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.

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 is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

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.

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.

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.
