Depression can be situational or come in waves. When it arrives, it can creep in unexpectedly leading us to feel like something is just wrong with us. It's something we can have, not something we are. And just like any other illness, we can treat depression with understanding its symptoms and where is stems from. We can learn coping skills and tools to intervene the depression and work towards new hope. It can feel defeating at times, but I want to be there to support you to keep moving forward.

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-What it is and what it isn’t. Depression is a common illness worldwide, with more than 264 million people affected. Peoples’ experiences and feelings can differ greatly from mood fluctuations to some feeling suicidal. Affected people can suffer greatly and function poorly at work, at school, or in their relationships. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds. We know at some point, everyone experiences problems with irritability, sadness, or self-blame. Such responses usually don’t last that long. Clinical depression occurs when these feelings, along with a set of additional symptoms, become intense or remain for several weeks.

Depression is not pleasant. People who suffer from depression probably do not want to stay in a depressive state, but they lack the tools to move out of the negativity. Coming to a therapist when you are feeling depressed is the first step to overcoming these emotions. It means that you are ready to change your pattern of thoughts and behaviours and are willing to seek help to assist you in doing so. Together we can make a plan to help you identify when you are moving towards a depressive state and keep you from going down the unwanted path. We can help you identify the things in life that influence you positively and work towards focusing on the things that give you strength.

Depression is a sign that we are no longer able to adapt to the complex and stressful world we live in. Our biological bodies and brains were not designed for the types of financial, cultural, social, and relational stressors we live with today. I see depression as a pivotal moment in one's life - as a reminder to start listening to our body, our mind, and spirit. If you are feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, sad, fearful, stuck or on autopilot in your life, I can help you to get at the root of these feelings and work through them to attain relief.

Having symptoms of depression can be devistating. People often feel low in motivation to do the things they used to love doing. I can help you examine what life circumstances may be contributing to how you are feeling. We can also uncover stressors and pressures that you may be experiencing, as well as lifestyle choices that may be contributing to your symptoms. I can help support you in your feelings of low mood, and help envision and create a life where you feel more motivated, fulfilled and more aligned with your life goals.

Depression is among the most common and devastating health conditions a person can face. Fortunately, there are treatments that are scientifically supported to provide relief to individuals suffering from depression. In particular, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is among the most researched and proven for mild to moderate depression. At Meristem, we strive to incorporate CBT interventions into individually tailored treatment plans that are wholistic and comprehensive because research and clinical experience has shown us that this eclectic approach gives us the best results at recovery for clients of all ages.

Depression is often the result of loss. It comprises a myriad feelings of despair and isolation and loneliness and lethargy which sever us from loved ones who we feel don't understand. So we don't talk ..or don't want to talk. Only if that depression would just go away. It can be a chemical imbalance from a family history or from reactive loss, it still isolates us. My approach is to help you feel you can trust to talk and explore the source of the "disconnect". I will listen without judging and guide you to express the "hidden" feelings that congregate into "depression". Gradually you will begin to understand and learn effective ways to handle and manage the various feelings of depression.

Clients with depression often describe feeling as if they are strangers in their own body. Thoughts, emotions, and actions can all feel as if they are happening behind a veil, and things such as joy, peace, and fulfillment can sometimes be absent. At Whiteboard, we count it a privilege to help people fighting depression get their lives back. Our process involves identifying the core elements of our clients' thinking and emotional processes in order to help elevate them out of the darkness which surrounds them. These processes are rooted in Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and have proven successful in offering clients the brighter future they deserve.

In working with individuals who struggle with depression, I primarily use a cognitive behavioural therapeutic (CBT) approach. The principal aim of this approach is to increase awareness that thoughts and behaviours drive emotion. In addition, the goal is to increase consciousness of distorted perceptions. That is, often individuals who struggle with depression do not think accurately, and if their thoughts are not accurate, than they cannot be trusted. The purpose of CBT is to bring awareness to cognitive distortions and then teach individuals how to rebalance their thoughts to be more accurate.

Depression - it's a word we hear often and it's a condition that many of us experience. Depression can show up in lots of ways - maybe you always feel sad, or your motivation is gone, perhaps making it through a day seems impossible sometimes. Regardless of how you experience depression, counselling can be helpful. Approaches like CBT, which is part of how I work with depression, can help you identify and challenge negative thought patterns and distorted thinking, and unlock new, refreshing and positive perspectives on your life. Therapy for depression is a step towards improved mental well-being and a chance to work with a professional who can guide you through the healing process.

Depression has become an epidemic in our world...hard things happen, biochemistry responds and depression can set in---it can brew over many years with many causal factors [chronic childhood difficulties and learning], or happen quickly [reactive depression]. It changes everything and does not magically go away---it takes time; reframing with active cognitive work; diligent self-care; a consult with your GP; possibly medication and counselling. Depression often can be held firm with a constant focus and depressive rumination on the past. Therapy can help loosen our grip on the things wee cannot change.
