It has been said that most depression is "anger turned inwards or a feeling of loss of control in one's life". Psychotherapy can help you process some of their painful past and regain control of your life. Where there is depression there is also anxiety/fear. We can take a look at some of the contributing factors to the anxiety. Sometimes your interpretation of the past has negative results to your present day life. Therapy looks at at what those interpretations are and correct them where they need correction. Using Family Systems Therapy, CBT and Emotion-Focused Therapy you will see what they think, feel and believe.

Depression not only affects your mood state, but also your -- *behavior, *the way you look at yourself, *relationship with people around you and *physical and organic function. Gestalt therapy emphasizes your capacity to develop your potential. In therapy with me change will take place through the relational experience, and increased awareness, this process, is what gives meaning to discovery to you. In Gestalt therapy, what is considered is your totality, a combination of your sensorial, affective, intellectual, social, and spiritual dimensions (Brownell, 2010). Studies show that the patients treated with Gestalt demonstrated fewer depressive symptoms following the intervention.

Depression is an insidious companion, and can creep its way in without us realizing for some time. Shifting a depressed mindset can be extremely difficult but neuroimaging studies have shown that by practicing mindfulness we can begin to alter those well-trodden neural pathways and shift our neurochemistry by promoting the production of neurotransmitters linked to feelings of happiness. Psychotherapy can help you identify mindfulness activities and other tools that can help to promote the production of these neurotransmitters and deliver results rooted in neuroscience. I can offer an alternative perspective and act as the catalyst you need to begin making the shift out of depression.

In many cases, I view depression as an "alarm bell" that tells the individual that there is something wrong in their life. Have they turned their anger in life toward themselves? Are they not living their best, or preferred, life? Is there something that's happened in their life that is getting them down, but they don't realize how much power it truly has? Depression can also be about learned helplessness, or having a sense, through experience, that there is no point in even trying at something. Such helplessness can come from feeling defeated, feeling significant guilt about something, & even from self-defeating 'self-talk' that an individual engages in (without completely realizing it).

Depression can leave us feeling hopeless and unable to function all that well not to mention the isolation resulting. The key is to then recognize those automatic thoughts emerging and how they may be serving to influence our mood at any given moment. If we have a tendency to generally catastrophize and only see a situation from a worst case scenario, it will serve to leave us feeling bad. The key is learning to effectively examine those triggers and subsequently how can we best challenge the reasoning behind. It comes down to being proactive about our mental health and not willingly accept a negative outlook when there may be another far more healthier perspective or a lens to see from.

Feelings of low mood and depression can take a toll on us emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Counselling support can alleviate these challenging symptoms by exploring the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that cause us to feel "stuck." Often times, changing one of these elements will have an effect on another; Counselling serves to facilitate the exploration of this process in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space.
