also look at the environmental concerns (i.e. anti-oppressive lens on systems of discrimination) as well as internal capacity in exploring important negative emotions.
