Solutions and supportive appraoches to effectively help people suffering from depressed mood include, cognitive-behavioural and narrative therapy, often combined with interpersonal /relationship assessment utilizing a family and social systems approach. These therapies are well grounded in clinical research and literature. Through a guided exploration of thoughts, feelings and behaviours related to sadness and depression, people can identify the factors contributing to imbalances in mood, thereby discovering solutions and strategies for positive cognitive shifting, behavioural changes and spiritual growth. While the work is challenging, it can also be light-hearted and even fun at times !

Do you know when you feel depressed? Do you recognize the painful inner emotions that you can physically feel in your body? The feeling of depression is one that anyone can experience from time to time. However, if you find yourself frequently down in mood, not interested in your daily tasks or people, feeling isolated, crawling back under the covers or pouring another drink to make the pain go away, you could benefit from some supportive and caring counselling. I will help you deal with the emotional pains and isolation you are experiencing by working together to create or restore the thoughts, feelings and spirit that is meaningful and important for you to have in your life.

Mindfulness-based therapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) are the primary approaches I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing depression. For clients experiencing depression, it is important to realize that most feelings of depression are the result of, in some, reliving the pain from the past. If you are experiencing depression, your therapy will include learning to recognize the those mental and emotional places where you are 'stuck' in the pain from the past, and learn to release it. If you are on anti-depressants, therapy will also assist in managing your depression.
