Depression is a normal human behaviour which typically indicates the need to slow down and spend time on "refueling" yourself. Depression becomes clinical when ignored and the emotion begins to interfere with everyday functioning. In a nurturing and caring environment we begin the slow process of making that person buoyant. We set up small achievable goals decided on by the client. The goal is to teach them how to accept, listen to their emotion and take action long before clinical depression.

Aside from bio-chemical imbalances in one's body, depression can arise from a number of situational and relational factors. We can explore how any of these can be understood, responded to, and lived with in a way which can help to alleviate depressive challenges. It can be difficult to gain awareness of what's not right, and how to get things right, when you're battling just to survive. Our work together can help to clarify what's happening, and how to put helpful coping practices to work.

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing, depression - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand your depression, yourself and how just being bad feelings is the first step towards moving past them.

Many years ago depression was called melancholia and was not considered so negatively as it is in our current "performance" focused culture. We are expected to be "up" continuously in today's busy life-styles, with work, children, relationships, and even in our playtime. The result of this sort of expectation can be debilitating and certainly can lead to long bouts of feeling out of control, unfulfilled, unmotivated and ultimately immobilized. Depression can certainly be dealt with through very effective therapeutic techniques. I work with clients to better understand the root cause of their sadness and help them to look at the possible meaning behind their depression and how to best cope.

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

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.

In a safe atmosphere we will examine and discuss historical early and current triggers, and work to resolve their effects on your mood and situation. We dismantle self-defeating ingrained beliefs that prevent inspired living, fulfillment and action. Depression can adversely effect one’s relationships with others including partners, friends, and family, making them feel pushed away. Conversely, depression can be triggered by relationships. In these depressions, we'll focus on relationships and improving them, regardless of the issues. The outcome is often experienced as a clarity of mind, a sense of liberation, confidence, love, better relationsihips, productivity, and overall happiness.
