Research shows that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is very effective for treating depression. Our therapists at Elim Counselling are trained in understaning the cognitive and behavioral factors that lead to and maintain depression. By using this model of therapy we have been able to help clients modify maladaptive thinking patterns and self sabotaging behaviours that are often part of the cycle of depression.

Depression can be devestating for the person who experiences it, however, when looked at through a slightly different lense it can also be an opportunity to make the changes your body, mind, emotions, and spirit are demanding of you. I have supported many clients to recover from depression and live their lives with a renewed sense of meaning and hope.

Therapy can be a place where clients can explore the blocks they are experiencing to feeling ok. Sometimes such things as early childhood experiences, trauma [recent or historic], challenging work situations, feeling overwhelmed in life, and interpersonal and relationship struggles can contribute to feeling disempowered, hopeless, helpless, numb, exhausted, and disinterested in life. Being able to feel supported, to explore and come to understand what is happening, to explore the body's and the nervous system's role in how one is feeling, to speak freely can often help.

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!

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.

What too many people with depression seem to get wrong is the idea that when they "feel better," they will then get on with doing this or that. What I help my clients to understand is that it works the opposite way...in order to move past depression a person needs to take action, even when not feeling like it, in order to start to feel better, which can then encourage the person on to further action and hopefully create an upwards spiral. As well, I like to differentiate whether the depression is situational or endogenous.
