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.

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 is different from simply feeling down or blue. Depression is a mood disorder that affects you in different ways, and may include feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, guilt, and/or worthlessness. Other common symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty focusing, a change in eating or sleeping, and a loss of interest in sex or other pleasurable activities. Severe depression can also lead to thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very effective in helping people overcome depression through changing ways of thinking and relating to the world. I help clients understand the depression and incorporate ways of managing and changing their feelings.

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

Depression can be situational to a loss, disappointment, or acute incident. Depression can also be recurrent, relapsing and remitting. Depression is always parasitic, unpleasant and a dark cloud that can hover and cast shadow over our lives and relationships. Therapy with me seeks to achieve remission of depression and then we will focus on preventing relapse. I see depression as biological, situational and interpersonal. Therapy will explore precipitating stressors, contributory biological factors, and personal factors. Based on this knowledge we explore new ways on interacting with your world seeking to prevent relapse and manage risk factors as they emerge.

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.

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.

In therapy for depression, my clients usually learn strategies and techniques to strengthen their coping abilities, to rebuild their strength and to regain control over their lives. Clients learn how to deal with negative thoughts, how to reframe from negative thoughts using certain behavioral strategies. Clients are taught how to identify symptoms of depression and how to prevent its recurrence.

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.
