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.

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.

Registered Marriage and family Therapist, Certified EMDR

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

Many people experience a depressed mood during their life when they feel limited in finding the joy, focus, energy and achievements they used to enjoy. Depression can affect many areas of living and you deserve to get support in striving to bring back your hope and drive for accomplishments. I work with individuals and families to come to greater understanding of the struggles and strengths unique to their situations, consider meanings limiting choices, and find and act on ways to gain back one’s life from the influence of sadness. I am experienced supporting those grieving loss or navigating life changes or difficult situations. Your healing journey can benefit from compassionate support

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.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, Ontario

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

Depression Counselor

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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!

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.
