Clients will better understand boundaries: how they affect us personally and how not having boundaries contributes to relationship confusion, despair and the general lack of ease of authentic living. Co-morbid with depression is usually some form of a sense of inadequacy or lack of control in one's life - so understanding how personal power and self-esteem fit with good boundaries is helpful to alleviating someone's depression.

When engulfed in the blackness of depression we loose site of the debilitating negative cloud casting despair over all aspects of our life. We come to see our lives solely through the depression lens rather than being able to construct an accurate map of our reality. With psychotherapy we can learn to once again access a more balanced vision of our living that better recognizes the goodness in our lives and provides direction to possibilities. Depending on the level of clinical depression, medication is often recommended temporarily in conjunction with psychotherapy to alleviate depression symptoms and help bring motivation for movement--the client can begin to help themselves

The role of therapy in treating clinical depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Many studies support the idea that therapy can be a powerful treatment for depression. A review published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, for example, concluded that therapy combined with antidepressants worked better than depression medicine alone. Although there are fewer studies of therapy for treatment-resistant depression specifically, many experts still recommend it. One 2007 study found that for people who didn't respond to a specific drug treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy worked as well in reducing symptoms.

When we are feeling depressed, there are several mental mistakes that we are making. So my role as a therapist is to help people correct those mental mistakes behind depression. Once those are corrected, the hoplessness dissipates and hope starts to glimmer. When the client is feeling calm about his/her circumstance, it will then be easy to make him/her feel the way he/she really wants to feel

I teach clients with mild to moderate depression symptoms that depression can often be a messenger from our deepest self and/or a call to action. I actually suggest specific actions that they can take to break out of the depression--inaction cycles. I suggest that they do an "inner dialogue" with the depression and ask it what is the cause of the depression. I suggest that if they cannot get at the "root cause" of the depression that they at least attempt to get to the region of their psyche that the depression is coming from. I suggest hypnosis to them. Research has shown a marked reduction in depression with the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system with hypnosis.

Sadness and Depression are often challenges we may encounter in our lifetime. Feelings, thoughts and behaviors associated with them can at times overwhelm and even paralyze us with their power. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand these feelings, progress through their isolation with them, find a way through their tight hold and learn to live productively again.

I have found the Cognitive/Behavioural model of therapy the most efficient one to use with clients suffering from long term depression. Acute depression responds well to Relational, Experiential and Attachment based models of therapy. Most important however, is a warm, empathic, supportive environment in which to explore and resolve client's needs

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.

I believe that depression is one of the most common mental health issues and I always tell my clients how it is normal to experience emotions like heavy sadness. I will work with you to find the root causes of the depression. We will work to better understand your triggers and how those link to the types of thoughts you are getting. From there we can plan new responses to the thoughts that are the result of a collaborative effort to ensure the new responses will work for you specifically!
