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.

Christian Counselling Ottawa

Registered Psychotherapists

303-63 Glencoe Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Our therapists are trained to be attuned to client needs and to establish a therapeutic bond which increases the likelihood of treating depression. There is not a “one-size fits all” approach. In one approach, we explore the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that contribute to depression. Many therapists focus on underlying factors from the past that may contribute to current depression. Sometimes the focus is more on the approach whereby the clients are met with great compassion and are given the platform to tend to their feelings without judgment. The therapists are skilled at moving from one approach to another, often within the same session, to be able to meet the client’s needs.

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.

Depression can be an isolating, exhausting, and discouraging experience. Often misunderstood by friends and family, it can leave us feeling empty and withdrawn. It can be helpful to have someone walk alongside you, to offer an empathetic ear, and perhaps experiment with some ideas to help you live more free, and happy. It can sometimes be beneficial to identify triggers; events and thought patterns that may be affecting you.

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

Depression is a sign that a person's body is telling them it is not happy - it is in distress. Sometimes this makes perfect sense, such as after a loss, a change, or as a sign of exhaustion/burnout. Sometimes it is more chronic. There may be both medication and psychotherapy required. Because depression leads people to withdraw it is already a sign of health for them to come forward and talk about their depression with a professional. I would use a combination of therapies to treat depression - including talk therapy, schema assessment, emotionally focused therapy, EMDR. Our goal is to understand the message of the depression, and heal it at source, not to mask it.

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.

Various locations in Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario

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.
